Remember me?

I haven't been around much lately...
Blame school & James!
Most of today was spent doing homework. But I have a kick-ass layout done that looks like it is right out of the pages of Q magazine!
Just sent an up-to-date file of the Coverville playlists to Brian for his ASCAP, BMI, etc licensing. He's just hit show #250!
Yesterday afternoon was lunch with genevra and two of our old high school friends. It's nice to see them, but my life is so different from theirs now that I have a hard time communicating and just plain relaxing. There's just not a lot in common any more. Then when I got home Saturday afternoon, hellbob told me that we were going to go out to dinner with Jeanine and a guy she's currently dating. We tried to go to some Dim Sum place, but it was closed for a private party. We ended up at Big Bowl instead, and the food was way yummy as usual.
As y'all saw in my previous post, on Friday night Moose & I met John Hodgman. We also got to meet author Neal Pollack and musician Jonathan Coulton. hellbob was tired and not really looking forward to going, and lucky13charm had to go to Iowa to sing in a wedding, so when I got home from work on Friday I set about looking for someone to go with me. camel0t wanted to but she already had plans. She did have the brilliant idea of checking with her man, Ty, to see if he was interested. He was and I think he had a pretty good time.
And now it is late on Sunday night and so I'm gonna go to bed!

D'oh! So I blame James for my non-postiness and don't say how he's contributed... Yes, I am still working on the over-abundance of pictures from the Queen Mary. Also, since meeting them on the boat I joined the Yahoo group where many fabulous women hang out, and those girls never shut up! It's exhausting trying to keep up with them. *waves at MS contingent* The phone's ready, give me a call!

I uploaded over 100 more last nite...
I am now done with the Q & A and have started on the HLOD commentary.
My incentive to get off my ass and get them done is that I'm going in order and the oh-so-yummy black t-shirt/floppy hair ones are post Teachers.

This picture:

started out looking like this:

I opened it in PhotoShop.
First I cropped it in a smidge: I set my rectangular marquee tool at fixed aspect of 2 by 3 because that's the proportion of the original image, set where I wanted it to crop, and from the menu selected Image > crop.
Then I opened the Levels dialog: Image > Adjustments > Levels, or Cmd-L (Ctrl-L on a PC)
For these white shirt ones I just adjusted the RGB channel: I slid the middle input to about 1.35 and the white input (the one on the right) to about 181.
Then I put the copyright on using a brush I made with the text.

Some of the other pics needed more color adjustment, but these mostly just needed lightening.

I never use the auto contrast or color, but I usually just eyeball it as I'm adjusting color. And if I have a bunch of pictures that all have about the same lighting (like the Friday concert) I'll record an action of the levels adjustment so I can just hit play on that to do the adjustment.
