Reading is fundemental! - First off, you have to read the full description! It clearly states that these apps are tutorials. You just have to read the full description. Photoshop cost an arm, leg and a few elbows. I hate to see good people wasting their money on a good product that they don't need because they did not take the time to read the whole discription. One minute of reading can save you 19.99. Second, with all the pictures I've taken over in Iraq I want them to be of a great quality and this TUTORIAL should aide myself as well as other in it. I like it.

This is a tutorial. - I'm sure this would be great for people who actually wanted the tutorial. I read the first sentence, and looked at the photos, thinking it was Photoshop. If I would have known any better, I would have spent the credits on something else. :-)
