Photo Editing

I am continuing to learn how to edit my photos with Picasa.  I am amazed at how much I can do with this free download.  The new version is here.  Today I learnt about watermarks and then looked at some more of the Tuning features.  One feature is using Fill Light.  This is used where the background e.g. the sky is bright, making the subject, in this case a koala, too much like a silhouette.  I know that if he had been closer, a flash would have lit him up, but looking at the photo retrospectively I decided to try the Fill Light - you can see how well it worked, bringing out colour in the tree and texture in the koala's fur.  Quite possibly I could have played with it for longer to get it better but was pleased with this.
