Talk about being in the right place, at the right time, to capture this background image of Hot Air Balloons at Cappadocia (photograph by Kani Polat, My Shot).

Hot Air Balloons at Cappadocia

The success of a photograph almost always comes from planning, and luck definitely favors the prepared. In this shot of hot air balloons over ancient rock formations in Turkey, the photographer no doubt planned ahead to make sure he was in the right place at the right time. First, the cone-shaped rock formations complement the similarly shaped balloons. I especially love that one larger formation is included on the left. Not only is it a bold shape to have close to the camera, but it also has a curious, cave-like element and speaks to the geological history of the setting, giving the image that all-important sense of place. Second, the early-morning light raking in from the right is perfectly lovely, as are the soft clouds, which were a lucky element. Finally, the balloons are beautifully placed across the sky, but the red balloon in the upper left of the frame is the final, key element to the success of the image.—Catherine Karnow

How To Spruce Up Your Google Search Page

June 5, 2010

Many PC’s that I get my hands on I set the homepage to “Google.com”, that loads the Official Google Search Page. I have found this to be a great launching point, especially for new computer users. The page has always been quite bland; however, recently Google has provided an option that will allow an user to add a background image to the page.

To find and apply this option, visit Google.com. Once the page loads you will see an option to “Add a background image and make Google your own” (see below).

Google Search

The background can be an image from your computer, your Picasa Web Photos (google account required), the public gallery or from the editor’s picks. For example, I uploaded the image below of a broken Microsoft Window from my PC. Each time I perform a search, that image is now my background (see screenshot below).

Select A Background

One thing to point out. If you want to remove or change an image you can do so by clicking on the “Remove Background Image” text at the bottom LEFT CORNER of the screen. It is difficult to pick this out; however, you can get the general location by looking at the arrow in the screenshot below.

You can read the official notice of this new feature at the Official Google blog [ HERE ] .

FREE Windows 7 Themes

April 13, 2010

Incorporated into Windows 7 is a very nice personalization feature that allows you to customize and apply themes. With themes you can easily change the visual and sound schemes on your PC.  In a nutshell, a theme includes a desktop background, a window color, sounds, and a screen saver.

Themes are a combination of pictures, colors, and sounds on your computer. It includes a desktop background, a screen saver, a window border color, and a sound scheme. Some themes might also include desktop icons and mouse pointers.

The neat thing about Windows 7 you can download new themes and then individually change a theme’s pictures, color, and sounds to meet your own personal tastes. To personalize your Windows 7,  right mouse click on your Windows 7 desktop and select personalize. You will then be presented with a window where you can manage; and “Change the visuals and sounds on your computer”.

Where is a good source for Windows 7 themes?

One of the best sources I have come across is directly from Microsoft’s own Personalization Gallery [ HERE ] where there are numerous theme packs available.
image

To use one the themes from the Personalization Gallery, simply select a theme, click download, and then open. The theme will then be applied to your desktop and added to the Personalization controls in the Control Panel.  Again, to get to those controls, follow the steps above.

Also, while you are at Microsoft’s Personalization Gallery, note that there are also tab options available to download desktop backgrounds (or wallpapers), desktop gadgets and sideshow gadgets.  All for FREE…
