New Laptop

Jeremy and I have been talking for a while about getting a new laptop for me because I have been editing my photos on the desktop and it hasn’t been all that reliable lately. In fact, we haven’t been able to even get onto the desktop for a few weeks. The little laptop that I had been using for internet usage and other small things wasn’t capable of doing the jobs I needed for my photography.

Last Saturday, we headed out to the Apple Store (where I immediately had a panic attack… way too many people for my comfort level) and got a Macbook for me. I know… I pull away from most of the internet, but still go get a new laptop. I downloaded a trial version of Aperture to try it out for my photo editing. So far, I’m liking it. I had a bunch of photos I took for a friend at her daughter’s birthday party and I hated that it took me so long to get the photos done and up. Now I can make her a disc with the pictures also. I found that it will upload to Flickr and FB for me without me having to get on the actual sites. That helps me to keep from the temptation of staying on FB once my pictures are uploaded.

Anyway, I thought I’d share that.

I love writing on my blog. I’m thinking that with less time on FB, I may write more on here. It gets pulled over to FB anyway. I mean really… look at this… I’ve written something two days in a row so far. I haven’t done that in a very long time.

  1. I want something comparable to what I’ve been using to edit my pictures with special effects. Like how I will have a flower with it’s color and then the rest of the picture black and white or other things like that. I know Picasa can’t do those things. It’s just a basic editor. After a few days of playing with Aperture, I found that though they say it can do what I want, it was kind of difficult to figure out. Now I’m trying out a trial version of PS Elements. If I’m not happy with that, I may just go back to Gimp. We’ll see.
