Stupid stupid site. I thought (in my innocence) that I could just bring up on-line what was in the March '04 PC World. Just do a search.

Oh no, that would be too easy. 7 hits going back to March 2000.

So, I tried to search for Photoshop cos I wanted to re-read an article comparing photo editing software. Lots of hits certainly, but mostly PF1 posts. No luck.

What am I doing wrong? I tried the advanced screen. Wasted half an hour. Pity I lent the mag to a friend.

Cheers

Just ran a search and it appears to scan the article title rather then the body of the article.

That may help refine the search a little more closely.

Just as a matter of interest. I Googled "Photoshop Elements" and it came up with the PC World article second hit. :^O

So much for the IDG search facility!

And it appears I should have looked for "Digital Imaging". Looking for photo software was obviously too simple.

Thanks for your help.
