Picasa

For those of you who enjoy photography and don't have money to buy an expensive editing program, Picasa is an awesome free program they offer on line. Go to Google and then type in Picasa and you will find it. The newest version has a retouch button that helps you edit things out of the picture. It's not the best but for a free soft ware program it's a dream come true. I have sooooooooo many pictures that have something in them like a power line or something on my lens that shows up in the picture. My friend Sarah was the one who told me about the retouch button. It took me a while to figure it out and now, I got it down...at least I think. haha But I just wanted to share two pictures with you.

The power line that is really faint in this picture drove me NUTS! I was SOOOO happy to get it out of my picture! Here's another one with power lines that drove me crazy!

AND last but not least, I had crap on my lens in this picture. If you look just to the right of the center of the picture you can see it. I LOVE this picture too and the crap on the lens drove me absolutely insane! Here is the before and after for this one too

THANKS AGAIN SARAH! I would have never even noticed the new retouch button if you hadn't of said something! WOO HOO

I found your blog while on some random search and the title of your post caught my attention. I love Picasa and use it to sort/organize my pictures. When the new version 3 came out there is a movie feature that I used to make a picture slideshow to music. My family loved it. I'm in Texas too!

You're an official retouching expert! I love the before and afters.
