Having been a fan of A.net for years, I've decided I'd like to try to get some of my photos uploaded on the site. I shoot with a Canon 40D with a Canon EF 70-300mm F4-5.6 IS lens. I've shot an auto race and a couple airshows so far and feel pretty good about the results I've gotten. On average I'm finding that about 10% or less of the images I've shot are worth editing. I've been using Picasa as a photo editing program, and am generally satisfied with the results. Will Picasa serve me for purposes of getting posted on A.net, or must I use Photoshop? I have Photoshop Elements 7, but have yet to use it. In fact I just installed it this morning. I'm a bit apprehensive about uploading that first photo with all the talk of rejection by the editorial board. I've read the FAQs and other tutorials and they've helped. Beyond those, can someone recommend a few basic fixes using elements that I should perform to get a couple of my photos accepted? I know it's tough not seeing them, but any help would be appreciated.
