For the past week or so I have been having problems with my sleep. Each night it’s getting worse. It started off by my not being tired until the early hours of the morning. It moved on to not being able to sleep until the time normal people get up, which leads to today where I have had 1 hours sleep in the past 24 and I am still not remotely tired.
I am sluggish. It’s taking a great deal of concentration to hit the right keys on the keyboard. I have spent the majority of last night playing with photo’s I have taken. I downloaded Paint.net last night as I was having some serious problems getting my head around GIMP. I had been using Photoshop for the longest time, but for some reason the programme got corrupted and I couldn’t get it to reinstall correctly. I decided that I had the time and the will to learn a new programme, and I had seen some really nice photo’s edited with GIMP on various blogs and websites so I thought I would give it a go. I had been playing with it for about three weeks and it just wasn’t clicking with me.
Anyway so I did a quick search for other freeware Image Editors and came across Paint.NET. I have to say that it is so much more intuitive to use and reminds me so much of using PaintShop Pro from back when I first started messing with graphics. I still have a hell of a lot to learn but in my first 4 or 5 hours of playing with it I have come up with a couple of nice things that I could never have managed with GIMP or for that matter Photoshop.
OK, so this post was started a few days ago when I hadn’t slept for over 40 hours. I was forced to abandon writing and life for a couple of days and I slept pretty well so I am not going to even try and finish writing this post but wanted to post it just for shits and giggles.
Happy Halloween y’all.
Until Next Time…
