And again with TEXT from Pixlr (android app) on Windows

Image via Tumblr

So I uploaded the previous pic (see below) into the Android version of Pixlr (on Windows via AndY), which has a really nice assortment of free, downloadable fonts. This saves time and hassle, not having to install extra fonts for other Windows-based image editors.

Slight color degradation from the original, caused by uploading and working on an already crunched jpg. But I’m just goofing around, anyhow. 🙂

Prisma (android app) on Windows…

Image via Tumblr

Here’s an interesting twist on a pic I took Sunday night. The photo itself is unexceptional. A 12x zoom of a statue high up in St. Mike’s Cathedral.

Recently, however, I discovered the Prisma app for Android. This time I fixed it on my Windows computer, running Prisma via AndY, which is a virtual Android emulator.

If your computer has Intel VT in its bios, Andy is worth checking out. I like it far better than BlueStacks, which is another android emulator I’ve tried.

I cropped and fixed this thru a TV instead of a computer monitor. So I’m not 100% sure about the color. But I do like the way it came out. Taken last night at Sunday evening Mass.

Analog Phasers

Here’s a funny one from my past. The pic was taken sometime in the 1970s. I used to ski at this place almost every winter weekend, and during March Break.

I was also a huge Trek fan, back when there was only one Trek, and maybe the cartoon. So here’s my childhood attempt to add some FX. I remember so well getting out the felt-tipped markers and using either a ruler or tape for the straight line. Probably a ruler as tape would have damaged the slide. But it was a long time ago and I’m not sure.

Cold Season

Image – MaxPixel

The past few days I’ve been under the weather so doing a bare minimum at Earthpages. But my time hasn’t been wasted. I tried out Linux again. And again decided that with my older hardware, I still prefer Windows.

Also been updating, reconfiguring all my old computer stuff into a new synthesis that inspires me to work. Latest addition which I like is Libre Office.

I tried it out years ago and didn’t like it. But this time around it’s great. I feel a bit like a French social worker using it… although they probably all use the most expensive corporate stuff they can get their hands on.

So I’m working on an entry for earthpages.ca today. Been a while. I even considered pulling the plug on Earthpages altogether.

I get that way every now and then when I feel like I’m getting nowhere or just blowing lots of hot air.

Libre Office – image tweaked at pixlr.com

This new entry is going to be more raw and realistic. It’ll probably take a while. Still lots of sniffles and I’ll have to sleep this cold off.

But just wanted to say I’m still here… 🙂
