The Light

الإضاءه هي ما يبرز الصّور، ويزيد من حدّتها ووضوحها.. إلتقط الضوء، واجعله يعمل لصالحك :))

The way you capture the light, is the way your photos turn out to be more sharp and outstanding!

I’m featuring some of the photos which I believe they deserve the “Light” badge! They used the light appropriately.

“JustResizeIt!” Resize Your Images with Drag-and-Drop

As a photographer I deal with tons of photos that I have taken during my travels. Sometimes I find it difficult to resize images one by one, which is waste of time!

I have tried the Photoshop patch processing to resize, but nah.. The app I’m going to show you now is much better, simpler and easier!

It is called JustResizeIt! completely free and neat.

1. Drag and drop one or more images into JustResizeIt!,

2. wait a few seconds, and

3. drag and drop resized images into an e-mail, an office document, or a folder.

Unspoken Feelings!

Sometimes I feel like just sitting all alone; a laptop in front of me and I start writing. Keep writing for days, maybe weeks! Just keep writing. Some feelings cannot be spoken, they can be written only! And sometimes not even a pencil can describe what is in your heart, your true feelings! But once you start writing, you just fill the reader’s eyes with true feelings. Yes, I meant tears!

Kinda weird, but it is true! Imagine a photo can do all the writings? Yes, a single photo can do even more. Photos speak, but it is so sad that few people understand that language! The language of photos.

Sometimes I feel that when I cut a photo into halves, words are going to fall out of the photo itself!

Something is motivating me to write even more, maybe because I saw this photo below? Or maybe I have experienced something new?
