A Picture from Edna

This is my very first panorama photograph ever! I was not sure which size focal length to use, as my images were recorded as 5mm focal length. 5mm was not one of the choices for the Canon software, so I used the shortest available – 24mm. Then I went to Picnik and made a poster from it.

My neighbor Jeff was my inspiration. He posted one of his creations of the Lincoln Memorial at Facebook. Of course, Jeff is a professional photographer for the AP, so it was quite a photo. I hope this photograph will be inspiration for my Red Hats ladies, as I shot it from the very same hotel that they are planning on staying in next Spring when we all descend with our Red Hats on Salt Lake City to do some genealogy. 🙂

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!
