I am far from finished at all with this . . but wanted to clue you in on a few things in my life..
I lost power in my home .for a few days. and before that I had no water. prior to that. a few months ago……. when their was a surge in my pc. is all I could come up with . was at a moment when I was transferring photos into my pc, and everything got in a froze mode.
well, ever since then my pictures had all been super fuzzy, and I thought it was me…. in the camera they look fine…. upon transferring them , they are all pixelated at such a huge pixelation that it is as if each were the size of a thumbnail .. and I had made them bigger from this size.
It was only the other day that I realized that maybe it was not me, or the camera , but possibly the memory cards had been corrupted. or the cameras driver was corrupted.
but I do believe now it is my computer.
My printer does not recognize my printer, either
so………. let me go and let you know. it is as if I have no camera, and I cannot photoshop anymore , since my pc will not take the program anymore.
what I am left with is . almost nothing. but!. look at what happened for lack of a better word. out of almost nothing
I have taken every thing that I do have and figured a whole new ballgame. It takes the patience of a saint. so , I am a saint now . right ?
I blend by way of taking my old photos and copy pasting them one over the other in various forms. I can twist them and bend them so to speak, and I can paint them slightly in one program. and I then can chop up the leftovers and keep playing with the programs I do have
Photoscape: where I can cut and paste but not blend , easily , as in photoshop , but have learned a few tricks on how to do it by saving again and again at different pastings. lol
Picasa: where I can do the easiest tagging and organizing, and from where I could email a picture or artwork to another person
Virtual art: where I could paint my art into different artwork such as oil painting or watercolor
Magic Express : Where I can do layers and some masking , but very confusing still for me , so allot of hit and miss there for now .
I have more woe stories. but for now I am exhausted.
