Each day is a new adventure with my revised computer. Isn't it odd how we 'settle' into the format we have, learn to work with it and depend on it...just as it IS! And then someone(obviously an outsider)takes charge of our computers system...and nothing is ever the same again. Now, I'm a pretty old dog. And while I feel I was perfectly capable of learning ALL the new tricks...I have to admit it takes some getting used to. This new trick is challenging me each day....LOL. You need to know that I'm an "edit" freak, with my pictures. I've grown used to being able to 'crop', 'quick fix' and flip them around at will. But my Dell Image Expert is missing and I have Windows Pictures in it's place....ug!Here is a Friday morning(last week) picture just as dawn was breaking outside my door. And it's un-edited, un-cropped and un-inhanced! Because the computer isn't offering me those options.
The second picture, a few seconds later. My 1-2-3 testing today is to see what I get when I just publish them right out of the camera and the picture file. Double clicking on them takes me to a Paint Shop program, and that's dangerous....LOL I've never used paintshop in all the years I've had computers!
I will get this figured out...honest I will...at least I've gotten the computer to accept the camera with little to no effort...I know there is hope *VBS*
Last, but not least, the 'pint size pleasure crew'. They were here a couple of weeks ago and got a belated Christmas present from my oldest DS's family. Indoor hockey sticks,floor pucks and balls to bat around. Good for indoors and out...but NOT(inside) Gram's house!! I value the china cabinet glass doors. The 8 year old is a 'wild' one when given a ball. I insisted they use their new 'toys' at HOME! Works for me!
