This is from my Cream Abundance rose bush that I ordered from Oregon last Spring. It is growing in a big pot. Here is the story: https://barneykin.wordpress.com/2008/05/15/my-thornbury-castle/

I edited the picture with the new Picasa 3 software that has just become available. I was wary of downloading it because I already had Picasa 2 on my computer, but I finally took the plunge today. There was no problem, as it just updated the Picasa 2.

It seems to be working quite well. I have already made a fancey collage, which is much better than the old software, as I can move the pictures about. I really like the ability to place a watermark on the image.

If you want to try Picasa 3, I heartily recommend it. It is free and very easy to use. Here is a video that explains it:

How to Goofyfy a Grandchild in One Easy Step: Go to http://www.picnik.com . Yes, it’s that easy. It’s a Picnik, with a “k.”

After making my “Merry Christmas Card” at Flickr, I did some further investigation and discovered that one can utilize the Picnik application entirely free at their own web site: http://www.picnik.com/. There is no need to go through Flickr. Flickr is just making it easy to do it with photographs that are already uploaded there. Actually this Picnik thing will get photos from other photo storage sites and also from your own computer.  

Someone at Flickr inquired after viewing my Christmas photos if I am ready for Christmas. Of course I’m not ready! I am enjoying the “readiness” of others. Such as today, instead of readying my own home for Christmas, I am headed to Mount Vernon, even though the weather today seems to be sleeting. I am curious to see how the Mount Vernon ladies have decorated my cousin George’s house for the holiday. I am only going because my friend Martha is doing the driving. 🙂

I created this card with Flickr’s new “Edit Photo” feature. It is great and I am a living testament to it being “Granny-proof.” I have not been using the Flickr site for a long time, as I have been uploading my photographs to Picasa Web Albums. I just returned at Thanksgiving time, and today there was this wonderful new announcement of on-line photo editing from Flickr. It is something I have been wanting to try, as I have Adobe Photoshop Elements on my old laptop and it is so slow and cumbersome to use, I get frustrated. I tried this and it really works. I love it.

I have not yet tried to actually do photo editing as I was so excited to be able to create a frame and write text on the photograph, something that cannot be done with Picasa2, my usual photo editing software.  I suspect that the photo editing may be as good as Picasa2’s. I will try it the next time I have photos uploaded.

When you look at your photographs now at Flickr, you will see above them a new button on the right hand side that reads “Edit Photo.” The application or software that they are using is Picnik. Yes, it’s that easy – it’s a “picnik.” Kudos to Flickr!
