Google Inspiration

I have a little something that I would love to share today.  I recently downloaded Google Chrome, a very wonderful browser.  I still use my Safari, but I also use Chrome.  I like how it bookmarks the sites I visit often during the day.  Here's their blog

After I downloaded Chrome, I noticed that they had a shop.  I couldn't help but browse.  There I found something called Pixlr Editor.

Pixlr Editor screen

It was free, and when I started using it, I realized it was quite a powerful editor.  I found it so similar to Photoshop that I could easily navigate around.  Sooo cool!

Here's a little filter called Kaleidoscope.  I took the image of Alice and clicked on Filter, browsed down the drop down menu and clicked Kaleidoscope.  Ta dah.

click on this to see it enlarged and peek into the Kaleidoscope.

Photoshop is expensive, I use Photoshop Elements, which came bundled with my Wacom Bamboo Pad.  The Pixlr Editor is quite terrific, and has a few new filters that I don't have on Photoshop Elements.

Kim Klassen's Cherished Texture

I hope that you have a great Wednesday, and if you would like to enhance your photos using your wonderful textures like I used today from Kim Klassen, check out Pixlr Editor.  If you would like to read about it first, here is the Pixlr Blog.

First of all, I'd love to sit down to a cup of tea with you. Second of all, what a great find you have there. I will check into it. Not that I'll know what I'm doing, but because I love what you're doing!

Hi Karen,
Tea sounds wonderful! Thank you for posting about this app in Chrome. I've been using Chrome for a while, but I did not know about this. IT will be fun to play with it.

I switched to chrome about a month ago, but hadn't discovered this app. Thanks for pointing me in that direction! Your kaleidoscope image is amazing.

Oh my, how terrific! I have been using Chrome for a year or so and love it. But I never knew about Pixlr! I'm trying it today!
I'm so glad I stopped over via your feature on How Sweet the Sound!!
