S. Walks! – Collage

Caroline commented that one of my photos would look better if I cropped it and suggested I download Picasafrom Google. I am somewhat of a PhotoShop girl, but have not been able to purchase a copy and am not happy with the online version. So when I was directed here I was a bit sceptical, but I have to say that it is a good, if basic, photo editing system One thing that gives it an edge in comparison with some other free suites I have tried that you have the ability to create albums and orginize your pics from the same place you edit them. So… I checked it out, and really can’t thank Caroline enough.

I have been playing around with Picasa  for a few days (Click here to download Picasa from Google) and while it is quite basic it does some interesting things. I was really impressed with the collage feature that allows you to upload as many photos as you’d like into one file and automatically arranges all of them into a collage style jpeg file. There are a few different options for the collage format and you can also apply all the effect available for single photos to the collage as a whole.

New Goal: S. Walks!

The following passages are the same as the page called “S. Walks”. I wanted a page to reference when I write my S. Walks posts to explain what they were all about, but I also wanted to post it as an explanation before I just start posting pictures!
My goal is to post at lest four seperate posts with pictures from walks I took that day. It is my way of forcing myself to see and recognize some good things everyday. I hope you enjoy… Best, -S.

I have been searching for another person who has blogged about spinal surgery. Finally, I found one and in desperation left a comment on the blog even though there had been no activity for  months. I got a reply! In the reply I got a wealth of support, encouragement and advice, far beyond what I had been expected.

I still can’t thank you enough, TitaniumBabe!!
