Currently I am going back to old workshop tutorials in PI and using them to become more familiar with drawing functions. Basically, I use PI for editing photos and have been since somewhere around 1998.

My wife of 63 years died a few months ago and I am adjusting to a new life where I need more things to do.I've been trying to get out (in winter) and take more photos. And also been doing what I mentioned above. In addition I have been taking piano lessons (not the first time) and am focused on playing jazz arrangements of songs from the 40s and 50s.

Periodically I pop in here to ask for help which I have always received.

Stan

By the way, I'm 86 years old.

Oh my, Stan. 63 years of marriage. That is an admirable feat.
My condolences on the lose of your wife. I am sure that adjusting to a new life at this point is a challenge. However, it does sound like you are getting out there and filling your time with some very worthwhile activities.

I look forward to seeing your work here in PII.

Long time together with your love, and the love isn't gone at all. I'm sure she is with you where ever you go and what ever you do. I'm glad you are getting out and doing things! Probably hard to do sometimes, but a good thing! We're here for ya! :)

Stan, that must be really hard to get used to after so long. I've been married 53 yrs myself. It's so good you are filing your time with things you like to do.

Doing tutorials is my best way to learn new programs. That's mostly how I learned how to use Photoshop. But I took the BW twice, once in 2006 and again to brush up in 2009. Now I am more comfortable working with layers.

Stay creative and show us your work!
