I’ve been using just my iphone 4 and Picasa for ever on this blog. It was okay but Picasa started crashing on me and acting like a woman with hormones gone rampant.
Like a true former missionary child, I took this as a SIGN FROM GOD to get my slack-assed act together and learn Lightroom. Or Photoshop. Or whatever it is the big kids are using these days.
I saved up and bought Photoshop and Lightroom. Then froze up in front of the millions of options and fancy words and hard-sounding things.
I went back to Picasa with my tail stuck between my legs.
Then Picasa froze on me and just wouldn’t load any photos anymore. God was REALLY talking to me now, right?!
YOU MUST LEARN PHOTOSHOP. OR AT LEAST LIGHTROOM.
That’s where I am now. Fumbling around Lightroom (which seems like a watered down version of Photoshop). I really can’t figure out much yet (- and isn’t that optimistic of me, adding a “yet” there?!) besides the export, import and watermark.
That is the longest explanation ever for why I didn’t edit these photos at all! Watermarked only (and even that was random because I couldn’t tell what font was what!). Hopefully this can serve as a starting point of reference later for some post on “see how far I’ve come?!”
But of course, with my muse being so adorable… it really doesn’t need much in the way of edits. Right?
