First Photo from New Camera


AgaveHeart, originally uploaded by carolsLittleWorld.

Greetings, Snowflakes! Queen flake (that would be me, in case you weren't paying attention) has just completed her Photoshop upgrade and can now safely upload shots from her spiffy new camera. Well, ok, maybe it's not so spiffy, it's just sort of a camera, but...like...you get the idea. It's new photos from new camera time.

This one was taken on one of my many trips over to the Hill Country Water Gardens. It's a close up (detail) view of one of the plants they have there. This is shot number 2 from my new camera (the first one will be uploaded at a later time.)

Since I'm now uploading photos from the new camera, I can now tell you that this means I'm also running Adobe Photoshop CS5. And, as if all of that new stuff were not enough, CraftyGuy has been teaching me some new teenage lingo so now I can say CS5 is the shizz or, as he so eloquently put it, "it's all that and a bag of chips."

Of course, when I first loaded CS5 it did what all Adobe apps do right out of the box. It crashed. Oh, and it wouldn't open my files. Lovely. I just love computer programmers, they #$%^ things up before they get them right. But, fear not, not to worry and all, I managed to run the super secret upgrade program and arm wrestle CS5 into recognizing my camera RAW file format. Yay! Score one for Canon. I mean, um, yeah, Canon wins that battle this time. (They screw up so many other things, we should just quietly let them have this little victory, shouldn't we?)

Still getting used to the Adobe Camera RAW new format and the spiffy new camera RAW editor/viewer program. It's got all kinds of new slider thingies and lots of little buttons and do-dahs. Oh, this is going to be fun, I already like it, even though I don't know what's in it or how to use it. Yes, I know. I'm easily amused.

Next up, Carol tries to use her printer. Oh, right. Now, how many of you out in Internet lands think that's going to go just swimmingly? Yeah, if you believe that, I've got a bridge to sell you and, the bridge? It's all that and a bag of chips really.

Until next time...
