after reading an article ina well known computer magazine regarding filters on photoshop. So I decided to sort out a few images on a friends pc with photoshop 7. But there was no filter tools on it, any ideas?
The Filter menu should appear on the main toolbar at the top of the screen. It should go File, Edit, Image, Layer, Select, Filter, View, Window, Help.
The filters are mostly special effects tools, for things like adjusting brightness and colour correction look under Image/Adjustments. Just make sure you work on a copy of the original so if it all goes horribly wrong you can delete it and start again!
