Photo Center photo editor

The program reads and writes all the popular graphics file formats, including JPG, GIF, TIFF, and BMP, and supports a wide range of printing styles (full-bleed single images, multiple photos on the same page). Finally, the included Photo Album program allows you to find and then organize your photos into albums that you can browse, print out or share electronically via a wizard that creates a simple Web site in a few mouse clicks. The world isn't short of photo editing software, but Photo Center is definitely worth considering for beginners and enthusiasts alike. --Rob Beattie 

Photoshop, digital imaging in general

Ok so I am pretty much completely new to Photoshop, and to digital imaging in general, I know what I want to do and I know it's possible with layers but I just can't figure it out. Heres what I want, I do a lot of B&W photography, that is I desaturate the shots in PS, what I really want to do is to desaturate the image, then blend the B&W image with the color one, with the result being a black and white image with a beautiful golden sunset as background, so basically taking two copies of the image, one B&W and one color then blending them together to get the color sky background in the B&W image. If anyone knows where I can find a step by step tutorial or something on this I would greatly appreciate it. 
There are many diff ways of doing this in Photoshop. 

Make the B&W the top layer and the color version right under it. 
Now with the B&W layer active in the layers pallette window click on the little icon on the bottom edge of the layers window, second from the left. It should be a square with a circle in it. This adds a mask to the B&W layer. 


With Photo Editor you can refine your digital photos, draw natural artwork and effortlessly produce superb graphics for the web. (5MB)
