REDISCOVERING MYSELF THROUGH PHOTOGRAPHY

Monday, June 20, 2011

I wish I knew how...

An online friend, Jo, has what she calls a simple tutorial for creating a "mouse-over" set of photos.  The problem is that I am too simple-minded to understand how to do it.    These two images would be perfect for this little technique, but it's not to be.   This single yellow seedling peony is my choice for Lisa's Creative Exchange this week.  (The plant is the result of my 90-year-old mother's hybridization efforts; very often, she crosses wild peonies with domestic ones.)

Your mother created a work of beauty and you captured it beautifully!
I'm not too good with all that technical stuff either. Keep trying, I have faith you'll figure it out!

This is just beautiful Evelyn! I absolutely love Pixel Dust textures!

Don't feel bad about the mouse-overs. It took me a long time to get it down, but when I did, I found that it really slowed the loading of my blog, so I decided against it. I probably did not do something right :-( I am awful at the technical side of blogging!!

Thank you so much for sharing this today at The Creative Exchange.

Have a beautiful day my friend!

lisa.
