Azalea Sky~Azalea Door~Mosaic Monday

~Mosaic using Photoscape~

~Mosiac using FotoFlexer~
Path to EZ Collage
1. Click on link above
2. Select language
3. Allow to load and select "start flexing"
4. Make choice. I use "Edit From My Computer"
5. EZ Collage is last option on the right
6. Menu opens and asks about the photo you've uploaded.
7. I select "do not save" because I'm going to have to start from scratch in Fotoflexer anyway
8. Select your layout from the left side
9. Upload photos
10. Choose decorative options. Play and have fun!

While visiting Shabby Blogs this week, I found another online photo editing program called FotoFlexer. Unlike Photoscape, it does not require downloading to your computer. It has a simple mosiac program that allows the addition of graphics such as the little butterfly you see above. Kid stuff! Love it.

How I wish that azaleas lasted for weeks instead of days... The blossoms are already spent and making a pink carpet in the garden.

Linking to Mary at Little Red House for Mosaic Monday. A pleasant week to you...

Love Vee

  2. I have never grown azaleas but if I did, it would be the same lavender colour you have. The posy on the door is sweet.
    I'm going to check out Foto Flexer too.

  25. I am having such azalea love right now Vee!! The unusual weather has not been bad for these pretty blooming shrubs...your pictures/mosaic are gorgeous.

  26. Oh how beautiful...so relaxing..and thanks for sharing your knowledge I haven't even started to check out new editing options

    ReplyDelete
  27. Oh these photo fixing sites are so fun. I was happy to find that the new picasa has lots of new tricks to use too.
    Your mosaic today is so pretty. I'd love to be met with that at the door!

  28. You found a lovely way to keep those blooms around for awhile. Fun mosaics! The flowers of spring are all short-lived it seems. I'm sad to see the daffodils are spent for this year...and the tulips following right behind. But the irises and lilacs are about to bloom...maybe tomorrow!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Gorgeous Azaleas! I love the pink! Your collages look good. I love the selection of pictures you pick that keep a cohesive theme. I am beginning to play with them a little. I can never pick pictures that look good together. Hope your week is off to a great start!!

  30. I would like to try the new program you mentioned. You chose some beautiful shades of lavender for your mosaics this week! I love these flowers!

    ReplyDelete
  31. The azaleas are absolutely beautiful. I wish all the spring blooms would last longer.

  32. These are gorgeous photos and mosaics Vee. I can see that I'll have to try this new program when I get back home. Have a good week!

  34. The up close detail on an azalea bloom never fails to blow me away!
    Amazing, exotic, wow.

  35. How beautiful they are! I haven't had good luck growing azaleas here but I've seen such gorgeous ones in the south.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Azaleas are some of the prettiest flowers. I hope your week is full of more such prettiness!

    With all the free editing stuff on the web, one hardly needs to consider purchasing a program anymore. And now you've given me another site to explore.
