Photobucket….It is a bucket load of laughs.

Have you ever tried PHOTOBUCKET photo editing ?

Holy smack dab….Awesomeness with a capital A.

I was so excited about PHOTOBUCKET I had to type it in cap’s.  My cap lock button is reserved for top drawer, back of the bus, best-est ever awesomeness.  I lie.  It is also reserved for when I am smoking mad.  You know how that goes.  Type it in CAPS LOCK and somehow the other person will be scared out of their pants of your words.  That sounds nuts just typing that.  What was I thinking?  I would actually need a poster sized font to really make my point.

I have been in search of photo editing options to make my photos look like I did something spiffy. I wanted to do this with little effort and not a lot of big bucks.  Zero bucks, actually.  That’s right, I wanted big returns with $0 financial outpouring.

I wanted a program that was not only free, but one that I could learn in a snap.  Lightning speed learning.

I would rather spend my extra time in the day baking apple pie.

Now that is really important.

Reading a photo edit list of instructions is ….YAWN.

 I knew I wouldn’t do it.

Bake a pie = YES.

Read a manual = NO.

So get ready.  Now that I have given you an apple pie craving,  I am also going to knock your socks off with showing you how to edit your photos.  You won’t believe the things you can do.  Yes, you can even create a collage…..

Collage of photos

As a blogger, I was looking for a free photo editing website where I could add text on photos.  Easily.  Like super easy.  I find it quite inspiring to take fun photos, but the icing on the cake is the ability to funk them up with some character.   Once in a while.  Stir the pot.  Put some love on your photos.

Statue at the Louvre

Photobucket rocked my world.  There was no reason to be a scare-d-y cat.  It was, in fact, easy.  I just jumped right in.  Pushed all the buttons.  I even impressed myself.  I somehow even discovered new funky ways to pull pranks on my kids.  I created this photo and posted it to my daughters Facebook.  Aren’t you glad I am not your MOM?  I bust a gut laughing so hard doing that. Tears down the eyes.  I sense a payback coming on soon.

Share your photo with a star

Photo editing is not something that I excel at.  Drinking margarita’s.  Ok, that I can do like a pro….when put to task.   I am not NEW.  I can party like a rock star.  I can not party like a rock star.  I am in bed at 9 pm.  Why do I always tell the truth?  It is the internet.  You would never know if I was lying.  My Mother would somehow know though.  Nuff said.

 I am new to photo editing.

 If it is complicated, well…I tend to look the other way.

 I cover my eyes and sing

“la,la,la… I am not listening “

“Talk to the hand, the face ain’t listening”

 Yes.  That is the extent of my photo editing in a nut shell.  Until now.

Now Photobucket isn’t all goof ball stuff. Ohhh contrare.  You can do some artsy stuff in there too.  That is where the creative comes out !  And you don’t even need a creative bone in your body.  Go figure.

Silence

One day, while in Paris, walking around at Jardin des Tuileries and outside the Louvre….I was struck by some interesting views.  Every statue I looked at seemed to make me THINK….and maybe smirk a little….

I know, I know, Paris isn’t exactly the first place that comes to mind when you think of funny.  I get that.  I  lived there for 2 years.  I’m reading your mail.  French culture does not equal FUNNY.

Stunning beauty, YES.

 Culture, YES.

Funny, NO.

Finding the funny was a survival technique for me.  I had to mix in some laughs, amongst the embarrassing-non-stop-moments-of-speaking-franglais.  It was a humbling experience, to say the least.  So I balanced my moments with some smiles along the way.

I suppose I will never get bored.  I swear, I even pinkie swear, in this next photo…. I did not put that white masked dude in the picture. He was REALLY hanging out of the Louvre.   Real deal.

This next photo was of a guy who can seriously multi-task.

A man.

Multi-tasking.

Imagine that.

 Teetering on his toe, holding a torch, wearing wings, swinging a chain and sporting a star on his head.  Nothing is askew.  Not to mention the fact that he did it all NAKED.

Paris France

Yes, I captured a photo of a naked man, multi-tasking in some pretty funky garb.

Rare moments happen sometimes.

May your photo editing, text adding, collage creating moments be forever as

 Easy as Pie

to do.

HAVE A LAUGH !

      Ohhh I think we definitely do, miss Race Car Driver ! Holy Hannah, you are the only female race car driver I know….how funky is that life?! Laughing through it all…cheers! Lynne xx

      • Thanks, Lynne. I wouldn’t call myself a race car driver exactly. Do I drive them on a track fast with a helmet? Yes, but is not really racing. It is a great way to learn and become a more capable driver. No real timing involved. Just don’t want to give you the wrong idea..

          Lisa….any woman who drives fast in a car with a helmet on… is A RACE CAR DRIVER to me. Heck, if I wore a helmet while I was racing down the highway to meet my girlfriends, I would classify THAT as race car driving.
          You humble thaaaang ! You rock out loud!

    Absolutely hilarious! Don’t stop. And see, you can have fun in Paris, lots and lots of it.
    Just goes to show, ‘A bird on the head and a ‘zizi’ in the photo’ can make a world of difference.

    • Lynne Knowlton says:

      Well that is a brilliant compliment from one of my FAVE Paris photographers EVER…and one that knows how to have fun in Paris too !! Bisous !! Lynne xx

  5. Dude, this post was hilarious. HIGH-larious. CAPS … *snicker* Definitely going to try Photobucket, though. I’ve been using Pixlr but I’m not in love. Thanks for the reco!

    • Lynne Knowlton says:

  8. Rose Dostal says:

    Rose
    p.s. So glad you figured out my subscription:-)

    • Lynne Knowlton says:

      Hiya Rose! I am thrilled that the subscription finally worked. Hopefully your computer got a big clean up too, and now it will run like a race car. Fast as lightning! Welcome back !!! Lynne xx

  9. Stop making me laugh! I have pneumonia right now and when i laugh, i cough. Not cool! I should have known better than to read your blog ;)
    I MUST show this post to my kids because they giggle almost every day about all of the nude statues they’re going to see in Paris. And…i’m going to giggle about this post when i see them.
    Glad you found a free, easy editing software. Makes photos way more funwhen you can play around with them. And you’re right about manuals. Blech.

    • Lynne Knowlton says:

      Whaaat??!! Janet – damn it- pneumonia ?! Geeze Louise…get better soon, my friend. You need all the wind in your sails for laughing in Paris. Here is the super cool thing about the Louvre…outside….when looking at the Louvre from Rue de Rivoli ( main road that it is on), to the left, is the most incredible peaceful “courtyard space”, that most tourists don’t even go to. It is quiet and you are SURROUNDED by the walls of the Louvre. So after that peace and quiet, head to the right side of the Louvre-to Jardin des Tuileries. That is where the peace and quiet stops because you will be roaring laughing at the naked statues. Well, at least you will now. Bring me home some new pictures of some other funnies ! What a great project that would be for the kids! Lynne xx P.s. some friend I am, trying to ‘expose’ your kids to ‘nakedness’ in Paris…with a photo evidence project. haha.

  10. Jessica says:

    riproariously fun. Did I just make up that word? I hope I did! xoxo

    • Lynne Knowlton says:

      You sure did. I love the new word. RIPROARIOUSLY …haha…we have to try that one in our google searches ! :))
