Posterize Photographs Using Picasa 3
Posterize your Memories
I've used the Picasa 3 program for several years now and love it. It was a free download from Google. The program is easy to use and full of excellent image processing features to make photos look great! One of my favorites is "Posterize" highlighted in this hub.
With only a point and click my photographs are instantly transformed into vibrant and creative posters. The effects vary from dramatic to playful depending on the content and colors in the original photograph. I highly recommend giving it a try if you're into digital photography and enjoy trying a variety of image processing venues.

Pantry Darkroom to Digital Photography
To take the photos in this hub I used a Cannon Power Shot SD1200 IS DIGITAL ELPH. The majority of the photographs I've taken with it the colors, focus and details are picked up with each shot. Bottom line, it works for me. Its also a small enough camera to easily slip into my purse or pocket.
Initially I wasn't sure I'd like digital photography because I was used to taking the majority of my photos with an Olympus OM1. Shooting a lot of black and white film was the norm when I was in college taking photography courses and fulfilling class assignments. I'd develop the film in a make shift dark room I set up in the pantry of my Boston flat or at the school photo lab.
My past education and darkroom experience has made me even more appreciative of the advances in photography. I still have my Olympus and may pick it up again one day. For now the Cannon Power Shot is my go to camera for everyday photography.
