Surprisingly good, easy photo editing

As any reader of this blog knows, being a photography enthusiast, I tend to think that cell phone photography is generally a poor substitute for the real thing if you will.

Sure, there are some exceptions but usually a good old traditional camera or SLR is light years better than even the latest mobile phone in this area.

But, given that there are some exceptions, it only stands to reason that this would be the case with mobile editing apps as well. Enter Photoshop Express.  Yes, the first name in photography has done it again.

Recently, when I was having a very difficult time editing the coloration of an image, I figured I’d give PS Express a shot. I uploaded the image from my SLR to my camera’s Micro SD card and went to work. The results where fast, easy and incredibly effective.

Check it out, I bet you be glad you did.

Creative and powerful short film Haleema

The art of film is something I’ve always truly enjoyed. But if you stop and think about it, it may be even more difficult and involve an entirely different creative style to develop a great short film. I recently came across this one called Haleema that I would like to share with our readers here at CD.

Enjoy!

Welcome Back Garth Brooks

The man who could arguably be called the king of Country Music as that he is only the highest selling male soloist of all time, is back with his first album in more than a decade.

While the album “Man Against Machine” is pretty good, there is one song that really stands out. In a world of hurt and suffering, indifference and intolerance, the song “People Loving People” is a welcome message in typical Garth fashion.

Please check out the video of the live performance from the most recent AMA Awards.
