I Got A Great New Toy Today

By
Real Estate Agent with Evers & Company Real Estate, Inc. AB95346

This afternoon, I had to got to The Apple Store to have one of their young geniouses tweek my I-Phone.  While I was waiting I played with the new I-Pad, and when I couldn't comment on a blog buddy's post, I moved on. 

Now, it's almost impossible for me to walk into an Apple Store without buying something, and then I saw it! 

I'd heard about Aperture 3, which is the better-than-IPhoto picture editing app for Mac. 

It'll take a while to figure it out, but after I installed it on my computers, I started to fool with this photo of Willie the Labradoodle.

It started like this:

Then I fooled with it and it turned into this

Then this:

And then:

Looking at these next to one another, it's not like one is better than the other.  But as I figure Aperture out, they might be.  It's just one more fun tool to make my dog and my listings look better.

Willie likes the second to the last the best, too! 

And I do love Apple Stores!  They have a great energy level, and they always seem to be busy.

Hi Patricia,

Ah, it sounds like you have Apple-itis for sure!  It makes it easy to shop when you're happy with just one brand.

Aloha & best wishes.

With all this advanced technology, I don't think the banks will allow for me to take out a 3rd mortgage, as we can get into a buying frenzy ;<)

Hi Pat... I don't think that Willie requires photo image enhancement.  He looks perfect in his natural state!

I think my favorited photo editing tool is always the sharpness, regardless of the program. I seem to be addicted to sharpening everything! lol

It is hard for me to walk into an Apple outlet and not walk out with something too. That is why I stay away - LOL...

Computers.  Pets.

They pretty much the same roll for a lot of us.

Pat-step away from the Apple store.  Leave poor Willie alone.  He has enough issues already without being cropped and manipulated in a photo editing program :-)

What did you think about the IPad?  I am hearing mixed reviews.  BTW, sweet doggie!

Patricia - Your dog is adorable!  I haven't had my hands on an I Pad yet, but getting closer!  The great fun about photography is the tinkering and exploring!
