I found this post by Craig Daniels and if you are using Picasa photo editing program? This a must see, he is up to his 9th lesson and I am trying to catch up. It is very helpful.I use two lap tops, so I can read and apply it at the same time. I like how he tells you in detail, every step. Take a look. It realy is a help if you are using Picasa.
Yesterday's post was on working with Picnik to create your HD Profile Photo. Picnik is a web-based app (nothing to download) and the online cousin to the Picasa application. Picasa is another one of those amazing things produced by Google (so is Picnik for that matter). Picasa is totally free to download and install. This is in my "must-have" toolset on my computer and after you work with it, it quite likely will be also for you. In the real estate world of photography, there is a long list of practical uses! It constantly amazes me the power and simplicity of the application. For MOST OF my day to day stuff, I don't need to head to Photoshop at all. (I save that for the more complicated things only)
If you need to download Picasa now as a head start to my upcoming blog series, you can get it here.
Here is a list of things that I do in Picasa and if you follow my blog I'll teach you to also!
