Samsung Note 8 and Photoshop Mix — Post Two

My second post showcasing my experiments in using Photoshop Mix (Post One link).

Once again, everything in here has been created and/or captured using the Samsung Note 8 and all edits are done on the Samsung Note 8. I then transfer the files to the PC so that I can output them using Lightroom (how I add the Dispersertracks.com watermark).

For them not interested in reading, you can go directly to the SmugMug Gallery HERE.  
For a slideshow click HERE. When you click the link, it will open in a new window and you have two options:
1) Manually scroll through the photos by clicking the “<” and “>” symbols to the left or right of the photos.
2) There’s a PLAY/PAUSE button at the bottom-left of the screen with the transition set at about 5 seconds. Note: clicking the PLAY arrow will run a full-screen slideshow. You can then still use the”<” and “>” symbols to the left or right of the photos as this will pause the slideshow.

If you want the full experience, keep reading

Project 313 – Post No. 128

Another Sunday post . . . so, another minimum content post.

There’s a certain freedom inherent in knowing that since few will read this I need only keep to the bare minimum.

Samsung Note 8 and Photoshop Mix — Post One

After I got done playing with Snapseed I turned my attention and curiosity to Photoshop Mix. It’s an Android app I’ve had on my phone for a while but previously I’d only casually checked out.

I had a few moments where I wasn’t motivated enough to do anything involved but was also bored by not doing anything at all and I decided to play with the app.

Once again, everything in here has been created and/or captured using the Samsung Note 8 and all edits are done on the Samsung Note 8. I then transfer the files to the PC so that I can output them using Lightroom (how I add the Dispersertracks.com watermark).

Project 313 – Post No. 127

I’ve been listening to a few interviews with Jordan Peterson. 

I can understand why he has as many fans as he does; he’s pretty slick during discussions. What irks me a bit are the arguments he makes in support of religion providing both a basis for morality and for meaning in one’s life.

Understand, it’s not that he makes the arguments; he’s entitled to his opinion. It’s just that logically and factually they seem easily countered. 

I say that carefully because people he debates are no slouches and me saying the above seems at least a tad presumptuous if not outright filled with a measure of self-importance typically found only in people under the age of 25 and I’m more than twice that age.

Project 313 – Post No. 126

Games are big business. PC-based, smartphone-based, dedicated device-based, you name it and you’ll find dedicated followers. 

Last I checked, gaming is close to a $100B a year industry. Mobile computing games account for about $40B of that total. 

Neither Melisa or I play any computer games. We don’t own a console, there are no games on our phones, and there are no games on our respective PCs other than the ones that come with the operating system . . . which we don’t play. 

The Roku we bought way back when had a version of Angry Birds in it and I occasionally fire it up when I want to feel like I don’t have a life or when I feel like wasting some of my precious remaining time. I probably play a few hours a year . . . in the years when I remember we have it.
