Happy New Year to anyone who happens to read this. I can't believe it was June since I last made an entry!!
It amazes me that people still continue to view my blog, though no comments have been added. So I feel I need to add something worth reading if I am going to make an entry here.
So probably the best thing to describe is what I have been trying to develop with my photography since June. The quantum leap for me has been with moving from Powerpoint to CS3 as a means of presenting my photos for my monthly montages. This took a lot of working out and a big chunk of my summer holiday. I am thrilled to bits with the move as I lost so much detail when putting images into Powerpoint. (although I still find the automatic balancing and positioning of images so easy and more accurate in Powerpoint)
If you click http://www.ephotozine.com/u62244/gallery/1088983 you will see all twelve of my monthly garden montages through 2008
One of the aids in CS3 for this is the grid, which Dven pointed out to me and which I have taken upon myself to suggest to others who perhaps did not know about it for aligning multiple images.
So this entry will just focus on that as it is such a useful tool.
In CS3 go to View on the menu bar, Move down to Show, move across to grid and click. Up comes your grid, which can be removed by going back through that again and unclicking. I find its rather small for my eyes, so I enlarge the picture and just work with a section at a time. It has made such a difference in aligning my shots. Hopefully someone else reading this will find it helpful too.
Best wishes for 2009
