 :thankyou: Gita... for liking my take on this photo.  I was overwhelmed by the immense variation of the green hues, but soldiered on anyway.

Maria,

Thank you for those kind words.

After reading all the different media and techniques you put into this painting, I am even in more awe of it.  So incredibly well done.

Happy you found Microsoft's free program called PAINT.  Besides allowing adjustments to any percentage larger or smaller, it has other features, but that's the only one I use it for.

I am going to check out the one Val mentioned and see how it compares. It is so wonderful that we all share what we learn.

aloha

Maria, I had to giggle at your comment about using everything but the kitchen sink and you almost, did just that but left out the kitchen sink!! That really tickled me.

Thanks Val and Maria, I installed Fast Stone  I think I am going to like it way better than PAINT.  I does so much more!

I just set it as my default for opening photos.
