I am not sleeping. It is 1am on a Tuesday night (technically, Wednesday morning) and I am wide awake watching Paula Deen’s sons who are watching a lady in Miami make a key lime bundt cake because I just love the Deen brothers so much that I had to stay up to watch them.  Or not.  No, I am awake because I downloaded the free trial of Photoshop CS4 yesterday and started playing.  And then kept playing until I woke up from my trance and realized it was 1am.  Sigh.

I started digging through my photos from the last year and gave a few of them a little spruce.  This photoshop thing is addictive.  Don’t those cranberries look tasty?  I know, I know.  We’re kind of out of cranberry season so maybe it’s not fair to tease.  But in my late night delirium, I was feeling festive.  Happy Sleepless Night!  (In case you’re interested in how to make these cranberry gems, here is the recipe I used from Half Baked)

My hubby does the photoshop in our household. He is totally addicted to it, but I must admit, the photos he churns out are absolutely lovely. Get some sleep girl!

If you decide you don’t want to pay for CS4, you might be able to get away with “GIMP”: for basic design work and image work. If you need a good free raw image editor you can check out “Raw Therapee”: and they make widgets to read raw into GIMP as well.
