Has anyone tried using Snapseed? Any comments about it?
I'm just curious, because it looks fun to play with.

"church Ladies" Kit Or Word Art

27 February 2012 - 11:03 AM

I belong to the Catholic Women's League at our church. I have taken over the task of documenting the photos and making the scrapbooks of all our events. Many photos include our League donating money or gifts to various charities and organizations. I could really use some specific word art.

Maybe it could be a SS Word Art and Alpha Template???

From Our Heart
Many Hands Make Light Work
Joy of Giving
Together We Are Stronger

My list got long!

Having a few of the phrases and a coordinating alpha set would go a long way to speed up my work!
I have been doing so many pages that it finally dawned on me how much easier even just word art would make my task!

Of course an entire kit would be awesome! I could really use some Catholic embellishments too, like a rosary, chalice, host, cross, crucifix.

I know this is a big request, but I figure there is no harm in asking.

Thanks so much!:)

Iphone Photos

27 February 2012 - 10:33 AM

I have some photos on my iPhone that I would like to get in a LO. I emailed them to myself, from my phone, at their actual size of 1.2MB. Once I get them into PSE, and get them to 300 dpi they are too small to use well. I haven't printed an iPhone photo either, but I'm guessing they don't turn out well. Any tips, suggestions, or way to use my iPhone photos besides posting online?

Newbie To Lightroom 3

14 August 2011 - 08:55 AM

Yesterday I downloaded the 30 day trial of Ltghtroom 3. I had a blast clicking and learning, more clicking that learning though! :lol:

I came up with a few images I wanted to use in PSE, so in LR I sent them to PSE. Then I wanted to save them in PSE too. That is where my question comes... as I was trying to figure this out my DH said "Try the help file". HA! Help file! Why would I do that? SG is my help file!! :lol: So here I am at the best help file anywhere!

This is what I did in PSE with my LR image that I want to save:

Save as
Chose a folder
Tried to choose a format to save as (this is the question part) the options PSE gives me are:
Photoshop (PSD PDD)
Photoshop Project Format (PSD)
Photoshop PDF (PDF PDP)
Photshop Raw (RAW)

Which one do I pick? Jpeg isn't on the list, I thought I could save as a Jpeg.

If I click on save as TIFF
I get a whole new set of options:

Image compression
JPEG (this one is greyed out)

Pixel Order
Interleaved RGBRGB
Per Channel RRGGBB

I don't know what to do. I've only saved photos as jpegs. Can't get more basic than how to save an image!
I know I will LOVE LR, and it's going on my Christmas list, I just need to figure these little things out first, then move onto the fun stuff.

Thanks ladies!!!

I Need To Take More Pictures

I found this list online and I think I should print and keep it handy. It is a great jumping-off point, and it sparks my imagination to photograph more. I hope you like it too. :)
