    maybe?
    it all boils down to how proficient your are with editting tools and how much effort you are putting in at that time

    I'm far too poor to even afford a mince-and-cheese pie :D. What I usually do is I magnify the image, and then use the polygonial lasso tool to select whatever I need to select. IMO, the polygonial lasso tool is probably the most useful tool for photo-manipulation.

    I use photoshop cs2 (version 8), but photoshop v5 is still good enough to do all these editing..

    Absolutely scintillating work (as usual), lurker!

    Look at the physical symmetry in Lin Dan's pre-smash position :eek: :eek: :eek:

    There's lots of 'wrong'-looking basketball photos..You dont see things like this often in badminton.. but basketball is more of a contact-sport than badminton anyway.
