I have the 18 - 135 and I really like it, but it is my only lens. Knowing what I know now, if I were in your shoes having the 18 - 55, I would save for either the 70 - 300 or the 18 - 200. Not that I have anything against the 18 - 135, I just think you'll eventually want something even longer (like me) so why not put your money there sooner rather than later. I think it does make a great first lens though.

I've always heard it can cause a conflict to run two antivirus programs at the same time.

I don't have much experience with McAfee but I've had loads of trouble from Norton and I no longer recommend it to my customers. Norton is extremely bloated and makes most computers run slower. I use the free version of AVG.

In Topic: Picasa Vs. Acdsee

Picasa works great for photos and jpgs, but the problem is with PNG files. It doesn't display the transparency correctly in a transparent png file.

ACDsee displays them flawlessly and pretty fast too.

I use Picasa for my pictures and ACDSee for my scrapbooking supplies.

Hi Ang, I live in Indiana just on the other side of the river from Owensboro, Ky. In fact, I go to Owensboro all the time. According to google maps, you are about 2 hours away.

I know there are a few others here, cause I've asked this question before. I'm sure they'll chime in soon.

Good to meet you!

If you can string words together in a sentence, arrange things in your house the way you like them, or chose clothes you like, then you are creative. You never know, once you unleash that creativity.

When I used to paint, I would tell myself I'm going to paint something no one will ever see. That gave me the freedom to create without expectations or feeling like I had to impress someone. Then, at the end I could choose to show someone or toss it out. That might help with her fear.
