Many people ask how I take my pics for my blog.
(Ok. A couple of people have asked.)
Especially the driving ones.
It's all in the editing.
Like anything else.
As a blog friend once said,
"How do you create a statue of an elephant?
You trim away all the parts that don't look like an elephant."
Most of my pics start out as a lop-sided blob of potential.
Kind of like my own weight-loss journey.
"I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free."
Most of my pics don't even have the benefit of aim!
I always strive for safety. Sometimes I drive around the block
to get an especially cool shot. Time and traffic permitting.
I don't photoshop pictures, except for maybe
a slight adjustment in contrast or exposure.
But I don't change the HTML or
make one picture look heavier or skinnier.
I don't have those kind of skills, besides!
That's all actual.
I actually couldn't get out of the bathtub without getting on all fours.
Actually picking a metal chair 'cuz a plastic chair might break.
Actually not wanting to fly 'cuz the seat belt won't latch.
Some of these "before and after" shots are pngs or screen shots.
(Mac command is command shift 4 )
Or you can make a montage in photobucket. (link)
Regular photobucket is free.
I use the "pro" edition for the extra features.
It's maybe a couple of bux a month. (link)
These are pictures and screen shots, done on my MacBook.
A Mac is good because it will intuitively learn you.
And there are almost no viruses on a Mac.
Still, I use Clam X to keep the machine from
even carrying a virus to someone else.
Recently, I did have a funky program downloaded.
But I called Apple
at 1 800 MY- APPLE (link)
and they talked me through a fix.
Some dumb non-Mac program was wrecking havoc!
Boo! But it's all better now! Yay!
Have a great Sunday!
Get lots of rest to
start the new week!
