Make your own watermark for photos shared online
Even if you never intend to make a living by selling your photos, photos do have a way of meandering around the Internet. Most people will take the time to give you credit for them, but inevitably some will forget to. Adding a watermark to your photos before posting them is an easy way to ensure that your photos at least will always remember where they came from.
This week, I stumbled across a how-to from a talented photoblogger, DaenelT at Living Outside the Stacks, on how to use PicMonkey to create an easy watermark for photos shared online.
Naturally I tested out her instructions, and am feeling pretty darn proud of the result:
If I can do it, you can too, so hop to it.
Best use of Twitter ever?
For a very long time, ever since first signing up for Twitter two years ago in fact, I’ve been struggling to wrap my mind about what exactly it is that Twitter offers someone like me. Yes, yes, I’ve read tons of articles about how writers can make the most of Twitter, but clearly I’ve not tuned my incoming Twitter feed properly yet, because Twitter still seems like a place where everyone talks and very few people listen.
Every once in a while, though, I come across something simply brilliant, like Erin Faulk’s (@erinscafe) story of how she found Matt Damon in Morocco. And no, the fact that I found this Twitter-tale via Slate and not Twitter itself is not lost on me.
Finally, my favorite piece of Papal Resignation Trivia:
In resigning his office as pope yesterday, His Holiness Benedict XVI also resigned his red leather shoes (rumored to be Prada), exchanging them for a pair of brown leather shoes made in Mexico.
