How I Edit My Photos

4 Responses
Most of the bloggers I know have their Photoshop actions already saved which they will use in the future for their photos. I used to use Adobe Photoshop in all my photos. However about two to three years back, I bid farewell to overusing PS and switched to another PS - Photoscape. I still use Photoshop though for some really technical aspects like lasso tool and so on.

I am, for a million reasons, very much in love with the simplicity and user-friendliness of Photoscape. With just one click, your photo is good to go.

The many uses of Photoscape
Photoscape has many functions that is very helpful for every blogger. As you can see in the photo above, here are some of the functions with a self-made description.

  • Editor - If you are editing one photo and want to give it the best edit it can have, this is for you.
  • Batch Editor - As the title implies, this is for bulk images that needs to be edited. One thing to remember when using this is that if your photos have different lighting, etc, the output can be discouraging. However, if you are only using this for watermarking, then this is indeed for you.
  • Page - This is for collaging photos. Simply said.
  • Combine - This is like putting your photos in filmstrip, horizontally or vertically.
  • Animated GIF - Yes, photoscape helps you create your very own gif files. :) #muchlove
  • Print - To further help you with printing settings for the best output for your photos.
  • Splitter - Yes, you got it right. Split your photos into several pieces.
  • Screen Capture - Need I say more?
  • Color Picker - Have you ever had a colour you wish to use but don't know its hexcode? Poof! Here's your help.
  • Raw Converter - Professional cameras and photographers usually use raw photos. To convert this into another file type, you have your partner.
  • Rename - If you don't know SEO, then probably this will be your introduction. Everytime you upload images for your blog, change the filename. (ie, image101 to Travel To Tawi-Tawi)
  • Paper Print - Do you want to print calendars, notebook images, and so on? Here is a real deal for you.
  • Viewer - Lastly, the simplest use of Photoscape - to view photos. 

See Photoscape in action!

Let us apply magic!

Here is the result:

Just clicked a few buttons to add further magic.

How about we add filters available in photoscape?

To differentiate the photos, I put it in one page with the use of Photoscape, of course.

Btw, I only used LOW filters for each of the photos above to keep it subtle. PS has it in low, medium and high.

Here is another fave from PS, the photo splitter.



I hope this helped. Thank you for dropping by my blog.

4 Responses

I have been looking for an ample time that would permit me to update my personal website. Last Sunday, I spent some time with my laptop and made the necessary things needed. So yeah, the good news? I was able to do it. I actually updated my fb, twitter, and instagram about this already. Kulang na lang dito sa blog. ^^

My personal website is Given another free time, I would love to put some other things about me. I am still thinking as of now on what to put in there. Maybe, I will make it a portfolio website in the future. Who knows? If you have some ideas, please, don't hesitate to tell me.

I kept the website clean and minimalist. Sooner or later, I would have this blog minimalized as well. Tho, as you can see it is already minimal. I want more minimal. hehe. How minimal is minimal, btw? Pero as of now, we might as well get used to this theme. I love it, you know.

Anyway, don't forget to visit my personal website. I had put my there for you to ask questions. Feel free.

MSU TCTO Founding Anniversary Celebration

0 Responses
Last August 4 was the first time in 6+ years that I was able to attend the Founding Anniversary Celebration of my dearest Alma Mater (kinder garten to high school), MSU TCTO. This time, I am not part of the studentry anymore. It was a mixture of nostalgia and excitement.

The celebration started with the town parade. There is a yell for each of the units for the parade and I am one of the judges. Afterwards, the usual program was held in the Jaafar Convention Hall in MSU Preparatory High School. I was also one of the judges for the bench-cheering competition which was really amazing. In fact, my elementary school won 3rd place in the said competition. Proud alumna here. :D College of Fisheries donned the crown for the bench-cheering competition. Had you seen their presentation, you'd be amazed.

After the program, each unit celebrates on its own. In this case, everyone under the Chancellor's Office headed back to MSU TCTO Campus in Sanga-Sanga. We had our sort of dry picnic just outside the Sabdane Building. It was also a time of giving back. Badjaos were invited to eat with us. However, I was really stunned how they did not make pansin our food. They don't eat chicken or anything with it. It was devastating. If you invite any of them next time, be sure to serve fish.

After eating, ribbon-cutting for two new buildings, Physical Plant Building and Registrar's Office, took place. It was srsly one busy day for all of us. However, we enjoyed naman. :)

Cuties from my elementary school. Proud ate here. :)

This kid has serious singing talent.

What I wore:
Chancellor's Office Yellow Polo Shirt
Blue Inner Shirt
Harem Pants from Gaisano Iligan
Converse Chuck Taylors Sneakers
Casio Silver Analog Watch

MSU TCTO Employees' Night

4 Responses
After college, I never thought that I would be dressing up again for an event. Little did I recall that I am in a university. As always, there would be dress-ups.This year's employees' night is themed "United Nation: World Tour 2014". As expected, each of the units will be dressing up according with the chosen country. It just so happens that my unit is representing Brunei Darussalam. Very timely because we have the King of Brunei: Chancellor Lorenzo R. Reyes.

Anyway, here are some photos from prep to the actual thing.

Officemates. I am the youngest. lol. I needed to say that. :P
