Tweaking Picasa collages


Today Deb at Storybeader suggested that I thicken the lines between the photos I posted yesterday. So tonight I did just that and I think she made an excellent suggestion - what do you think?

I also changed the background grid coloring on both to more closely match the dominant color in the photos - I didn't realize how much sand was in the photos of Kemui!

See yesterday's post for the original collages - I saved these new ones in place of the original ones so couldn't post them side by side for viewing.

She made an excellent suggestion and they look great. I had to go back and look at the first ones you did to compare. I do like them with the thicker lines.

Thanks Ann, I like them better, too. I wish I had saved the second ones without erasing the first! but if you scroll back and forth you can really see the difference and I like it a lot better.

The new ones are better. It was a great suggestion!

These look great! They would make super reverse sides for business cards. Costs extra I know, but it would be really neat!

Those look just super! I didn't know about the line feature in the Picasa collage function--so thanks for that tip, too!

I love collages (and this one), and Picasa makes it so easy!

Brenda - I am giving a vinyl banner away too! Just look at the upper right hand corner of the blog. All of the giveaways are listed there.
Good luck!!!!

Split Rock Ranch said...

Pricilla - SQUEEEEE!!! Okay, I'm off to enter THAT giveaway, too!!! We have wanted to do a banner for years but after paying for hay, supplies, feed, etc., there just never seems to be enough left over. Okay, I'm off to enter... THANKS!!!

What gorgeous animals you have! Your collages are great - they will make great promo handouts for your farm!

I think she made a great suggestion although I would have never thought of it myself! Looks fabulous! I'll have to check out Picasa sometime.

It does make a huge difference and the color change was a wise choice also, looks great.

Excellent suggestions and good work. I do love the new ones even more than the originals.

NO WAY! I cannot wait until naptime today so that I can browse your site! Just popped in from SITS and your world is so different from mine--it'll be my little treat to fall away a little this afternoon. Your photos look gorgeous--and your Etsy store?! woo-hoo! what a treat!

Yep! I like the border suggestion.

Marlaine said...

Yes, the changes in the pics are great. But even better are the gorgeous critters!

I like the new version, too. It's funny how I never would have thought of doing that...but since she made the suggestion - and you followed it - it's like, "der! Why didn't I think of that??"!

Adorable pictures. What a sweet baby!

I hope all is well. I've been stopping in, just not saying much. :) xx
