Thank you Chris. I have decided to go ahead and buy the fuji finepix s4000.
When it arrives I'm sure I will be back with more questions
Yes, do let us know how you get on.
While your waiting for it to arrive, download the manual http://www.fujifilm.com/support/digi..._manual_01.pdf and get stuck in lol
Also, have a look at Pixlr photo editor and tutorials in my signature below - taking the picture is only half the job. The other half is bringing it to life. The most useful tutorial is the http://ictpublish.com/pixlr/Videoes/...06_Levels.html
Lots of photo tutorials in my sticky on the AP sister site http://www.amateurphotographer.co.uk...-Free-programs look down the bottom of the page.
