Quite a few of the pictures here are run through a Photoshop wringer before they get uploaded.  Most of the time it’s just cropping something, or making adjustments to try to make up for my crappy picture taking.  Now there’s a great website out there that has all the basic functionality of Photoshop.  It’s free.  And you don’t need to install anything, so you can use it on any computer with internet access.

Heres what you see once your image is loaded.

While not as powerful as Photoshop by any means, there are a few more advanced tools you can have fun with!
