As requested, I'm uploading the PP I made on photo basics. Starting with a good photo is the foundation for getting a great photo in Pshop. This slideshow goes over some of the differences between point and shoot and dslr cameras, their pros and cons, and some of the most important features to have control over. Please email me if you have any questions!
