A New Hobby & Passion Ignited

I LOVE photography and it's a hobby that I'm trying to refine every day. I'm also fascinated by the art of Editing and decided to try my hand at it. I started with the program that's on my computer (Microsoft Office Photo Manager), you know, since Photoshop is for PROS and costs an arm and a leg! After editing a few, I posted some on my Facebook. Some friends informed me of some free on-line editing so I'm trying those out as well.

If you like Photoshop, GIMP is a free download that is VERY similar to it.

Then there's Picnik, VERY user friendly and with one click of a button, your photo is changed...you can also combine different effects to get the picture just like you want it! Below are some of my creations...I don't have any from GIMP yet because I need to watch the tutorial first :-)
These were edited with Picnik

























These were done with Microsoft Office Photo Manager
