Photoshop Elements 6

Yes! I finally bought Adobe Photoshop Elements 6! I've wanted this for a few weeks now. I think I got a good deal. At Staples yesterday, with tax, the total came to just under $85. Fortunately, Judy Kerman gave me an introductory tutorial today. Until yesterday, I'd never used Photoshop before.

Anyway, now we have an unequivocal answer to that pressing historical question: exactly how did Walt Whitman change after reading essays by Ralph Waldo Emerson? Here we have before and after photos:

Ralph Waldo Emerson: Proud to be an American

Emerson's essays influenced Whitman as a poet. Emerson's letter to Whitman gave Whitman more confidence as a poet in the public eye so to speak.

-- "It is our goal to appreciate and improve our talents, to share our own work and to communicate the joys of poetry with others. Everyone's poetry is valued."
