Newbie here

Hi all,

I am new to this forum. I have been shooting with a K100D since November 2006. I used to shoot with a Canon AE1 and a Pentax K1000 that was from my dad, so I am new to DSLR.

I have a few lens, the standard 18-55, 50-200 tele, 50MM Macro, and I just ordered the FA 77MM 1.8 liminted potrait

I recently got attached to Picasa and Lightroom. One of the the thing I notice is that Picasa have a limitation of exporting JPEG to 96x96 DPI, light room can do a lot better, but Lightroom does not offer special effect like "GLOW", "Soft Focus" etct, my question is, does lightroom actually support these, or am I not looking at the right place?

Haven't used lightroom either. I can mess around with it tomorrow and see. I just got CS3 at work and I haven't had a chance to play with yet.

Welcome from another GTA'er!
