Right, So I'm deciding to try and learn some stuff instead of just taking pics and putting them into Picasa. I'll be honest and say, I never do any kind of post editing but want to. So my question is this: I don't really have much experience so any software would be a new experience. I currently use Picasa for storage and management. I have Elements that I got with the computer Lightroom is only £90 on Amazon at the moment. Is the editing features of Picasa substantial to learn the basics of what I should be doing to a picture to improve it or do I go full hog and use Adobe with the extra options. If the latter, do I use Elements or fork out for Lightroom? Opinions, please.
