2) adjust light contrast and colour of the added parts to blend them in the new 'place', otherwise they are going to be a dead give away ....

And again here, what tools to use?

I wish there was a place for beginners ..real beginners , I feel really stupid posting these questions, especially in a forum with people who obviously know their business. This is very hard.

Thanks for letting me vent!! Neb

I have not had an opportunity to read ALL the posts ,so maybe the functions you are referring to are explained there.
Hi nebgranny,

I work with Photoshop .... I'm sorry and a bit ashamed to admit that, beside a quick and superficial look, I don't have any experience with any other image manipulation software like PSP, PSE etc. .... this means that, unfortunately, I don't know the equivalent Commands, Tools and/or Procedures they use to get to the PS results....

But ... I do know that in our Software Forum there are sections with excellent Tips, FAQs and, when possible, advice on how to 'translate' Commands or Procedures so that different programs can perform similar actions and achieve similar results .....

.... I might download the PSP Trial ... but I'm not promising anything ...
