My husband and I sat outside in the sun today and read for awhile until the wind picked up and it started feeling too cold. Then we came inside and I checked my mail and was on the computer for a bit.
I checked Pioneer Woman's blog and clicked on this advertisement for Rocketlife.com and played with that.
Rocketlife is a pretty cool site that turns your photos into all sorts of useful items. They've got photo books, calendars, notecards and lots of other things. They claim that you can make an entire photo book in two minutes. And using the site today, I can honestly believe it.
They've got an automated feature that sorts through all the colors of your pictures and seems to be able to differentiate birds from dogs from feathers (I don't know how it's done) and it assembles everything into professionally laid out pages that look like they took days to create.
For photo books, I've used both the Kodak Share program (which I really don't prefer) and Shutterfly (which I really do). The problem with each is that it takes ages to upload your photos into the program. Shutterfly has so many more background and layout options than the Kodak program and I have also tried Lulu, but it's not as user friendly as the other two.
Rockletlife uploaded my pictures (and mind you, I have dial-up) in less than one minute. 75 pictures in one minute! I don't understand it. Nor do I know where they went, but hey, I can upload all of them again in less than a minute, so I don't care. Has anyone out there tried Rocketlife yet?
Oh, the bird pictures. You must have realized by now that they have absolutely nothing to do with this post. But for your viewing pleasure, I have chosen to feature an American Goldfinch, a House Finch, and a Red-Winged Blackbird. I wouldn't wanna mess with that last one. His sharp little bill looks like it could do some harm.
