Fun with Picasa

 I have been using Picasa for as long as I can remember--and more now than ever since I started blogging. I love editing all of my photos with this program. 


One of the features that I love the most, is the text feature.  Recently, I altered an image from The Graphics Fairy, and I thought I'd share it with you.  For this project, I used the retouch and text features.

This is the original...




Excellent graphic, right?  I thought it would be cool to put my blog name on it, but "Caligraph" was already there. I went into Picasa and used the retouch feature to make it disappear...


Bye bye now!  With the text feature, you can rotate the text box anyway your heart desires, and type in that direction.  Sweet!




Looks like it's always been there, doesn't it?  I will show you what I did with this soon...stay tuned!

  1. Cute idea! That is one of my favorite images from the GF. I have seen others posting about Picasa but I have yet to use it. I think you've given me the nudge I need.

  2. Oh awesome! I used Picasa a bit when I had my previous laptop but it would always hang. I have been using Picnik lately but will give Picasa a try again! This is too cool!

  6. Cute! I really don't know much about Piccasa, but I've used it and Picnik a few times. Maybe I can get it to erase my wrinkles!!!

  10. I hadn't heard of Picasa prior to this post. It looks like it might take on many roles in the workings of a creativore's mind!
