    I’ve actually used Lumapix/Fotofusion very happily (fully paid for btw) HOWEVER…. I recently crossed from PC to MAC so my last update to V4 was not compatible with my MAC…so now I’m a super sad panda and would REALLLY love love love to be able to get back to using a software that was and is phenomenal !!!!!!! I saved time and was able to put my creative touch on every single album I designed with Fotofusion!

    Jimmy Arcade – I wonder how much post processing has taken the place of using studio backdrops… And yet, I just purchased a couple of backdrops from a yard sale that a retired photographer was running. I suppose my question will be answered, in part, when I see how much I use the backdrops.

    It’s going to be a hot day here in Bakersfield. The dogs are licking themselves silly. I am contending with what should I start working on .. for my day job. I have so many things to deal with, but I can’t seem to prioritize. So I decided to take a break and look at SLRLounge.
    And I got my new sandals and mid-height backpacking boots. My old Tevas broke after about years of taking me on daily dog walks, an occasional sprint behind a runaway pup, lounging around campsites in the sierras, beaches of Thailand, Yosemite. I will miss those Tevas. I am wearing my new ones right now. In the house… just to see how they feel. I don’t like them as much. Perhaps I am holding them up to a really high standard: My old Tevas were bought for less then 1/2 their original price in the REI used gear sale.
    My hiking boots are to replace my older ones that I gave away on the way back from Peru a couple of years ago. Since then I’ve been using my trailrunners as backpacking boots too. Yeah.. I know. That’s just silly. But I don’t like to gather too much stuff.
    Does software count as “stuff” ? I am not sure… It doesn’t take up much physical space. But it does take up mental space. Well… we will see. If this will help me create something useful and interesting, why not?
    Have I been rambling? I guess so… I am a fast typer. Oh.. that reminds me, I need to clip my finger nails. They’ve grown long enough to bother me while typing.

    Hi! This summer is going by way too fast! Can’t believe July is just about over. I waited so long for summer as winter last year seamed endless. Our last huge snow storm was May 12th, Mother’s Day and we received almost a foot of snow. I swore I would never complain about heat in summer again and I haven’t. I love summer!

    Random thought? Hmm, well, I could easily get in trouble for that, so I’ll be cautious, lol. Anyway, my random thought to share here is that it’s amazing the coincidence that this popped up in my feed, because my wife is working toward her own photography business, and this software would help her out amazingly well. Thanks for this epic opportunity, and may God bless all who enter with an even chance to win!

    HELLO! Its night now and its still hot here. I have 4 fans on now! Ah, summer in Jamaica. Is is possible for my computer to overheat? I still have some photos to edit and I don’t want anything to slow me down. Is it possible to leave a comment too long? I tend to ramble a lot. I always try not to. Is this thought random enough? Is this even a thought??? WHAT IF I DON’T WIN??? Can thoughts be this long??? I NEED ANSWERS. Anyways, thanks for the giveaway! Hopefully I don’t lose. Losing is generally something people don’t want to do. I should stop typing and get back to the editing. See ya!

    If you really wanna know, weather here in the Middle East, Abu Dhabi UAE particularly, is at its peak with mercury rising as high as 55 degree Celsius, like right about now it reads 38C but feels like 55C, (100.4F/131F) how crazy hot is that? With that said, we cant shoot outdoors ;( so it’d be awesome to get a new awesome software to play with to keep me amused while staying indoors. Cheers!
