How To: Share Photos Quickly and Easily

Photo Sharing can be time consuming. We sometimes struggle with downloading the pictures to our computer, then we have to go through them and decide which are worth uploading. Sometimes pictures get rotated 90 degrees unintentionally, sometimes they need to be cropped, sometimes they need red-eye reduction. Once you've done all that, you have to remember where you saved them so you can upload them to some photo sharing and printing site. Lots of work!

I've been investigating various options for making this easier and I've come up with an approach that is pretty fast and easy. Using a combination of the software that came with my camera, Picasa, and Facebook I can upload pictures from a day trip within just a few minutes. Here's how:

Insert Funny Caption Here

Each week in the Boston Globe, there is a contest where they provide a cartoon and challenge the readers with providing a witty one-line caption. Winning entries usually contain some local current events reference. Here is last week's cartoon:

Deanna submitted an entry for the first time and I am pleased to report that her submission was given an honorable mention! Click here to see Deanna's name in lights and the other winning submissions.

I am so proud of Deanna. When we lived in Phoenix, she got Sam published in the Arizona Republic "brag book". She's already gotten our boys published in the Wellesley Townsman multiple times. And she even won a contest where her idea was chosen for the Wellesley Free Library's newly launched e-newsletter: "The Wellesley Reader".

What's next? Great job Deanna!
