Sort Graduation Photos into Everlasting Memories

The month of graduating has just passed. It is a chance of growth, a new expedition in life, but also a time of parting. In the future you may see younger college students graduate every year, but for you, graduation memories happen just once and never again. When the time comes, you are prepared to leave the campus, say goodbye to classmates and teachers and to everything which has been so familiar to you.

No matter you have just graduated or have done long ago, you are surely to have some delicate feelings every year this time. Being both excited and uneasy, young people bustle around for their graduation attending all kinds of boisterous good-bye parties with classmates and roommates,  going on graduation trips, hunting for jobs or internships, and taking graduating photos.

When the hubbub quiets down, maybe you are now working in a company or interning at somewhere, or taking part-jobs to wait for the postgraduate semester to come. You will still recall what graduation means to you now and then. 

When look at hundreds of photos taken in your college life, all happy and melancholy memories could emerge. Take an afternoon in leisure weekend to sort these photos, you may surprisingly find that you are living your college life once again. The photo taken when you and your friends go travelling, another one snapped when you were drunk at a birthday party and there are so many more.  Details of college life may fade in the time as you drench yourself in endless work and housework. Thanks to digital photos nowadays, we are able to grab these fantastic moments in life and share them with our family and friends.

Usually you may just save the original rough photos on computer or if candid enough, you upload them directly onto your Flickr or Facebook. But to your disappointment, comments or likes may come in quite a small number even after months’ of time. The fact is that you have better ways to deal with these precious memories. You can edit them with software like PhotoShop, or make them into a special album or put them into wonderful collages with some graphics software. Since mastering PhotoShop is a process so intimidating and complex for most amateurs, why not try some more user-friendly and interesting tools like Picture Collage Maker or CollageIt?

Picture Collage Maker is a powerful and easy-to-use program for creating photo collages and digital scrapbooks from digital photos with just a few mouse clicks. Various professionally-drawn templates and layouts will make your graduation photos unique and creative. CollageIt is a very useful software which produces collages automatically according to the layout you choose after adding photos to it.

Graduation memories are too precious to let go, so pick a time to sort them out. Refresh the photos as well as your memories by putting them in an album or in collages with your heart and the right tool.  It’s the part of life worth recording to be everlasting memories and to be shared among the ones you love and care.

To Inspire a Generation---London 2012

It is a truth universally acknowledged that London had held the 4th and 14th Olympic Games in 1908 and 1948 respectively. However, there comes the third time for London to hold the 30th Olympic Games this year. People in London will be immersed in a competition atmosphere of enthusiasm. In fact, it is not only for London, but also for the world.

Look at the London Olympic logo creatively designed. It embeds “2012”, “London” and the Olympic rings into the logo. Is it the voice of London that London 2012 Olympic would become everyone’s Olympic and become everyone’s 2012? From this logo, you can see that it symbolizes the dynamic, modern and flexible age, reflecting a new and colorful world. It also tells us that in this world, people, especially young people are no longer at rest, but armed with new technology and new media network. They must be in want of much more encouragement. However, London 2012 will inspire the young people from every corner of the world to take part in physical exercise actively.  

During this great competition, some people may take part in London Olympic in person or some watch it on TV. Anyhow, everyone will be together with Olympic Games; everyone will be together with London city; everyone will be together with the competition spirit.    

However, it is for the whole world will have to get involved in the Games, something unhappy may happen unexpectedly causing by the feeling of national honor. There is no doubt that every competitor and every cheering squad would expect their own team win in the competition. Some people may pay much attention to the victory so that they forget the Olympic spirit that this game will bring peace and friendship to the people from the world.

As promoter of the modern Olympic movement, Coubertin said "The most important thing in the Olympic Games is not to win but to take part, just as the most important thing in life is not the triumph but the struggle." I think that is what really makes the Olympics what it is. So don’t blind our weak eyes to the wretchedness of our present lot, and dim the glory that is to be revealed.

As long as you hold fast to your dream and stick with your belief, you will be the final winner of London Olympic. Believe that you will be inspired by the Olympic spirits. London 2012 Olympic Games will be bound to inspire a generation.

Create a Personalized Blog Background with CollageIt

If you are a blog owner, won’t you like to make your blog outstanding? To be honest, as a Blogger owner, I would. But it will not be outstanding without you doing anything. In the long term to run a blog, I understand that the blog with only some readable articles cannot be the most attractive while a blog with both readable articles and a personalized background can make it. 

A personalized background, to some degree, refers to a background designed with a unique thought and unique photos. CollageIt, an easy-to-use program, will assemble your unique photos to make a blog background reflecting your personality quickly and automatically.

