Now, even though I am a purist of sorts, I'm not at all adverse to these things. I just can't justify the money for something that I would rarely use.
And all that leads to my confession of being a snob.
Each time that I read about a new 'something' that someone is thrilled about on their gizmo (be it a phone or ipad), I check my old faithful program and, sure enough, I find something that I could use as comparable.
That program is a free download called photoscape.
As I recall, it was probably the very first free program that I downloaded and it seems to work well with my limited technical vocabulary. Having learned some of the phrases and terms that are used in such programs, subsequent downloads were still beyond my older-than-dirt mentality and I alway go back to my old faithful photoscape.
I don't do a lot of fidgeting with my photos, but I know that I could if I wanted to.
And I think that makes me a snob.....
Here are some pics that I had some fun with on photoscape
blurred except for rocks
all kinds of add ons
And, finally, proof that you can't believe everything you see on the internet...
And all this is just in the 'editor' portion. There a lot more stuff but I'll save that for another day!
