Sally D’s Mobile Photography:Editing and Processing a Rose

Apricot Rose

Good morning from the first day of summer here in Hastings.  And to be expected it is raining.  We need the rain after the heat from last week so it is welcome.

I need some help if possible.  I have spent the past two hours trying to find photos in the Windows Photo app.  You upload the photos.  You can find them in the Photos app.  But you can’t find them in Photoshop, Lightroom or even Adobe Bridge.  The only way I could find them was when I restarted my computer and then it was added to the November’s folder.  But then I had to scroll forever just to find my mobile photos.  There doesn’t seem to be a way to download the photos into named files, making them easier to find.  Whoever designed this app is obviously not a photographer but some nerd stuck in a back room somewhere and no knowledge of what we really want.  I was stupid with the way I imported the photos anyway.  Normally I would go to Windows Explorer, right click on my phone and import that way.  But for some reason this morning it wouldn’t recognise my phone.  So any advice is welcome.

Rant over.

It is the 1st December for me now.  Yet I know that many bloggers are still in the last day of November.  Which was a fifth Monday of the month. So that means we show off some of our editing on our mobile devices.

So after much searching I found this image.  I spent a great afternoon showing a friend how to edit on the phone and some of the different apps I have.  This rose was edited using Distressed FX, just to bring out the richness of the apricot colour.  I didn’t go overboard this time, actually I have been rather conservative in the editing.

The Daily Post: Window

DSCF0541

Good morning from a cool sunny Hastings.

Todays challenge from The Daily Post is windows.  I have already done windows yesterday but still have lots of other photos of windows.

This one is the window of our local hairdressers.  This was taken fairly early in the morning with just enough light to have some definition. You can see the light but also the reflection of the street as well.  I took a lot of photos of this as it always caught my eye as I went past.

Here is the original post for those checking out this challenge.
