Default New gadget

I have a new item now that I can use to get my photos into Cruisemates Photo gallery without using a downsizer. I Now have a Panasonic, model DMC-ZS8. It has a downsizer program in it and It is now easy for me to post my good quality pictures in the galleries. Yea ho.

I put a few pictures of our Imagination cruise in the gallery for you to view if you wish.

I am not a very good photographer. I usually have to massage my pictures quite a bit before they are fit for public viewing!

I use the GIMP freeware graphics program and am slowly learning how it works. I can crop photos, flip them, adjust brightness, contrast and color balance, add text or circle certain parts, and of course then resize them so they fit email or his board.

I can even go so far as to cut a nice facial expression out of one photo and paste it into another one where somebody blinked or frowned!

Here is an example -- do you think I was really so fortunate as to be in the exact right place to catch the whale's tale as it dived? "All scenes, whether created or not, represent actual events ..."
