As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, Motor Man and I went to the Outer Banks Saturday and drove up on the beach at Carova.
It’s a habit of mine to always take a picture of the beach as we’re riding along. Today, I’m sharing the picture I took Saturday, but I’m also showing you how one little mouse click can change a photo.
My camera is capable of doing SO much more than I currently do with it. And, perhaps one day, I’ll learn what all those settings mean. But, in the meantime, I have a secret weapon that I sometimes use to spice up a picture.
This was the original picture I took Saturday:
The photo software program I use is Picassa, a free download. And there’s a magic icon on Picassa called “I’m Feeling Lucky”. This is what happens to the above picture when I click that option:
I hestitated to share this, not wanting my readers to think that I use this on all my photos. The changes made using “I’m Feeling Lucky” are frequently a little too dramatic. Personally, I feel this edited photo is a bit over the top.
Thankfully, the automatic setting on our camera seems sufficient for most of the photos that I take…..until I learn how to really use it.
