So...no crafting time yesterday....and now I'm waiting for A.G. to come spend an hour or two with me as his mother takes N.B.G. for her 1 month well baby check.
But I will get to the business of creating later today, I hope! So hang in there with me!!!
One thing I wanted to share, though, is often times how I keep up with all the blogs I love to read! When I go to bed at night I grab my iPad and open up the fabulous FLIPBOARD iPad app and go to my GoogleReader and read all of your fabulous blogs! It is so pretty to see in this format! I love it and you all look so so pretty! (You look pretty on my laptop, too...but I do like saying goodnight to you all by checking in with you before I go Night-Night!)
So, this is the way I see you...and this photo I took with my iPhone so it's not so great because my room was dark when I took it:
Judy, I think I see your blog there! :)
I was reading Scrapbooks, Etc. magazine yesterday (June, 2011 issue) and there was an article on some photo editing. I use Photoshop Elements 8.0 and am good with that program. I've looked at upgrading to Photoshop CSE but it is just so pricey and for my needs (basic photo editing) I think PSE is enough.
Anyway, I love to edit my photos a bit at times and a new tip I learned yesterday from Scrapbooks, Etc was with lightening a dark photo. It was so easy...I've done it other ways and gotten similar results but the steps I used to take before reading this were much more involved. Perhaps you knew this...I didn't.
1. Open up your photo.
2. Make a duplicate layer and stay on your duplicate layer and click on your layers palette.
3. Click on "screen".
4. It will lighten your photo significantly and then you can adjust the opacity to get the lightening you want.
And that's it! Love little tips like that that make my life easier! LOL!
Well...A.G. is here and needing my attention!
