WordPress is really messed up right now. Alas, I’ll keep trying to work here but maybe WordPress is trying to get rid of me?…………

Today’s Friday Flower Fiesta pictures will be part of my Photographic Art collection, which means they will be for sale shortly. Of course, they will be significantly Photoshopped compared to the pictures below.

To see exactly what Photographic Art is, click on Photographic Art Introduction, which is a temporary PDF eBook.

To see the workings of my first catalog, temporarily available at My Wise Old Grandmother’s web site, click on Photographic Art Catalog. A completed version will be available Monday Morning.

Both are temporary because I’m looking for an eBook creator that, when the file is open, is sized to fit the screen. Right now, you have to click on the minus sign several times to get a page to fit on the screen. That’s irritating.

Nonetheless, sit back with your cup of coffee or hot chocolate and enjoy a collection of beautiful flowers.

      Photoshop! All of my friends whose pictures are way, way better than mine also are way, way better at Photoshop, too. Just when I think I have caught up with them, they find something new in Photoshop to show me……….lol

          Many decades ago all of us photographers worked in our darkrooms. We used different chemicals, different papers, different filters…. We dodged and we burned. Now, instead of a stinky room in our homes, we just sit at the computer and do all of our processing. There’s a reason why Adobe named one of their products “Lightroom.”…….. lol

      Thanks. It will be more impressive if I can get Adobe’s products (Photoshop, Acrobat, and Reader) working again. They all went kaput yesterday when I let Photoshop update itself. Bad, bad decision on my part. I know better……… :(

          I have Reader working again and just did my Reader update but I haven’t attempted to use Reader since. Who knows what problems I might run into? I need Acrobat and Photoshop working more than I need Reader.

    Please forgive my ignorance – why would these pictures need to be “significantly Photoshopped” before they could be sold? They look beautiful.

      They are beautiful, which is why I featured them in this Friday Flower Fiesta. However, if you were to compare them to a professional photographer who gets hundreds or thousands of dollars per photograph, you would understand why these do not compare as photographs. Thus, in order to sell them, I need to do away with the competition, which is what Photographic Art does. No one is creating Photographic Art exactly like mine. But a great picture of a flower has thousands, if not millions, of competitors.
