Cookie Like PC Bracelets & Some Computer Stuff


In my previous two posts I tried something new with blogger (at least new for me!) - that's scheduled post publishing. And guess what? It works just great! :)

All you have to do is get your post ready and then change the date and hour at the bottom of the post editor, tab "Post Options" (Možnosti objave). When you click the "Publish" (Javno Objavi) button, your post becomes "Scheduled" (Načrtovano). And when the scheduled time arrives, your post will be published - while you are sleeping or shopping or jogging or watching tv or making love or having coffee with your friends or writing your next scheduled post or whatever it is that you are doing at that time.
The other thing I tried is called Gimp, great software for quick (or not so quick) image manipulation. Usually I use Photoshop for editing my photos and other things, but my computer has some troubles with it lately (Photoshop burns A LOT of memory and my computer is rather old, that's why I had to find replacement for it). I discovered that Gimp is better as far as memory consumption is concerned - while it can do most of the things Photoshop does. Anyway, I downloaded Gimp and started using it and although it is very similar to Photoshop I had quite some troubles using it. Well, I still have some problems - I can't find things I am looking for and I still feel quite lost in there. The reason for that is really simple, I believe - not intentionally, I downloaded the Slovene version of this program! It is a good translation, well done, but it seems so funny and strange... and it's soooooo annoying! And it's sad that I don't feel comfortable using a program that is translated into the language I hear, speak and write daily.
Rounded corners on the photos in the past few posts are done in Gimp. I love them better that way. What do you use for editing your photos, if anything?

A, super za načrtovane objave (nesem vedu ;) No, zdaj vem. Moram sprobat ;)))) In že vem za kaj!

zapestnici sta ču-do-vi-ti!
In Gipm praviš? Nope, ne poznam. Sicer urejujem z novo verzijo Picasse. Tu sem bosa, priznam.
