    hmm.. good question i alwas have trouble to answer.... there is no good translation into English, therefore some Brits adopted the word "kitsch" and use it even in English.

    I could only give examples of Kitsch, ... like putting up plastic dwarves in your garden, or .. well, hard to describe ... .

    it does not mean cheap, some kitsch can be very expensive ... could someone help? Corinna? *lol*

    This should much rather be in the "Graphics Programmes" of "Digital Photography" ... it goes far beyond photography alone. I think I shall move it over there.

    And it does not meet my personal taste, but it need not. Why should it.
    But I don't laugh!

    ("I don't know why I did it, it seemed like a good idea at the time, there were no other amusements or games to play to pass the night away ..." this is a song by Mike Batt, were you thinking of that one when you chose the title for this thread?)

    We use kitsch here in the U.S. too - or at least we did before the younger people on the forum grew up.

    P.S.Your showing your age ther lafoto,Mike batt!!;)
