picasa vs photoshop element

edited using picasa

edited using photoshop elements for the first time


I'm thinking I prefer the edited version using picasa. BUT I've had more experience with picasa....photoshop is going to take some time getting used to!


The top photo is edited using photoshop element (my first time, playing around)
The bottom photo is unedited using my new 50mm!!

What do you think???

Please check out this website of what this beautiful little girl is going through...PRAYFORKATE
I stumbled across this from a blog that I follow.  I read her story and it cut me to the core.  Right now in my life I feel as though I am going through one of the hardest times with my little Emma, due to behavioral issues we are having with her. Well Kate's story definitely humbled me. I would rather deal with behavioral issues any day compared to the heartache and stress that Kate's mother Holly is dealing with. Please keep little Kate in your prayers!  Pass along this website so others can keep her in their prayers also.
Thank you.

Kate's family and story will be aired on Dr. Phil on Dec. 2nd

Watermarks part 2.....

Here are some more options....
~same pic, different watermark attempts


I think this one above is my favorite at this point!!!

Playing around with different placement, color, fonts...... any advice on where to place the watermark in different photos?  How do you save it as a watermark so I can just add it to my pics as one piece.  I did this in picasa just writing text on a pic.  ADVICE please!!!!!!!!!  I'm sure this is taught in a photo class or workshop....I SOOO need to do!!!!  It's on my list of TO DOs!!!!!!
