It was a semi-successful day.
Successful because: I was able to take a picture that I could actually use. This picture above is by no means finished, it is simply an in-progress. I like it very much!
UNsuccessful because: I tried to figure out how to do a "screen shot" video, so you guys could see how I do these. After 2 installations of different programs that appeared to not work at all, I moved on. EIGHT HOURS LATER, I realize that it's been recording the whole time, but it will not let me see, edit, or delete the video. FAIL. I'll get to it one of these days...hopefully.
