Self Portrait

Mommy's new Computer has enough memory for her to install Corel Paint Shop Pro X, which she really likes a lot. She is finally learning to photo shop and do interesting things to pictures. Hopefully the next time our friends have a party or go on an adventure Mommy will be able to help with the photographs. We wants to thank all our friends for making pretty pictures for us and dressing us and taking us on adventures.

We also want to tell our friends that having the right software program makes a lot of difference. Mommy tried some of the "free" photo shop programs and they were harder to navigate.  Corel is pretty intuitive for her although she still has a lot to learn. It came with our scanner, but we didn't have enough memory to install it on the old computer, so it has been on a disk collecting dust until now.

Oh, Mommy doesn't usually look like this. She was making sure the scanner worked and she scanned a picture in that was taken a zillion years ago at a Halloween Party.  Her hair is salt & pepper now and she has a zillion more wrinkles. ~AFSS

  1. That is a very beautiful photo of your Mom. We can't wait to see what she can do now with that paint program.

    A thunder shirt probably isn't an option for Phantom after the horrible reaction he had when he had to wear his t-shirts after that ugly surgery. Mom has thought about trying one, but he would have to wear it for so many days pre-storm. It might be a better option for Ciara if we can't get her to stop minding the storms. Thanks for the suggestions.

    Woos ~ Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

  8. Pretty Mom you have. Mumsy has Photo Shop but she just cannot figure out some of what it does. She can do simple basic things but that is about it. Glad your mom is enjoying the program and we are looking forward to seeing all the cool things she does with pictures. Hugs and nose kisses

  11. The only thing Mommy has tried is Gimp (she couldn't get it to work, she should have probably read the instructions) IfanView (which she likes for combining photo's she can't figure out how to do it in Coral Paint) and Coral Paint Shop Pro X (which makes Photoshopping photos simple, but can be aggravating at times.

  13. That is a very nice picture of your mom! Maybe we should send our mom to your house so your mom can teach her how to do photoshop and stuff like that. We're still waiting for her to learn it.
