Learning New Systems

playing with close-up feature with new camera & plant at office

I hate learning new systems. I was quite comfortable with uploading and editing my pictures from the old camera. Now I have this new camera, which I love, but the new software and photo editing process are befuddling me. I usually hate reading directions, for example. I had to force myself to read the instruction booklet that came with the camera. I just want to start using it. Why should I have to READ first??

So we finally got these new photos uploaded, but I can't figure out how to crop my pictures. The quilt picture, for example, has way too much closet door. I would crop it down to focus just on the quilt if I could figure out how. Hopefully I'll figure it out soon.

quilt by Jackie from my guild; I sent it to Rosebud

As for yesterday's post about Grandmothers, wow... I never expected to get such thoughtful and long comments! That was cool! I'm going to read them again and think about them later. Yesterday I worked ALL DAY, plus some overtime hours, then had a meeting at church, so I didn't get home 'til 9 p.m. and was too tired to think.

Are you up and running at home yet?

What kind of camera did you get? How did you choose it?

Am up and running. But I don't have all the possibilities mastered yet. I got a Nikon Coolpix P80. I chose it mainly because I had an inexplicable fondness for it right away in the store. And because it is a Nikon, which I already was using, so I thought the software would be easy to understand. Ha! That was only a tiny bit true. (And also, it was a bit spendy, but we found it cheaper at Tiger Direct, and hubby said Go For It!)
