Ok spider friends! If you know the reference... So the other night I was teaching a blogging class at my favorite altered art/mixed media/ scrappers hub- the fantastic Mystic Paper in Mesa, Az. I will talk more about class in another posting in a few.
But I wanted to share this before I leave the house today. I need feedback on this one. No blurkers... you types that look and no comment.
On this one I want feedback.
So one of the biggest problems I hear about from people when it comes to blogging, digital scrapping, Etsy, etc... Is photo editing. Software on the computer. What to use, what's simple, not simple. Etc. Etc.. So I have been working on this one. There are numerous programs/software out there. Most of these can be over complicated, difficult, expensive, or takes time to learn. Myself-I love Photoshop. Before Photoshop-I used a mixture of other software. But Photoshop takes money and a little time. So what to do for those that are not quite computer savy? Don't want to spend the money yet? Don't have the time? Not sure what to buy? Big question?
Well there are several free ware photo editing programs out there.
But the easiest and quickest ones that I have found that offer the least amount of hassle are these two:
Picnik & Google's Picasa! Here are links to the two! Just click on the blue type.
Between the two-I prefer Picasa. For those that have a "Blogger" Blog- Picasa may work better for you. Reason for that? Because Google owns Picasa. As soon as you get your gmail account you receive a Picasa account. As well as a blogger account. They all feed into each other. Most people are unaware of this until they get going. I know I was. Every time you upload a photo onto your blogger account it automatically gets saved to your Picasa account and goes into your Picasa photo library. That is unless you have the image housed somewhere else(like photobucket, Flickr, Etc.)
With Picnik after you get done editing your photo you can choose to send it to your computer,Flickr,or Picasa account.
Both offer lots of ways to manipulate and edit pictures.Both also let you feed your pictures to special destinations like "Flickr" with very little hassle. Both are free. So have fun- check it out. Keep creating! I would love to hear any feed back. If people like these? Or do not like these? Was this helpful for anyone?
