So Many Smart People Out There

Sometimes at night I just "Stumble" around the 'net, looking at whatever Stumble throws my way. I've discovered Photoshop tutorials that astound me, recipe pages that make my mouth water and things that just make me go "huh, how cool is that?"

I love the helpful pages; the ones where people found or created easy ways to do things and put it out there so I don't have to discover it for myself (heh). So here is what I've found recently:

11 Great Hidden Things that Google Can Do Who knew?

Online converter Yup, some of this can be done on Google (see above) but I like the fact you can break down units in so many ways. And where else can you translate text into Morse code?

Basic Photoshop tutorials. I don't have PhotoShop, but I have downloaded the free open source Gimp which apparently is much the same. I haven't used it yet, but it's on my "to do" list. And websites that would give me a leg up are great.

Honing a kitchen knife. I've been doing it wrong for years. Who knew?

Word nerds. I'm not the only one who cringes at mispronunciations and mis-used words.

How to reduce camera shake. As a neophyte photog I'm always on the lookout for tips.

I could go on and on. What are some of yours?

I would love to have PhotoShop but the price for this software is way too much for my budget.. and in turth.. way more than I need. PhotoShop Elements is what I use and LOVE. It has many of the key elements of PhotoShop and does much of what the more expensive software can do. I would highly recommend it, especially with that new camera on the way.
