My brother Jem

By JuBarney
My dear brother passed away peacefully yesterday with his daughter beside him, sparing him from pain and suffering with dementia. I shall miss him. This photo was taken a few years ago at a wedding but he had grown attached to his beard stubble by then!

On the technical side I keep putting a frame around the photo in Photoshop but when I upload it the frame has disappeared. Any suggestions?

A lovely, natural and happy capture Ju....one to treasure. I'm so sorry for your loss. You never think at the time you're taking a photo, just how much it will mean to you one day...my Mum passed away this year and I have one picture of her in particular that she has such a lovely, natural smile in....like yours here, I treasure it so much out of all the pics I took of her. xx

It was sad reading your news this morning Ju, he and you were fortunate to have known each other.

Re borders I use an image viewer called Faststone and borders are infinitely easier to deal with than in Photoshop.

So sorry to hear about you brother Ju, dementia is such a cruel illness, because you loose the person when they get it,and they are still alive and then you loose them again when they die. Thinking of you. A great photo though.

So sorry to hear about your loss, a lovely photo to treasure. I'm sure you have many happy memories. Take care. With reference to your question about borders, sorry if this sounds too obvious but when you have added a border using layers do you make sure you flatten or merge the image before saving?

I don't use layers. I do: Control A; Edit - Stroke; (choose); Select - deselect; and Save

Like so many of your images, this conveys a delightful sense of vitality and warmth. It's a lovely tribute to your brother and I am so sorry to hear about your loss. With best wishes, take care, Graham.
I'm afraid I can't help with the borders; this is another thing I have to learn!

My sincere condolences too, Ju.

This picture celebrates a life lived: and death shall have no dominion, as Dylan Thomas wrote.

But we must all mourn the dear people we have lost.
