    Hi Denise


    I like the Clear effect with your pic #2. So much so that I downloaded all the picture styles myself and had a play with it. Created some good and some not so good results.


    Have you got some more pic's that you have used pic styles. Please some some.


    I use NIK software. Very interesting effects.

    Thanks, Wally! This was the first time I used the "Clear". The only other one I have used on a few photos is the "Autumn Hues" as in the photo below. I am looking forward to using that one soon on alot of autumn photos. Colors are starting to change here in Wisconsinpretty quickly now. Other than that, I think the Emerald and Twilght are alittle extreme for me. I haven't tried the others but I think they will be pretty good.

    I think so. They wrote algorithms to adjust the photo based on the lens and body combo. It does a nice job making geometric corrections and adjusting exposure, cropping, white balance, etc. But if you want to be more creative and use layers for example you would still need Photoshop or equivalent. I often combine both to get the look I want.

    I hunted for 30 minutes earlier today, and have been unable to find out where on earth the Download Library went on the Canon website. Where do you download these picture styles from?

    I downloaded the trial version last night! The auto editing is subtle but very nice, I like the changes it made to some of my photos. I haven't gotten a chance to play around with alot yet, but I'm hoping to do a great deal more before my trial runs out.

    Thanks!
