The Daily Digi.

I meant to post this last week but we had a seriously crazy week. I had surgery on Friday. It went really well. Just things I needed to take care of for a while. I should have a better quality of life now :) So the whole week I wanted to make sure I got the house in order and then guess what? I found lice in my 7 year olds hair! We got it 2 times last year. This is our 3rd time. I do not wish lice on my worst enemy! She cried so hard when I bagged up her stuffed animals. Onto a happier topic :)

One of my favorite blogs is the Daily Digi. It has tutorials, designers, and just cute stuff. I went there the other day and Janet was talking about sharpening images for the web. I guess the web softens images after uploading it. I had no idea I needed to sharpen my images! Does anyone do this? I was thinking it is a good idea for paper scrappers too. It is super easy too. Click on the link and she will show you exactly how to do it. Ok, I am going to try it, here goes:

It is very subtle. I think on this layout I notice it the most on the journaling and title. I do like how it kind of cleaned it up. Here it is on a photo.

After another sharpening
I thought it wasn't quite there so I unsharped it again by pumping up the radius to 1.8. I think it makes a big difference. This is what the picture looks like in real life. Maybe one size fits all will not always work but now that I know what it is suppose to look like I can adjust it pretty easily.
We took this on our trip to Seattle (just my husband and I). I love this sculpture!
