My picture editing software - Micrografx Picture Publisher - is letting me down now that I've got the Lumix FZ20. Inexplicably, my images get graids of little squares. like this.

So I'm a beginner in Photoshop now. A weird experience as I almost completely mastered PP10, which can do all the same things as Photoshop, but it works radically different. In Photoshop, everything is in the most unexpected places.

Anyway, this peacock is what I did in Photoshop...
