PHOTO EDITING

 

Most of the time, the Blogs that I Post are about something with History in mind.  This time I’m going to start trying something different to Post about instead of something Historical.

I’ve noticed over time that allot of you out there Post a Image of what you want your readers to see.  I’m the same way.  However, before you Post your Image you probably have to edit the Image in one way or another to make it look much better than what your camera has taken.  There are times, when you don’t have to edit anything.  Your Image is just right for what you want.

I use 3 different Photo Editing Programs.  The one I use most is Lightroom 5.  I like it quite allot.  The other’s are Paint Shop Pro X7 and a Program called Picasa.  Both work very well, but can not do some things that Lightroom 5 can do.  It depends on what I want to do with my Image and that decides which program I use.

Lightroom 5 is a real good photo editing program, but a little on the complicated side for me.  I still have not gotten used to using all the different functions it can do.  At times it frustrates me, to the point that I don’t know how to to what I want.  Understanding things like using Layers and Watermarking have me trying to do it.  I have watched a number of “Tuts” on how to do things, but it’s a bit hard to watch something and then try and remember what you were told to do.  There have been a number of times that I would like to add something to my Images, but don’t know how.  An example would be adding a Canal Boat to some of my Canal Images to show how it might have looked back then.  I know it can be done, but how?

Paint Shop Pro X7 is much the same way.  I seem to be able to use PSPX7 better than Lightroom, but not much.  I just keep doing what I know how to do and learn as I go along.

I’m sure that you have, maybe, a different type of Photo Editing Software.  There are so many different one’s out there on the market.  Which one do you use?  How do you learn to use it?

Thanks for reading.

GUN BATTERY FROM WWII

 

IMGP1948

While visiting Kings Wharf in the Bermuda Islands there was what is left over from WWII.  This Gun emplacement was ment to guard the islands and the Port of Kings Wharf from the Japanese.  Just what size the Gun Battery is, I don’t know.

IMGP1949 

Here’s another view of the Battery.  The weather on this day was just terrible.  It was raining, windy, and on the foggy side.  Not usual weather for this area.  Normally, it’s sunny and warm.  We must have hit a bad time.

Thanks for the visit.
