Default Point and Shoot camera + good editing program.

Im not very camera savvy - I like to point and shoot.

That being said, my Olympus died recently so I went to newegg.com and found one that sounded interesting.

I ended up with a Canon PowerShot SX150IS
(on sale for a measly $150~)

I use a program call Paint Shop Pro to edit my pictures (often you can get it for free with rebate at Frys.com)

So here are three shots of my eldest grandson

This was taken in my work office at home
Yuck... nothing but mess and Avon behind him... not the shot I wanted at all.

Now let me see if I can post 3 pix
This is the original shot


So I first removed the background using Paint Shop Pro
A very user friendly program
and got this:


Then I filled the background with black for a more studio look
This is the finished pix



Not bad for a Grandma with a point and shoot!
(at least I think so!)

Bonnie that looks good. Very nice clean up with the tools you have. It's amazing to see how fast technology has come along and it's so easy to do things like this now.

It was a few years ago specific for "paint shop pro"

I dont believe the classes are offered any longer which is a shame as its a really easy program to use for ppl like me. But you can find tutorials online if you do a search.
