I have been playing around with CS2 all week because my normal photo editing software has crashed and it's been a total revelation. I've had it for nearly 2 years and I've done a course etc but so far I haven't managed to make friends with it until this week. There are so many free resourses out there to help you understand it better. I have downloaded loads of free actions from various sites but my favourite is www.thepioneerwoman.com as she has some really great free stuff including a brilliant action set. Go and have a look. Here are some of my CS tweaked photos...

Will post some more in a while..
