WOW! You guys RAWK!! ...THANK YOU so much for the warm welcomes! As you can see by the time (4pmCST), I try not to run to my emails first thing in the morning cos then I can't manage to tear myself away to get anythin' else done! *heehee*
I've read through some of the old oooold posts and got TONS and TONS of info! OMG!! Did I say TONS!? I love that no one is embarrassed to ask any kinda question...I'm wunna those! My momma always says "no hay pregunta que sea estupida, nomas la que no preguntes!" *LOL* ok..ok, I'll translate = "there is no stupid question, except the one that you don't ask!"
Ms. Amie, no worries, I appreciate you already...I know YOU're the WOah-MANg to see about important stuffs! *yeah, I been readin' up* You're correct on the right click thang. I realize that when there's a will, they'll make a way. I can live with that. However, when I first began with digital images/camera I had NO idea what the heck I was doing (not that it's gotten any better either) lol. ...seriously! Many *like 50%+* of my fotos are 640x480, so I'm considering putting them in as ACEOs only...what do you think/suggest? Of course, the best way to distort them is to enlarge them...LOL!
Ok, I couldn't remember where I had seen the instructions to upload to a gallery that was of "works in progress" that wasn't public just yet. Thanks for that info! Is the portfolio for works that are, and are NOT, for sale? Sounds goofy now that I'm reading the question, but hey, better to ask than not! *grinz* I could separate them into two folders...suggestions?
Now that I'm all giddy with my new friends, I'll warn you that I'm awful about connecting names with user ids [and many times faces]. I say that, because sometimes I don't think your name fits you and I have to work hard to connect you. I'm not that "virtual" *lol* I'm a people person IN PERSON...heh heh...that's my story and I'm stickin' to it! *giggles* I'm excited to see the blogs as well. I only wish that they were all in one place. Is there a place to blog here?
Heide: love your handle *smiles* how I love your *ahem* "country"...as your great [and most intelligent] govenator would say khaLEEforniAH iz vunderfull. I loveLOVElove the scenery! My sister lived in Monterey for eight years! That area looks like a piece of Europe was dropped there accidentally! lol...you know what I mean. I'm in awe with the flowers and bugs I saw while running around in Carmel.
Amanda: ...checked you out on ETSY and love your jewelry...very kewl and would love to see more! *I have a problem with jewelry...it always finds my wallet*
Donna: it was your entry into the Think Pink Show here that inspired me to really consider entering something!
Christi: omg GREAT abstracts! Abstracts seem to give so much movement and genuine expression of emotion than anything, although that's not necessarily true for everyone, but it is for me. oooh gurrrrrrrlfrieeeend NINE chee-who-ah-who-ahhs!!! I know they ARE adorable! I have a rat terrier and a labbe (designer doggie: 1/2 black lab & 1/2 beagle).
Carolyn: wow..some reeeally KEWL digital art ya got thar!!! I haven't quite figured out PS. Maybe cos I don't have it!? LOL...I have "PhotoImpression4" (pseudo PS) and I thought IT was da bomb!!! *pffft* I'm not a techie either...and what it's taken me to adjust to digital...ugh, let's not eeeven go there! *lmao*
Please know that I gladly/happily/desperately want and accept/absorb constructive criticism! I need all the help I can git! THANK YOU, again, for all of your help and guidance!
