I am back again, finally I have been able to find time to continue on with my challenges. This challenge is to use an editing tool to check the alignment and adjust the image so that your edge is perfectly.
What is meant by this; well how often have you taken a photgraph and then when you checked it found it to be slanted to one side or the other? Steve Patterson has given a very interesting article on using Photoshop to achieve this perfection, but the problem is that Photoshop is not the most inexpensive software on the market. However the article and what he talks about is worth reading:
An alternative in Windows 10 has been written about by Ashley Blood, How to Straighten Photos in Windows 10. There are plenty of other articles, these are just two after my first search. Now to my problem, I was lucky enough to be able to visit the Bolshoi showing of their national costumes when it visited Belfast. The exhibition was held in the old Crumlin Road jail (gaol), using the old cells and the connecting corridor for display purposes. Lighting was difficult, as was trying to get the images. I have put together a slide show of the images, but there was one image of a tutu which clearly not straight, and by using the tactics in Windows 10 Photos, I have made some adjsutments.
Now to my problem:
And after adjustment, it doesn’t look like much was done, but even subtle changes can make a big effect.
The exhibition was a show stopper – if it hadn’t been for the fact that it was already in jail, I think my aunt who had accompanied me to the show (and is a devotee of ballet) would have tried to “borrow” one of the costumes!
