Back in the days of film photography, my wise old grandmother would bring a bunch of photographs home from the drug store, sit down at the dining room table, and go to town identifying the photographs and placing them carefully in her many scrapbooks and photo albums using photo corners. I do believe she had the greatest collection of photo corners in the world. I know she had corners in clear, white, gold, and black.
If something new came along, she was the first to buy it and try it. I remember when she discovered rubber cement. All her packages of photo corners were sold at her next garage sale. (Smile if you used to have fun rummaging around at neighborhood garage sales instead of today’s monster flea markets and swap meets.)
Even with digital photography, though, some people (me for example) still like photo corners. Here’s Zoey the Cool Cat demonstrating the photo corners that I have been using over the past couple of years:
You can get those photo corners via an Action in Photoshop. Takes all of one keyboard shortcut and about two seconds of time.
Recently I learned of some new photo corner Actions by PanosFX.com. The email they sent me, which was captured in my spam folder, showed some pretty cool photo corner Actions, so I went to their site to see if they had a free trial download, which they do. Unfortunately, the free trial software has only one photo corner Action whereas the full version has over 50 photo corner Actions. Here is Zoey the Cool Cat, again, demonstrating the one photo corner Action in the free version:
I believe my wise old grandmother would have loved the world of digital photography and photoshopping.
The full version of these “photo slit” Actions by PanosFX.com costs 10.90 Euros. According to Google, 1 Euro equals 1.37 U.S. dollars, so 10.90 Euros equates to $14.97. I believe I can afford that.
PanosFX.com has a lot of other software, too, that allows you to make puzzles, cubes, and postage stamps complete with postmarks and envelopes. Hmmm. Postage stamps complete with postmarks and envelopes. Hmmm. Well, heck. I think I can afford that, too, since it’s only 7.90 Euros.
Long-time readers know that I love postage stamps. Here’s Zoey the Cool Cat (yet one more time) demonstrating my postage stamp frame:
I was so proud of my postage stamp frame, but now that I know that someone has gone a step further and created postmarks and envelopes in addition to postage stamps, I’m sad and depressed.
Maybe I should just buy their whole bundle collection of 12 software collections for just 65.90 Euros. That’s $90.52. Hmmmm. I might have to wait until after today’s 12:00 noon home inspection before I can afford the complete bundle……………..lol
Anyway, go check out PanosFX.com to see all the wonderful stuff they have. You might find something you like for a price you can afford.