Before open your CollageIt program, you should prepare some classical photos first. You can download your photos online from some big websites like Flickr or use your own photos from your camera or other photo stock. However, most people would rather choose the latter than the former, because they think that the latter is tend to be more unique and meaningful. It is also true for blog owners to make the characteristic blog background. 

After preparing your photos, add them to the CollageIt. You can click the Page Setup and Background button in the upper left to set your collage and change your collage background respectively. What’s more, you have a few options to fine tune the appearance of your collage. In the Layout section, you can choose one collage style from the four styles including Mosaic, Grid, Center and Pile. You are also able to control the individual photo number and photo Margin by setting the Layout. Meanwhile you can use Shuffle and Random Layout to change the order of the photos in the collage automatically. By doing so, a desired collage for blog background is initially formed. 

When you finish your collage, you can preview it in the collage and export it as image. If you think it deserves to be called a personalized image, you can upload the image and set it as your blog background to attract more visitors. In fact, you can personalize your Twitter background, Facebook background and other page backgrounds in the same way. 

Have you ever found the right way to create a personalized background for your blog? If you haven’t found it yet, try to find the answer from CollageIt.

DIY Wedding Greeting Cards for Newlyweds

Marriage is the shiniest and brightest note in every individual’s life. Marriage brings people exciting and wonderful moments in their daily lives! A good wedding is a good beginning of a good marriage. For newlyweds themselves, they are responsible for the wedding dresses, suits, rings and other things for their wedding. But as a guest or bosom friend, we can give them our gift along with a DIY wedding greeting card.

When we give the newlyweds our best wishes, a DIY wedding greeting card makes the special day perfect. We can personalize the greeting card with free greetings, for weddings, which express our deep feelings and emotions perfectly. However, making a special wedding greeting card is not as easy as sounds. It needs a good preparation.  

It should be admitted that a perfect wedding greeting card can't be too delicate. It should be little simple but much appeal. Generally speaking, a greeting card has four pages: front cover, inside front cover, inside back cover, and back cover.  We should design them one by one.     

For the front cover, some beautiful flowers with wishes are always chosen as the main theme while a quietly elegant background is chosen for adorning. Write their nick name and some simple words like: “Happy Wedding Day” “Congratulations!” If your handwriting is not bad, write it by yourself for it is more moving and touching. Of course, the number of photos and the certain words to be written depend on your ingenuity. You can design more creative according to your unlimited imagination.   

For the inside front cover and the inside back cover, there should leave some space for the newlyweds’ wedding photos. For my part, if the inside front cover is left for the wedding photos, I will leave my wishes in the inside back cover. I would like to shout out my great big blessings to bless them forever.     

For the back cover, many people think it is a detail that can be neglected. Actually, that is not the case. Although it, more often than not, isn’t seen at the first sight, it will show your carefulness and the affection between you. So you shouldn't be careless. Design it as you design the first three pages. Draw a Fresh and elegant back cover is a much more perfect idea. No one loves gaudy and garish cards all the time.

When the four pages are finished, you can add a musical box in the greeting card. You can also add something as decoration or ornament to the wedding greeting card, especially a band of lace trimming or embroidery. That is your DIY wedding greeting cards which is able to express your wishes completely.

Five Keys for a Perfect Self-timing Photo with Your Digital Camera

Nowadays self-timing becomes more and more popular among females. Many women try their best to take themselves beautiful photos with their digital camera but they often fall into disappointment and frustration after several failing experiences. They are either on the way to quitting their favorite hobbies of self-timing or to finding skills to self-time better. In fact, skills for self-timing better do exist. Let’s learn five keys for a perfect self-timing photo with your digital camera to share with your friends on social websites like Facebook and Flicker.

1. Choose a Beautiful and Proper Background

Before you begin your exciting self-timing, you should take consideration for the background of your photo. It should be beautiful and unique in artistic view to enhance the beauty of your self-timing picture. Besides, it should be in concert with the color of your clothes or disposition of you. It can be set on the seaside, grassland but never in your narrow toilet.

2. Design Your Pose Previously

An old saying goes that a good actor comes from well preparation. The same goes with self-timing. You should design your pose before you begin your exciting self-timing with your camera for a perfect photo. What I will mention here is the attentions you should paid to when you design your fantastic poses.

To make you look slimmer, you should shot from the top to down and guarantee that your camera angle is at 45 degrees in your head position and raise your head slightly to look to the camera. To make you look more nature and intellectual, you should shoot from bottom to top by bowing your head and letting the hair covering your face to make it look cuter.

3. Keep a Certain Distance from Your Camera

Don’t close enough to your camera, or you will most likely get an ugly look in your self-timing picture. In fact, to get a better look of your picture and make your face look small and cute in your self-timing photo, you should keep a certain distance from your camera never close enough to it.

