The photo was taken with my Droid, with a sepia setting.
I then searched for "free photo editing tools" and stumbled upon http://www.picnik.com/ I'd heard of it before, but had never used it. So, I then uploaded my photo to that site, played around with the cool tools and then re-saved it to my laptop.
This allowed me to call up my blog and then upload the edited version to this page.
My little lecture, sorry-inspirational message to you is this: there are many FREE user-friendly tools available out there. Don't let a lack of confidence or perceived lack of computer skills stop you from experimenting with what you can do. It just may open up a whole new colorful world. This was fun, and the gussied-up image at the top of this page is exactly what I was seeing in my head. Except that I left out a comma. And maybe a period. Uggh. Oh, well. It's poetry.
Now, if someone would please just tell me how I can spell-check these blog entries...
