If someone could please help me with this photo, I'd be most appreciative. This is my Grandparents, and we are putting this photo in the paper for their 65th wedding anniversary. If possible, this is my wish list for the photo

- nice colour enhancement
- cropped if necessary, but we want to keep the hands shown, as they are holding hands and drinking wine.
- take the glare out from behind my Gramps head. There was a mirror, and the flash it showing.

Thank you so much for your time!

hp2- no i don't think they do colour, but if you enhance the color before sending it in, it will look less washed out as a black in white in the newspaper.

Hp- lol, but I can't remember. I like them all, but I think I either used Jnk's, or Evanglines, because I wanted to keep some of the backrground.

i took this course at soo college and we learned on paint shop pro, so that is what i have. i really like it. i would have found it really hard to learn without the course, or someone showing me. but, there are great books out there that teach you how to use them if you are a good learner from a book.
