Now that I'm "out of the closet" about not owning any photo editing programs,
(I guess I was embarrassed and felt like I was a photography phony since I don't own Photoshop or Lightroom),
I'm including a brief description under each photo of how I edit my photos using PicMonkey.
( I subscribe to their inexpensive "royale" upgrades. I think it was $33 for a year.)
When I did own Photoshop, before switching over to my Macbook Pro,
I took a great online course from Kim Klassen on using textures.
For Lightroom owners she is offering a complimentary course on Lightroom beginning next week!
I received these beautiful gerbera daisies from one of my daughters for my birthday
and enjoyed photographing them.
It's a lovely way to keep the memory of the flowers long after they fade away.

Aren't they lovely?
