First Steps

A s a simple introduction to the program, this chapter will take you through the fi rst basic steps involved in digital photography from downloading your pictures from your camera to the computer to holding an enhanced print in your hand. We won’t get involved in any manual or complex editing or enhancement techniques, there will

be plenty of time for these in the next couple of chapters; instead, we will look at the various ways

that you can get your images from your camera or scanner into the program and see how you can

manage the pictures once they are there. Then we will select an individual photograph, rotate and

crop the image, save the changed fi le and fi nally print the picture. So let’s get started.
