It's Paintshop Pro X1, cheaper than the latest X2. I only used it to resize and compress, but it is very different to my version7, whose disk I have lost.

It's Paintshop Pro XI (£19.99 from Amazon), but I use the old fashioned methods i'm used to with version 7. I'm not keen about auto processes which appear to be the specials on the later ones.

That would be a very brave thing to do, in the case of Teddy. mind you , the vet has twice dared risk a raspberry.

Sweet photo of Teddy and Joly - are they closely related? They look like they could be brothers in that photo.

They are not closely related, but Teddy is by Homerbrent Expression ,from a Toraylac bitch (whose grandfather is also Homerbrent Expression). Joly's grandmother is a Homerbrent bitch, whose father was Toraylac Joshua, (who has multiple entries in Teddy's pedigree) and his father has several Homerbrent relatives.

Teddy is well marked and stockier than Joly, while Joly is mainly white with only has short ears and a less masculine head, so they are easy to tell apart. I used to get Joly and Izzy mixed up, when only getting a glimpse of their coats, as their markings were very similar.

Hi Barbara,

Is the package easy to use? I am currently using the google freebie to edit my pictures but its quite limited. Although I work in computers I'm not very "computer minded" - Ive thrown a wobbler at publisher this afternoon because it keeps deleting things I don't want to delete! (I'm trying to do the boys pedigrees in pictures)

I find it quite easy, but mainly I use , but did have the version 7 for years, so am used to it. XI, not the latest (X2 is out) has lots of instant fixes for photos , that weren't in 7 (they did a major change at X), but I prefer to do things manually (eg red eye gives much better results-the eg on this thred was done very quickly, but with time, you can reproduce a really good natural eye , complete with glints).

Paul had a demo copy of Photoshop and said Paintshop was much easier to use (and much cheaper). You can get a demo of Paintshop from the Corel website.

To prepare for the web, the crop tool is click to select then drag a box, resize is just a quick entry in a dialogue box (i keep a max of 450 pixels on each edge with ratio kept constant) and export gives a dialogue box to up or down the compression, an ok and save as.
