I’m playing around with graphics on my new computer—still navigating and loading old and new software. So we had an old Photoshop Elements 3.0 cd—when Elements is now up to version 14. Ha!—that is new to me, and I wasn’t sure if it would work with Windows 10 OS. But it seems to. Whew! Though I notice some color matching differences between what a picture looks like in my Photoshop and what it looks like online. So I might be tweaking my blog header which now seems to have a greenish cast to it. Ha!
And I got my printer driver hooked up today. Yay! So though I don’t have my data files transferred over yet—baby steps—here is my first Richard Armitage graphic that I made with my new computer:
Richard Armitage Most Wanted: Charmed & Dangerous
I made this wallpaper using a background graphic image from HP Creations and an EsquireUK December 2013 photo shoot portrait of the exquisitely talented British actor Richard Armitage –*purrrr*–courtesy of the wonderful Richard Armitage news and photo resources at RANet ( www.RichardArmitageNet.com )!
Then I imported the completed wallpaper image from HP Creations via screen shot pasted into MS Word. And then finally, I copied the graphic to Photoshop from there. Yeah, I know, it is not as direct a method as I would like. But HP Creations now let’s you only “create” graphics, but you can’t export them until you pay for the upgrade. And I’m cheap. And I’m still learning out to work the software here on my new computer without adding yet another new software to the growing mix. Ha! But remember, I bought my “new” computer on sale at a deep discount as a XMAS return. So my computer didn’t come with a box, how to manuals, nor even a keyboard—which I rectified for $13. So I’ll have to hunt for online versions of the computer and Windows 10OS manuals. But so far, the computer and Win10 seem pretty intuitive—and I’m loving it! And it has a 64 bit processor. And I’ll have to try my hand at making gifs—once I review bccmee’s Gif tutorials.
So, my RA wallpaper above is simple, but hopefully cheerful and warming for a new work week Monday after the East Coast of the U.S. had a mountainous weather storm of a blizzard to contend with. *brrrr* Have a gReAt week! Cheers!
