Learning Some New Tricks
I decided to try the web-based slideshow, which is a no brainer in FlickR before launching my free lance career. FlickR creates the slideshow after you designate the photos to include.
The editing tools are minimal and difficult to use, in my opinion, especially the "Rotate". Since I take pictures in portrait mode more than landscape mode, I frequently use this or similar tool. I have one photo that's been rotated left and right 270 degrees, 180 degrees, 90 degrees, so much it must be dizzy.
The photo of a red rose is soft-focus which gives it a dreamy quality. This was not intentional and I will later use it to create some kind of artsy thing in Photoshop. Sometimes you make a mess with macros when you spot meter for focus and light on the wrong spot! Such was the case.......
So the link below is my first effort of some photos you have already seen, for the most part. Click on link here.
