I have figured out how to fiddle with photos on my computer. Although I didn’t save the “originals” so that you could see than changes–we don’t have enough disk space. I got my inspiration to sally forth into the land of photo messin’ from Stephanie (who told me I could LONG ago) and Pioneer Woman (who holds amazing tutorials on her website. . .along with some cardiac arrest inducing recipes and a great love story about the whirlwind romance of she and her husband that will remind you of how the butterflies felt–seriously, y’all, I love and adore my husband. . .and from time to time I am caught off guard by his incredibly blue eyes and broad shoulders and get a little “elevator in the gut” feeling. . .but this story is an EXTREME reminder of how those first date/new love butterflies felt. I got goosebumps. All the posts are at the link. Start at the bottom and work your way up.)
All that to say that I have enjoyed fiddling with the color balance and brightness and contrast on some REALLY bad photos I took with the digital camera that is at my school. The photos were seriously dark–not my fault–so I waded and in and fiddled and fiddled and came out with some still bad photos–but at least you can identify faces in them. The reason I have them is because I am in charge of making 5 power point lessons on Service for our advisory classes at school. I am focusing on all the adults in our building that serve us. . .and how. . .and what the kids can do to serve them. Hence, the following photos.
The photo of my husband I could not find when I wrote THIS post. . .
And now I’ve spent way too much of Gumption’s time sitting here fiddling some more. . .but it was fun!
