|Hello All!! Yes, I'm still alive....just took a very long hiatus and dealt with some family issues that required my attention. Sorry for the extended absence, but, I'm ready to pick up on Composition and thought we'd jump into Cropping and Editing as Dave might be having another photo contest again this year, although I have no knowledge of it---so don't go getting prematurely excited about it!! But, in case he does, or, in order to learn more about the ins and outs, do's and don't's of it, we'll take a look at the editing software that comes standard with all Windows photo programs. It's very easy to use and is a great help for the everyday photographer. If our compositions are good and worthy of editing, we can make them even better with good cropping and perhaps a few light tweaks here and there. |
So, stay tuned as I'm writing up the next segment on Cropping and Editing before returning to Composition. That way if the contest does come around, or, you may even have many photos of your gardens this year, you'll be ready to "Wow" everyone with your awesome photos!
The program we'll be using is "Windows Live Photo Gallery" and you can find it in the main partition of your computer programs. Just click on the program and it will open for you. If you're not already using it to load your photos into Windows, you may want to transfer some over to it for the purpose of following along. If anyone needs me to walk them through the steps to do that I'd be happy to help you! Just give a holler!
Thanks! Talk with you soon,
Beauty pleases, not only the eyes, but, the heart as well. Sheila
