I'm photographically challenged .....

I took lots of photos yesterday - without the memory card in my camera!  I'd been learning a little about  the Photoshop Elements 11 application I'm trying out for free before buying it and decided to use the memory card to upload photos from day before yesterday.  Well, as often happens, I got side-tracked and forgot to reinsert the card in my camera ..... lots of shots with no proof!  Here's the only shot I got of the team detailing Floribunda yesterday, right here in the RV park ...

And, here's Lacy, in her camping hairstyle, watching the process.

I'll take more photos of Floribunda's return to beauty today and post them later.  Yes, the memory card is in the camera!


  1. Ha! I have also done that exact same thing!! My new Panasonic Lumix does not allow for you to take photos without a big warning on the screen...and believe me, it has reminded me more than once! I now carry an extra, formatted card in my camera case since I have been caught out and about without one in the camera!!

    1. That's a great idea to carry an extra memory card. I do carry an extra battery after being disappointed when I'm out and the battery is too!
      I'm fooling around with photos a little each day - trying Photoshop Elements 11 and just put my whole 9K photos on an external hard drive so I can free up space on my computer and make sure I don't delete them or some other foolish thing I can be inclined to do!
      I have a Panasonic Lumix that's about 2 years old; think I'll dig it out (it's here in the rig) and try it again. I've been using a Sony Cyber Shot I purchased online while I was in Guatemala - it's a little more involved and I love it but I did like my Lumix too.

  2. If I may Mary Pat - before you purchase Photoshop Elements you might want to consider trying a free trial of Adobe's Light Room. I have used both and I m now using LR and love it so much. It is easy and wonderful with excellent reviews and support.

    1. Hmm - didn't know about that. I'll check it out; thanks for the tip.

    2. Hi Sheila:
      Now, I'm confused about what's different in each Light Room and Elements?????

    Lightroom is a professional photographers work-flow program which has the ability to process large numbers of RAW image files and make custom white balance corrections as well as calibrate the image to match the camera and lens being used. In addition metadata can be added in batches based upon the needs of the photographer

    Lightroom is NOT a retouching program like Photoshop.

    It seems by your question, you want to do retouching. For that you will need Photoshop at some level and Elements can do that.

    What Lightroom does best is process RAW files giving the photographer full control over the resulting JPEG, TIFF or DNG image file

    I found this answer on the web. It just depends on how you want to use the program.

    You might want to also check out Picasa a free program for Google. I used it for a very long time.

    1. Thanks, Sheila, I love all the tips and suggestions. Right now I'm giving Elements 11 the trial run. I have iPhoto on my MacBook Pro - I'm just looking for a little more editing ability.
