After watching Maureen Taylor's excellent webinar, I have one comment to make re photo editing software. I can NEVER figure out where the originals of photos are (I'm currently using Picasa, have used several others). A short webinar on understanding the basics of photo collections would be very interesting to me. I know how to crop, adjust color temperatures, sharpen, etc., but I have NO idea where the pictures really ARE, and I seem to have multiple images in multiple files and can't figure out how to manage them properly, including how to find them when I know they're "in there".

If this seems to be something others would also like to know about, I'd love to see you do a webinar on photo program basics.

Thanks again to Maureen.
