Thank ya'll for allowing me into your Canon forum. I did my homework for a few weeks before purchasing my new Canon 30D, 70-200 f2.8 L lens, and 24-70 f2.8 L lens. I am a novice, before hurricane Katrina I owned a Canon AE-1. This is a pretty big jump for me. 3 weeks ago I didn't even know what an L lens was. I had purchased an XTI on an Impulse buy because It was on sale I brought it back after doing my homework. Thank god for doing my homework and this forum.
I have one question. I would like to touch up a photo from this weekend. I took a picture of my sons this weekend but there is a piece of wire hanging behind one of them. Is there something in the Canon software I can touch this photo up with.

Thanks again

Adobe photoshop elements should have come with your camera; try using the clone tool.

Attached is a little jpg I did in 30 seconds to get rid of the palm tree.

The circled icon is the clone tool.
Before using it; you need to tell Adobe where you want it to pull the info to clone from;
I chose the area circled by the red circle in the sky. To select it; hold down the ALT key and click where you want to sample from.

I typically make 3-4 passes over an area; with the Opacity set at 50%
The second picture (bottom) is after 1 pass. The third pic on the right is after 4-5 passes. I hadn't cloned the rooftop yet so you can still see the 'stump' near the roofline.

This should be enough to get you going. Some here highly recommend creating a layer for this stuff; but I'll start you out slowly. Remember to never save over the top of your original file so you can always revert to it and start again.

Good luck and ask questions if you get stuck!

lol, I too just jumped from an AE-1 to a digi rebel...well, a canon point and shoot in between, but I didn't really like it/use it much....I miss the AE-1 manual focus view, but that's about it. oh, I also love my old shutter button! :)

quite a difference ain't it? :D

good luck

Good job, Tom. In case Dedeaux doesn't have PSE, I'm moving this to PP.
