I admit it ... I don't have a really wide-angle lens - I use the 18-55 mm lens that came with my Nikon D60.  But I still need PTLens ... why?  Pretty much any lens will have some distortion when it's zoomed all the way out.  Look at this photo that should toggle betweeen the before and after phot...

Open two photos in PSE - the photo that contains the TV (target photo) and the photo you want to show on the TV (replacement photo) - I usually use a picture of the front of the house.  I have two methods of doing this - the first is quicker, but the second gives better results.  Here are the pho...

A simple, 10-question quiz that most people (at least Realtors) will be able to pass easily. Okay, so I missed the one about the FICO score ... I didn't read the question correctly :-)  But it's a good quiz to pass on to your buyers (especially first-timers) because it might encourage them to ask...

The email appears to come from a legi...

Living outside Washington, DC, we often forget the beauty that is in our own back yards.  A great example is the Virginia side of Great Falls, just a few minutes from my home.  A few weeks ago, I got these pictures - missed the peak of color by about a week, I think - but it was beautiful, noneth...

This young guy has been a frequent visitor in the last few weeks.  He likes to perch (on one foot) on the fence in our back yard.  We don't usually see them up this close in our little corner of suburbia.  He just sits there looking around for five or ten minutes, then takes off.  He appears to b...

Every year in the Spring, we deal with the invasion of the sugar ants.  Around this time of year, we start getting what I call the "lazy wasps" ... big waspy looking things that fly around as if they were drunk, bumping into everything.  The cats think they're great fun, but I'm not real thrilled...

My recent post on the Orphan Works bill was reblogged (thank you!).  This generated a comment requesting a tutorial on adding a copyright watermark to photos.  This can easily be done in Photoshop Elements.  (Don't let the long list below intimidate you - it's actually a very simple process.)  Op...
