Help with Editing

Hi

I wondered if there were any tutorials around for the Olympus Master 2 software, i have used Picassa but someone told me that the Oly 2 was better. I cant afford photoshop.
Thanks in anticipation
Caroline

I don't know of any tutorials but I would suggest you download (free) the newer Viewer 2 software from the Olympus site - it may well save you changing again at a later date.

Don't forget Gimp - with Ufraw if you dabble in "raw".

Thanks, have done this now!
I have tried Gimp but had trouble opening it. Guess I just need to decide what I want!
Thanks

Other free programs you may want to look at are FastStone Image Viewer (very good indeed) and Raw Therapee

I'll second that. I used GIMP for quite a while but this is even better and is now the editing software I use most. You get a nice big screen view and operation is quite intuitive.

Hope this helps.

p.s. You can download FastStone at http://www.faststone.org

It's not something I use myself, I only mentioned it because I know others rate it highly. I've just tried my copy (V2.4.1 - there may well be more recent versions) and it opens E-620 and E-600 ORFs without any problem.
