  • Okay, I'm still watching, but thanks for the new action thing. I've been using Paint, because it's simpler to open, but if I can resize by just clicking one thing, I might switch to Photoshop.

  • "What is a normal person going to call that? Not your X=Y line? Your diagonal line!"

    Pssh, if they didn't get what an X=Y line was, they shouldn't be allowed a computer. =P I kid, of course, but that part was so adorable I had to mention it.

    You rock. Thanks for the vid, I'm starring this post in my reader. =]

    • LOL! Oh, if only that were true :P Navigating the interwebs would be so, so much easier!

      Really glad you liked the post :) xx

  • great tutorial.. My workflow is usually edit, resize, and then sharpen. I find that editing is more precise on full size photos. Just my 2 cents :)
    My recent post Rock & Republic Haul

    • Haha, I usually have a bunch of programs running at once – my computer lags if I work on photos at their full 4272 × 2848 size, so I cheat a bit and resize first :P

  • So useful, Rae! Especially the "actions" thing – I'll have to check if Gimp has that, as well. And I agree…the less clickies I have to do, the better :D Even if it is just three clicks.

    And omg, I always think the same thing when I come across "opacity." I rarely have to say it, and I can say "opaque," well enough, but "opacity?" Weeeeeeird.

    Annnnd…I still cannot get over how cute you sound.

    • !! :D :D

      Hope you can find something similar to "actions" in Gimp – it's super handy, especially when you have processes with more steps : )

    I love using Actions as well–it's how I resize and place my watermark, things like that. Great post, will watch again and share later.
