  • Word of Caution When Editing Photos With Picnik

    - 11 years ago - 1 comment
    While I have been a member of Picnik for several years, its only been in recent months that I have used its photo-editing feature on a regular basis. In attempts to move my projects along more quickly after uploading an image to Ipernity from my computer, if necessary, I would then upload the image to Picnik from Ipernity, crop and/or straighten it, as needed. And then click the REPLACE tab. Not until today did I learn that these particular RELACED images, edited with Picnik, can not be…

  • The Elvert Barnes Mixology Podcast

    - January 13, 2009
    Finally, my Elvert Barnes Mixology podcast has been launched. It will feature music mixes /blends that I, myself, have created. My work is documentary, so, eventually, I'll be going through all of my old cassette mixes and remixing them into mp3 format. The Elvert Barnes Mixology podcast will, therefore, represent an archive of my music compilations dating back to the 80's. It is a task and project that I look forward to working on.

  • Holiday Windows

    - December  2, 2008
    Long before I took up photography in 1992 which was after I received a Minolta as a December 1991 Christmas gift I had always enjoyed Holiday store window displays .

    This represents my first blog posting to my newly launched Ipernity account .  Still familiarizing myself with Ipernity which as a result of an ongoing issue with Flickr regarding the restricted status of my Flickr account which, efffectively, defeats the purpose of why since April 2005 I have uploaded such a large collection of images to Flickr with the intent that, for the most part, my body of work at Flickr would be easily accessable to the general public ... one of the features that I li…
