DIY Cropping In Microsoft Paint

Hi Friends,
Today we are taking a look at photo cropping using "Paint" program on your computer.


Because we love to take lots of photos and Christmas time is here, I thought I'd do a piece on cropping your photos. I often have things in photos that I'd not like to have in the photo, so I just crop it out in Paint!

Here is how I do it.

Open a photo you'd like to edit in "Paint" when you left click on the open photo.

When paint comes up, you can choose many cool options in the above tool bar.

Choose the "View". This will allow you to "Zoom In" (increase) or "Zoom Out" (decrease) the photo. Today

I will decrease this photo.

Next, Click the "Home" button. This brings you back to the home tool bar menu.

Choose "Select". It is a rectangle box with the word "Select" under it. Just choose the box, the others below the arrow we don't use today.

*(I have placed arrows to represent the areas I will be cropping out.) For example, the fence post joints. Although they are cool looking, it takes away from the subject and the yellow leaves and the cliff behind. I also went just above the tree tops of two boarder trees. This will center my subject.
Drag the "Select" box over the area you would like to crop and lift up your finger to drop it where you want it. If you don't like the look of the area in the box, simply click the outside area to remove the box and start again. If you need to there is a blue arrow in the tool bar, above the arrow the word home to "undo" any changes to your original photo.

Next, your photo should be cropped. Click the "Save" button or Control "s" to save your photo.

Close "Paint" at the x in the corner and your ready to use your newly cropped photo!
Hope you got all that!

Prayers for Healing Update

Prayers for Healing (Prayers for Healing UPDATES) Hello Dear Ones,

When a believing person prays, great things happen. (James 5:16b NCV)
I've been giving thought to how to go about our prayer chain. I have decided to do an ongoing prayer post with updates and with Praises as they come in!

If you would like to be on this list, or if you would like me to post a prayer for you, please just let me know in the comments below in the Subject line put "Prayer Request", add the first name and last initial, prayer request and I will add it asap. I remove the info from the comments, so you will not see it below, but on this list here when I am done.

It has been said to me many times that, " if we don't know what to pray for, be it huge or small, we don't recieve the blessing that prayer will give the person who needs the prayer and the person praying". Please keep posing the prayer requests. All personal information is kept private.

We pray to you Lord Jesus Christ to…
