Photo manipulafun

I've been asked many times about what software should they use to make pictures pretty. Either because they just bought themselves a new Camera, or they spotted a HUMONGOUS MONTROUS Zit on their picture tagged on facebook.

Either way. So far there are 3 programs I personally liked and have used before to
"make pictures.... and you pretty...."

(1) Paint Shop Pro. by Jascs

it was the software I first started meddling with when I was a young newbie back in early high school. Very easy to use, and it's filled with cool features that's prepared with it's presets.
The latest version should be photo X2, I think..

(2) The GIMP

this is Free. perhaps the best free photo editing software out there. it has a surprisingly good amount of features for photo manipulation and editing. what's better than FREE is, it's under the general public license, that means it's like Rapid KL only better.

(3) Photoshop

latest version is Photoshop CS4. If you have the interest and time, take up a few Tutorials and classes from your friends. it has a steeper learning curve and is filled with tricks up it's own sleeves. the possibilities are limited only by your creativity.
Known to be the most effective way to remove that humongous Zit. of yours.

On other news

It was a surprising morning when I received an email. that I took 2nd place for a Photo manipulation contest, hosted by listed here

now I can start charging people for photoshop training.

The new New blog theme

Ok I quit horsing around. finally got this decent looking template up. it's only time for me to add something nice to the header at the top here.

Blogger doesn't seem to have a twitter widget perhaps I might just make myself a twitter widget using flash from scratch.

So I've been working on this blog with my own Domain address. and using a blogging software which bestow upon me the ultimate control.

I need your help. I need Ideas and suggestions. I need stimulants to improve on this draft. as shown above.

the glory of XML.

I'm finally going to dive into XML. That scary markup language. that kept me wondering what it does since I was 16.

Now that my Action scripting skills have developed and matured in an immature way.. it's time to move on.

would love it if anyone. who has experience with XML. befriend this poor soul in his captivated life of the bloody world wide web.

just add my email address. or leave a comment. would love to have a chat with the experienced.
