About the image: I used Corel Photo Paint - I used the clone tool a lot. I'm still learning and haven't tried the healing tool yet. I did a sample target to restore the color to the photo - which made a dramtic difference. This picture is almost 50 years old.

I use it for everything - to correct and make regulars photographs better and more focused on the target - for Christmas presents for the Grandparents - cards, mailings, wall art, anything I can think of - and I try and think of everything! Any excuse to play!
