Well? How'd I do in my picture taking and editing? - Be honest!
This is BA's beautiful girlfriend E. I think I mentioned before that they had the prom to go to....but that is another post.
I just used this picture to experiment with in Lightroom. Yes, I now have three options for my picture editing. Photoshop Elements, Photoshop CS3, and Lightroom.
I previously has a huge mess of pictures all over the place on my computer and had so much trouble finding a particular picture I might want to use. I had so many folders that had sub-folders with sub-folders.
None of my pictures had a uniform naming system. Some might have the date, some with an actual 'title' where I had changed it, and some with DSCNXXXX, etc. that the camera would automatically enter.
This was driving me crazy! ...ok er - crazier!
I spent most of my day Sunday (in my PJ's, as previously stated) narrowing down and getting rid of most of all of my sub-folders.
Then my brother, Uncle B, helped walk me through Lightroom (LR) and now all of my pictures are in order (by yymmdd-hhmmss). Ah, it is beautiful.
So, this afternoon I have been playing with all the fun editing that LR has to offer. I also know that I will be searching for some tutorials to show me what all LR can do for me...but I love it so far.
I won't be giving up on my PS CS3 because it still has things to offer that I might not find in LR. I will just have to play with them both.
Just in case you noticed in my last post (at the very end, I went in today to have a minor surgery called an ablation. A few people I have talked to have said they no longer have that monthly visitor.
To have this procedure you have to be certain you no longer want to have any children as this is permanent. No problem for me, this old lady has already had her tubes tied.
Previously the procedure was typically performed as an out-patient surgery under anesthesia. If I have the option I would rather not be under anesthesia simply because of all the grogginess and slight nauseousness.
I had mine done in the office, with all kinds of drugs (of the prescription variety). I will be honest, it wasn't the most pleasant experience but I would definitely do it again...especially if I get to be one friend less every month (and the only friend I want to be rid of).
So, my obgyn and nurse did everything to make me as comfy as possible. I got anti-inflammatories, and pain meds and gave me a shot of Toradol while there. I could deal with all the prepping with no problems. There was pressure but nothing intolerable.
Then.....YOWZERS!! It did hurt a little (or maybe a LOT) when the tool suctioned my uterus out! On the plus side, since I have had kids I knew I could deal with it. The machine will not go over 2 minutes and mine was just under one. It will be SO worth it!