4. Don’t Use Your Flash Light

Never use your flash light for it will shadow the photo and make the shadow part of your face look much clearly. The true beauty will be turned into a plain woman with flash light to self-time. If you shoot under poor lighting conditions, you might consider using an external light source by setting background on a white wall or white paper to supple the light.

5. Process Your Self-timing Photo

Last but never the least, after you took your beautiful self-timing photo, you should process it with software like Photoshop or turn it into collages with collage creator like Picture Collage Maker to give you a perfect look in your photo or collage.

Keep the five keys in your mind and start to self-time with your camera according to them; you can easily get your long expecting effect of self-timing photo.

Three Tips for an Amazing Fathers’ Day Gift

We can never ignore the importance of father in our life.  As William Wordsworth said “Father! - To God himself we cannot give a holier name “. He taught us how to count from 1 to 100; he taught us how to ride bicycle; he taught us the value of life; he supported and encouraged us when we get down or frustrated. He always says less but does a lot. He sacrificed a lot for us since he decided to become our father. He began to raise a family with scaling back many of the activities and interests that defined his life previously and giving up the freedom to be spontaneous whenever the mood strikes since we were born. He deserves an amazing and unique gift which helps us express our gratitude and respect for him. With the coming of the Father’s Day, there are three tips for you to present an amazing gift for your respected father.

1.     A Bouquet of Beautiful Flowers

A bouquet of beautiful flowers is an essential part of an amazing gift for this coming Father’s Day. Flowers that convey your gratitude and respect for your father with their special meanings are ideal for Father's Day.

A bunch of blooming roses will express your reverence and gratitude for him. White and Red Roses are considered the official flowers for Father's Day. People wear a white rose to honor a deceased father and a red rose to honor a surviving father. Besides, flowers stand for masculinity, tall and sturdy like fathers such as tropical flowers are also an ideal choice of this Father’s Day gift. What’s more, Men love flowers in bright, hot, bold and aggressive colors like yellows, oranges, purples and reds such as Tulips, Chrysanthemums, Daisies, Asters, etc. which can also be a amazing Father’s Day gift.

2.     A Stunning and Unique Collage

As your father may walk half of his life as a man, he has experienced many significant moments of his life like his childhood, the graduation of his university, his marriage ceremony and so on. He may treasure the photos of those important moments in his old photo album which is easily fading away.

In fact, you can scan those old photos into computer and present him a sunning and unique collage made by collage creators like Picture collage Maker, CollageIt , Pearlmountain Image Convertor, etc, as an amazing Father’s Day gift to him.

3.     A Gift According to His Interest

Main Points of Restoring Faded Photos

Time is the most ruthless but powerful thing than any other things, which makes people become old, fades individuals’ memories, and tries all. Human beings are so tiny in front of time. Even a recorded photo cannot record things permanently for the colors may fade out day by day. However, as the time passed by, are you willing to throw away your faded photos which record your beautiful memories? If you are not, you should know the main points about restoring faded photos now.    

Learning something about restoring the faded photos, you can save your faded photos easily one day. There are three main points referring to fixing a faded photo: Color Balance, Contrast Enhancement, and Saturation Enhancement. To deal with a faded photo, one should control the three aspects skillfully. Of course, it must need some knowledge of art and aesthetics.   

Color Balance

Searching the meaning of the “color balance”, color balance is a term in photography and image processing. It means the global adjustment of the intensities of the colors (typically red, green, and blue primary colors). If you are a major in art, I think, you can easily adjust specific colors perfectly correct with a store of specialized knowledge. But if you are not familiar with art, the only thing you can believe in is your perception to beauty and aesthetics.     

Contrast Enhancement

A faded photo should be fixed by enhancing its contrast which refers to the measurement of the brightness level between the brightest white and darkest black in an image. Generally speaking, the greater the contrast is, the clearer the image will be. But, it is not to say that the greater the contrast is, the better the photo looks. As the Chinese old saying goes that when a thing reaches its extreme, it reverses its course. It is also true here. If adjusting the contrast improper, the photo will look unnatural. However, what is the best contrast ratio? The best contrast ratio to display the vivid and rich colors is 120:1.  

Saturation Enhancement

Saturation is another main factor which will affect the brightness of a photo, especially a faded photo. When you fix a faded photo, you should enhance its saturation as well as its contrast. It is not easily to manually control it well, so you can choose automatic color saturation enhancement.

After knowing these three main points, I firmly believe that you can restore your faded photos more easily

Six Steps to Decorate a Novel Bedroom with Your Collages

Collage is just an original way to carry some life into your bedroom besides traditional way of decorating bedroom with posters, music records, bottles, frames or even photos. What’s more, you can schedule a collage covering photos of children growing up, exotic places and weddings. If there are teenagers in your house, you can help them create their own wall collages with the cover art from their CDs. So don’t hesitate any longer, join me on the journey to learn the six steps to decorate bedrooms with your collages for a better decoration.

