Thanks to all who replied.

there is some Heavy Stuff on some of these sites - very technical but very interesting. I have picked up a lot of useful info, not least how to calibrate my monitor properly - now shots I thought needed touching up look fine and print as on the screen!.

I have also been abel to remove colour casts from old negatives and slides that I have scanned.

Thanks again, and I would recommend all the sites suggested

Did you find any one of the sites better than the others or did you use them all?
