Goodbye Picnik, Hello Picasa!

Standard

Even though Picasa is not new to the world, its new to me.  When Picnik emailed everyone telling them that they were closing up shop, I was a bit depressed.  I grew fond of Picnik and I really like its features.  So, I had to move on and dabble in Picasa.  Here is my first collage creation.  Please enjoy and feel free to add your constructive comments below.  Is it too busy?  Is it hard to process what these photos are?  Does your eye travel around the collage or stay at a fixed point?  I’d like to know what you think so I can improve.  Overall, I want to make a collage that presents my product professionally and clearly to anyone who is looking at it.

If YOU are a Picasa expert and have some tips to share, I’d love to hear about what you’ve learned in using this free online tool.  My first question, “Is there an upgrade option like Picnik where I can pay a fee and get more features?”

Sneak Peek of Coffee & Crafts, 11-27-11

Standard

A wonderful friend of mine, Katie Toohil of the Dallas Observer Blog, has kindly consented to be a guest blog contributor.  This time around (little does she know that she’s writing more than just one post, tee hee), she’ll be discussing and bringing deep analysis to the Coffee & Crafts get-together that commenced on the twenty-seventh of November in the year two thousand and eleven.  Here is a picture to “peek” your interest!  (By the way, Katie is the beauty sitting in the middle of the floor, posing for the picture unknowingly.  She’s just that talented folks!)

Some of the girls, sitting around and crafting it up!
