So, my overly caffeinated brain decided to take a trip down memory lane. I present to you the reason for this thread today, in order of appearance (through the first 1000 posts) in the now infamous The Photo Below Me thread :)

Don't know how well chosen it is, but it's a low DOF. Glad I got my Nifty Fifty.

The Image below me is very 'angry'.

Skrim17 wrote in post #3534995 (external link)
Do you all leave your tripod quick release plate on your camera?

Nope. Not me. I carry three tripods and a monopod with me everywhere I go, but I rarely use them, so the quick release plates stay on the 'pods. Actually, on the heads, which are rarely attached to the 'pods...

G'MAE all.

Still trying to catch up. I hope I'm not repeating information here

Skrim17 wrote in post #3516502 (external link)
do you eyeball straightening an image of is there some sort of grid I could use??

cfpackerfan wrote in post #3516513 (external link)
There's a grid in CS2. It's under 'view' and 'show'

short5 wrote in post #3516528 (external link)
I draw a crop box which has straight line and orient it to what I think is level.

There is a 'measure' tool in PS (I believe this works from PS7 onwards). You can draw a straight and level line with this. However, if you draw that straight line along a line which should be level, such as the horizon, or along a line which should be vertical, such as the end of a wall, it will read out the angle that the line is away from horizontal. Clicking on the 'rotate' tool after that 'should' then bring up the rotate box with the required rotaion already entered.

I'm working from what I can remember from magazine articles as I don't use PS. I use the GIMP which has the 'measure' tool but does not transfer the angle into the rotate box. I just measure the angle then enter it into the rotate box manually.

Now how am I going to manage this 'catch up' properly ??? Cat - do you teach speed reading classes I can attend?

S&H was poorly cast. Wrong guys for the roles. I hope they don't mess up Get Smart too much. I really liked that show.

Totally agree the S&H and Dukes were screwed up bad. I too hope they do good with our friend Maxwell Smart.

Holy Cat crap! It's after midnight, and I have about 3 loads of laundry piled on my bed that need folding before I can sleep. :shock:

Of course, they will just get thrown into the closet, and I'll fold them tomorrow, but I'm just sayin. ;)

Reminds me of a ritual around here. The clothes get piled on the bed in the morning and back on the floor at night, and on, and on, and on. Seems someone in this house thinks I should put my own clothes away. Sheesh :D

Let me guess... ;)

Take the ruler (Measure Tool -- it hides under the eyedropper), and use it to draw a line across whatever you want straightened. Then, go to the Image menu -> Rotate Canvas and select Arbitrary. Click ok on the dialog box that comes up, and you're good to go, though you'll need to crop a little to fix the corners.

Pete wrote in post #3518632 (external link)
The knock-dead easy peasy way to rotate is this.

Select the Ruler tool from the palette (click and hold on the eyedropper icon and you'll see it in the drop list).

Then use that tool to draw down a vertical or along something that's supposed to be horizontal.

Then go to the Image->Rotate Canvas->Aribtary menu option. In there, it's got the direction and angle already set to make the ruler line either vertical or horizontal (whatever's closest)

Simple, innit? And zero guesswork needed.

Gaa. I sould have known someone else would have posted this method - and much more accurately than I was able to do.

neil_r wrote in post #3518651 (external link)
An even simpler way to get a line is to pull one in from the vertical and horizontal rulers.

This is not my picture but I was showing someone how to do it in another thread. (the lines are mine)

I'll have to try that way, too, Neil.

Marian is attending a Teen Life youth rally in Arizona this weekend, and I was voted to drive her to the pick up place this morning. At 5. SO I'm up. :rolleyes:
So THIS is what it looks like here in the morning. :lol:

Uh oh. :shock: I left a paper plate full of pistachios on the desk last night. This morning the plate was on the floor upside down, and there were no pistachios in sight. Just a slightly damp spot on the carpet. :shock:

I just googled it, and pistachios are highly toxic to dogs. (I didn't know this)
I don't know which dog ate them.

Crap.

My vet doesn't open for another hour and a half.

How many pistachios were in the dish? With the size of your dogs, they will more than likely be OK, but; I'd call the vet too, just to be sure.

Cat, my previous dog Mandy, a Golden Retriever ate nuts all the time, though never pistachios. She would take whole nuts, bust them up with her teeth and deftly pick out the meat pieces from the shell.

Even Ben loved nuts, though only the shelled kind. I know he ate peanuts and cashews, not sure what else.

I would just bet your dogs are fine, a 'cept the part where you are mad at 'em. :)
