Over the next day or two… or longer, if the crack squirrels that live in my head decide it should be so… we are going to have some fun with filters. I know, everybody says I have no filters. But you probably do. And if you don’t, I can tell you where to get some… for free… and they are easy to use, and will make your blog art pop.
Also, I will tell you, step-by-step, how to do all this stuff.
To begin with, I am using a picture of the little girl I babysit. Yes, it is my buddy, Olivia, the daughter of some friends of ours. And yes, I supplement my meager income from a part-time job as an apartment manager by doing some babysitting. I even undercut my competition… teenage girls… by charging only ten dollars an hour, which, I think, is below the actual minimum wage. Hey, don’t judge me, selling my books isn’t making me rich.
I chose this photo, left over from my daughter’s high school graduation party the other day, because it is just a normal photo of a cute kid. I didn’t do anything special with it, except to save it at 72 DPI and eight inches tall. Don’t worry about any of that if you don’t know how to resize an image, but the stuff I am going to teach you works better if the picture isn’t a huge file, that’s all I’m saying.
Okay, get ready for some fun.
See you soon.
