Playing With Paint Shop Pro

My first photo program I bought was Paint Shop Pro, because if was affordable.   I purchased the upgrade 11 and played with it yesterday. 

The of new features I love, outstanding photo organization. Also something I have been looking for, each picture you can add photo information.  Many of my photos, I research information about the location, etc...finally a program that includes this feature.

Adjusting Levels Of My Previous Old Shed Photos

I was unhappy with my sepia and B&W versions of the my old shed photos. You all know my friend, Charlie Flatland Photos also my photography mentor for about three years, he was asked by another friend for help about levels. Charlie wrote a helpful tutorial using Photo Shop and cc me :).

I followed his suggestions and this is what I came up with. I like the way they turned out :).


The last leg of our Saturday's photo car trip we ended up in Danbury.  Inn at Danbury, is one our favorite places to eat Welcome to the Inn at Danbury! was having their Octoberfest. Beautiful weather, great food and music were a great ending to my photos shoot trip.

Apple and Pumpkin Picking, Certainly a Sign of Fall

Today I went out not sure what I would end up doing.  We went apple picking and spotted the most adorable baby boy picking out his pumpkin. Surowiec Farm. He saw me with the camera, his mom told me he thought I was going to take his photo....  With her permission, I took his photo and will email a copy to addition she is allowing me post his picture.  Thank you mom :).
