One of the great things about Adobe Photoshop is that you don't have to learn it all at once. You can work at any level and produce profitable work. Whether you are a novice or advanced worker, it's simply a matter of matching the services you offer to the skills you have acquired so far, expanding both as you gain experience. The new services you advertise will bring new customers through your door, where it should be a relatively easy job to persuade them to return to sample your long-established photographic skills in 'wet' photography. Today's customers are inceasingly aware of digital developments and will want to use photographers who show that they are up to date with the latest digital photographic techniques.

What I aim to do here is introduce you to more of the basic techniques which combine to make Photoshop into a powerful digital 'Lightroom'.

A word of warning. The Lightroom can force you to forget things - including family, friends and the running of your business. When you are immersed in the digital world, analogue clocks and watches seem to go at treble speed. Time really does fly when you are having fun.
