I got shot yesterday!
I’m speaking about photography, of course. There was a time when getting really good pictures required a 35mm camera, a lot of experience and a lot of money. Today you can get great shots with your cell phone! So … what do you do with all those great pictures once you have them?
To make sure those pictures look as good as they can, you need to edit them on your computer. One of the best programs available for this job is Picasa (http://picasa.google.com/), which is available for free from Google.
Picasa makes cropping, color correction, red eye removal, and a host of other common tasks a snap. Once you’ve edited your pictures, Picasa will even let you share them with the world. Uploading photos has been made extremely easy.
Once you have your pictures just the way you want them, it’s time to print. Printing is available at Sam’s Club, CostCo, Walmart, and a host of other stores. For those who are more interested in the online options, Shutterfly (www.shutterfly.com/) is one of the more popular destinations. With Shutterfly you can produce standard pictures, and you can also have your pictures printed in photo books, on cards and stationery, on coffee mugs, on mouse pads … the list goes on and on! Shutterfly also has a sharing option like Picasa, Google and a host of other sites. Another site called Snapfish (www.snapfish.com) has similar offerings to Shutterfly AND offers 50 free 4X6 prints with your first upload.
So, whether you’re taking pictures for printing or just sharing on-line, you don’t need to spend a ton of money on a fancy new camera. All you need to do is hang up and shoot!
