    Auto crop function in Photoshop gives errors. Other possibilities?

    I want to digitize my photo albums. As the albums need to go to my ex-wife, I want to scan at the best possible quality (size is not a major issue). I have a scanner, which does a decent job, but it will be quite hard to fit some of the pages on the scanner glass. I have found that taking...

    Difference in sharpness in PS RAW and PS

    I have recently started taking pictures in RAW and this has made a huge difference! What I have noticed, is once editing in RAW and I open the photo in PS, the picture in PS is often not so sharp. I attach 2 photos- not good examples- but difficult if I need to sharpen more in PS. Your opinion...

    Shadows/highlights in PS 7?

    I found this excellent tutorial on how to change shadows, etc. It included the ability to change the amount, the tonal width and the radius, BUT, I cannot find it in my PS 7. Is this function not available in Photoshop 7? If not, is there something similar?

    I have PS 7 and learning. My preview photos are not of a good quality. I have read that one should change the resolution of the photo from 72 dpi to 300 dpi. Should one do it, and if so, how do I do it and set it as the default when I open a new image? Thanks

    How to create this border

    I hope someone can give me advice. I saw this border in a forum, and like it. Is there anyone that can give me an idea how to add something similar to my photos? (or is this a specific programme/ add-on that was used)
