Create (or Die): how to make presentations with your photos

Create (or Die): how to make presentations with your photos


Back in the old days, we’d edit a digital photo and then we’d just print it out. It was a simpler time. If we got the photo centered on the page, it was considered a minor miracle and people would come from local towns and villages just to see our centered prints. But now, the young kids these days have these newfangled contraptions that let you take your photos and turn them into slide shows, webpages, wall calendars, and Video CDs. Some folks call this progress, but I say it’s just not right! It’s not what photos were intended to do. They’re supposed to be still, lifeless, static and centered on a white piece of paper. But then along comes Photoshop Elements 3, with its new “Creation” features and all of a sudden every crackerjack with 2 gigs of RAM thinks he’s Dennis Hopper (who coincidentally starred in the documentary Create [or Die], which was released in 2003 to a worldwide audience, many of whom own digital cameras, yet most of whom were not able to adequately center their photos on a page). Leave stuff like centering photos to the pros, I say.