1. Consider the Theme of Your Decoration

Since a bedroom is the personal getaway or sanctuary that expresses your taste of colors and collections, the theme of your decoration is the first thing you should consider. Only when you set your theme, you can decide the right style of the collages fitting for your theme. For example, if you want to have a feminine, shabby chic or Victorian bedroom, then you will hope to have a floral or feminine artwork. However, a modern bedroom will look great with prints in sleek frames. Once you determined the theme of your house, you can decide the appropriate color and the frame of the collages which you will use to decorate your bedroom.

2. Consider the Owner of the Bedroom

Since you may decorate the bedroom for yourself, your children or your parents, you should take the owners into consideration. You should consider their ages, hobbies, preference, and so on. For example, if you decorate the room for your seventy years old mother, you should never consider using collages made by photos of football stars. You should consider scanning and imprinting the photos she treasure in her old photo album into the computer, and make her favorite collage. You should also choose the right color of the collage she may love.

3. Choose the Appropriate Photos

After you made the previous determination, you should go into choosing the appropriate photos to fit for your theme. You can choose the beautiful scenic photo taken during your Indian travel. You can also choose the artistic photos you took last mouth.

4. Make Your Collages

 Next, you may need to scan and input the photos into your computer. Then you can create your collages with the chosen photos by collage maker like Picture Collage Maker, CollageIt and so on. When your stunning collages have been made, you should print it directly.

5. Choose Frames for Your Collage

Then you should choose frames for your collage before you put it on the wall, since directly sticking your collages onto the wall may leave behind marks of the item and holes in the wall when you get rid of them. You should also choose the right style of the frame according to your decoration theme.

6. Decide the Place of the Collage in the Bedroom

Then you can decide the place of the collage in the bedroom and put it on the wall. It should never too sparse or too intensive.

Now, our journey of decorating novel bedrooms with your collage comes to its end. May you a novel decoration for your room!

Before setting out for a journey, deciding where to travel to is really an important thing since destination counts a lot in your journey. What’s more, making a choice for a travel destination is actually convenient as there are so many places provided for you to choose from. So you can take advantage of various travel websites, travel books, and guide books to choose an ideal destination according to your interest and duration of your holiday.

Setting on a date should be taken into consideration next because you have to pin down the date of your travel to make sure whether or not that would be a peak travel season in the place you are to visit. What’s more, it will let you know whether your possible destination would be in winter season or summer.

Then you should consider the budget for your holiday to decide the place or the hotel where you would stay during your coming holiday. And you should decide the way of transportation you would choose to arrive at your destination according to the distance between your residential place and your destination place and the time that you could spend in traveling. Book the ticket for your train or plane to carry you to your destination and the accommodation there in advance. Ignoring those measures may finally bring a lot of chaos in your holiday plan.

What’s more, you may check the weather of your destination and the weather forecast of the period when you would be there to make sure that you take the right kind of clothes that will help you adapt to the weather condition there. You may also schedule your journey in the manner of itinerary. If you are not familiar with your destination place, you can take the help of a tour guide. In fact, in order to save your time and be away from difficulties in cultural differences you should also take consideration of the people, food, culture, language, and the activities you may do at your destination place when you arrive there. For example, if you love to taste different local foods, you can directly go to restaurants that offer local specialties. And in china, red is a fortunate color never symbolizing danger. When you see red symbols in china, you may never become nervous as in your home countries.

Last but not least, please equip yourself with preventive medicines and first aid equipment before you set out for your journey. With those supplies mentioned above, you can save yourselves from the possible trouble of hunting for a local doctor or drugstore if you get sickness.

Ignoring this step, you would fall into unnecessary expenditure and wastage of time during your holiday instead of relieving yourselves from daily routines. So please follow it and enjoy your travel!

2.       Enjoying and Recording your Journey

Your journey is on the way after a thorough preparation. What you need to do is to immerse yourself in your well prepared travel. You can enjoy the landscape, the culture as fully as possible. Don’t bind yourself in a hotel or merely in a restaurant for a few weeks. In fact, you can travel around your destination place on a rickety old bus and watch people of different walks of life, with different life values and beliefs.

What’s more, it’s very important to record the moment of moving triggered by a scene or a stranger through taking photos to share with your friends and relatives. And those photos can keep your precious and beautiful memories fresh.

Besides, you can taste the specialties in a local restaurant and buy some local products as keepsakes for yourself or gifts for your friends and relatives.

You can firstly deal with the individual photos with software like Photoshop and make your individual photos look more perfect. And then software like CollageIt either for Mac or Windows can easily turn several dealt individual photos into both stunning and unique collages. Then you can present your unique collages to your friends and families to let them experience your perfect travel.
