Also, having at long last saved up enough shekels to purchase a copy of PS Elements 10 (half price at Currys!), am I better off using the 'Guided Edit ' function while I familiarise myself with the various tools in the 'palette'. If the answer to my last question is 'yes', would it be advisable to avoid the 'enhance colours' option, bearing in mind that it has led to a couple of my photos being rejected on the grounds that the colours weren't "natural"?
fwiw i always shoot in raw format and do colour/ exposure /some initial sharpening /noise reduction in camera raw ,i believe this is less destructive, open in photoshop as a tiff file , carry out remainder of editing in photoshop and save as a tiff leave files for a couple of days then re-check for any minor corrections before saving as a jpeg and uploading to pm seems to work for me but of course no one method suits all and we still get out share of failures

I go in this order:-
Spot removal (if needed)
I (mistakenly?) thought that PS Elements would solve all my post-editing problems, but, as things stand at present, my acceptance ratio seems to be going down, rather than up!! Ah well, if at first you don't succeed...
you have to experiment with different erase settings but this method works be carefull not to oversharpen the sky i usually overcome this by selecting just the aircraft using the quick selection brush
version of photoshop to create them i use a mac so inserting actions are different from windows maybe some of the nice gentlemen on pm could create some for you and email them to you with instructions
a little tip for adding small amounts of sharpening addatively after setting amount and radius in unsharp mask you can add repeatedly by going to the filter option in your elements menu and the last filter used is displayed at the top just click on this and repeat the same amount. you have to set it up for each session bit its quicker than repeatedly going in to the unsharp mask function if you dont have actions set up
