thanks again. It was, as I said elsewhere, done by my "corner" dev+scan shop 
a Noritsu scanner, scanned to CD and handed to me. I cropped it - slightly 
as I 
recall - and adjusted the levels **slightly** to get the effect I wanted, 
really not much; and then a little usm and that was it apart from converting 
a JPEG for the gallery.

I use PS Elements 2.0 as I think it much better than 4.0 and I am too tight 
buy PS CS, because it has a whole lot of stuff that I neither need nor want! 
copy of PS 7.0 I might buy, but you can't gert them. The only thing I miss 
Elements is the lack of curves.
