Okay, it all started out so innocently. I needed a cool website and couldn't afford to pay someone to do those great backgrounds and pics that all the authors have up. Some of them are just....WOW! So... I had to teach myself how to build a website. Then I realized I needed it to look good so I took my paint program, went and bought some stock photos, and began trying to make 'cool' photos so my author website didn't look like my kids put it together for me. LOL.
What's the problem? See the picture above? That's 5 pictures put together (6 if you include that one is flipped so it's in there twice for the background pic). I am addicted now to messing with stock photos I buy to create pictures. LOL. The night before last I found a cabin picture I loved so I bought it and then proceeded to spend an hour removing a person, fixing the roof, the yard to clean it up and add grass, and narrowing the driveway that was too wide. LOL. My husband is tempting me by telling me about really cool picture software. UH OH! Can you imagine what I'd do with something besides the paint program that came with my computer??? I'm afraid! LOL. And I'm still not happy with the picture above. I want a clearer woman. She kind of looks blurry to me because I had to downsize her. Not that I can do much better with a simple paint program but if the hubby buys me the expensive picture program... watch out. I may never find the time to write! LOL.
So... my name is Laurann and I have a problem... I'm addicted to screwing with stock photos! LOL.
