I am getting to grips with Elements 3 after so many years of not using it.
I had forgotten that the best distort file was Liquify for manipulating an image. However a little practice brought it all back again. Called this one Etna because it made me think of lava streams running from a volcano.
Managed to do 3 more crosswords and now I am averaging about 35-40 minutes entering the words in the squares.
