I might have to look into getting photoshop, would so love to be able to do all this,,, So most hair colors are basic sort of hey,,, but like my dad had Ginger hair,, like it wasnt red or orange but like a mixture ,,,until he got old then it was WHITE ,,, I have another photo which I got the other day from a cousin, my dad is the one standing behind his two brothers. so he had blue eyes and ginger hair ,,his older brother had blond hair but a bit darker than blond and his second older brother had dark brown to black hair with darkish skin ... the chairs they were sitting on are cane chairs and were painted with a clear lacquer ,, I think it was called varnish hey,,, the wall of the house is off white with green window trims ... can someone color this one for me,,, NOOO hurry ,,, if you have nothing to do ,, I would love to have it done .. I cannot scan the photo as it came from an email !!!
Much love Sandy

You would be better off to post this photo on a new thread Sandy - (just give it a bit more/different name so it will repost.)  Otherwise people who have already visited this thread might not come again and will miss it.  Best always to post new photos on new threads . . . . .  always assuming you want something done with it I mean.    ;)

I'll give this one a try Sandy.  Having knowledge of the correct colors beforehand is really nice!  Helps a lot!

I'd try Gimp, it's a full photo editor, which is free and there are loads of tutorials on youtube - same learning curve as photoshop without the overheads! John.

  I was using Elements 5 issued 1999 and then I found my elements 11 issued 2012.

     I changed PC's recently and couldn't find my 11.  Spent hours looking for it.

       Then looking for something else I put my hand straight on the 11 software ::) ::) ::)

          Elements is a cut down version of Photoshop. ( i.e a lot cheaper)

          Gimp is good to try, being free
