Photo editor: re-size the image, edit levels, then curves
I want to be able to re-size the image, edit levels, then curves, then sharpen, then save. 

However, I don't want to have a set value for it.. for instance, I DO want it to always re-size to say 4x7 but I want the levels window to pop so I can manually adjust them, then after I close it I want the curves to pop, then the sharpen to pop and finally the Save as window to pop... 

Is it possible? All I've been able to do so far is record a set of specific actions that leave me with little room for adjustment... 

Microsoft Digital Image Suite 2006 (*est. $100) is the latest version of Microsoft's photo-editing software. While the last version (Digital Image Pro 10) was mentioned as an also-ran to Adobe Photoshop Element and Paint Shop Pro in reviews, the latest version has improved. Like other photo-editing software, Digital Image Suite includes tools and wizards to walk novices through editing and sharing photos. Digital Image Suite 2006 includes three separate applications: a photo editor, an organizer called Library and a slide-show tool called Photo Story 3.1. 

Ulead PhotoImpact  photo editor
Ulead PhotoImpact is frequently another second choice in reviews. Reviews at PC World and About.com list it among their top choices. It does take a significant amount of space -- up to 700MB of hard drive space for installation. Experts say PhotoImpact is a good photo-editor for animating GIF files, and it comes packed with many add-ins and tools. Though reviews say it is versatile, novices may find it too complicated, and experts may find that the program does not have enough features. PhotoImpact 10 (*est. $80) is a photo-editing software suite that offers a video tutorial, image editor, photo organizer and a GIF animator. However, it has not cracked the number-one spot in any reviews we have found, and it falls behind Adobe and Corel in most reviews. 

Adjusting exposure in photoshop photo editor

Sometimes an image may be too light or too dark for our needs. Ideally a photo should make use of the entire range of luminosity or brightness from black to white. This is also true in conventional photography. If an area of a photo is too light or too dark, it means that part of the contrast range is squeezed into too narrow a band. There are several ways to illustrate this and to modify the way the image output will appear. 
We will try to lighten the sidewalk in the ph-door.jpg image at the right. First save a local copy and load it into Photoshop.

Choose the Image / Adjust / Levels... menu item to work with the histogram for the image. A histogram is a graphical representation of the distribution of colors by order of brightness from black to white. The dark part of the image is mostly in the leftmost peak on the graph. The input levels are the values that will be displayed as black (0 - the black triangle), white (255 - the white triangle), and the midpoint between them (1.00 - the gray triangle). To change these values we will slide the triangles by dragging them with the mouse.
