Testing,'s here

Today my new computer came!!!  Whoo hoo!!  I'm so excited but also scared to death, because I am NOT very technology savvy!  I've managed to get my Wi-Fi up and running and open and make my provider my home page for Internet!


I've downloaded all the new programs that I purchased with the computer including Adobe Photoshop Elements 11...I'm soooooo excited about this one, maybe I can learn to fake make my photo's look better, I need all the help I can get!  I am very disappointed that my new laptop does NOT contain the drive that my camera card will fit into, so I will still need to keep my BIG home computer in the studio for my photo's.  I am contacting the people I ordered it from because it does have a drive but a little teeny tiny opening, not nearly big enough for my camera card...I checked on this with them before purchasing and they said it would fit!  I just hope we can get this corrected, so the BIG home computer can go too! 

Of course no instructions or manuals or even pictures with no words are included so I'm kinda winging it here! 

If anyone has any suggestions, tips or words of wisdom I would love to hear them!


p.s. I can tell all ready, something's changed... I cannot "Preview" my post before publishing it.  So if this is all funky, HELP, any ideas?

You are so far already! I got a new computer for Christmas - it doesn't take long to get set up. It was nice to start over with a clean slate. Love that mouse picture - I need that or I should say...that is me.

Yay for you Pendra. I am excited for you. I intend to do the same this year, so I can get rid of this big clunky desk and all the wires. But the unknown scares me because everything changes. The older I get the less change I like. :( I shall be watching your progress. xo

Very cute post, Pendra. I feel your pain. I hate to update and only do so when I have too. Good luck to you. No, I cannot help with tech issues, but I hope you get it figured out pretty soon. Let us know if you learn Photoshop. Maybe you will do a few tutorials.

I'm so excited for you, Pendra! It's a bit hard at the beginning but pretty soon you'll be happy with all the change! I love the pics :)

I know it's a bit outdated, but could you use a card reader?

Adobe Photoshop is easy to use. I have it on my school computer for doing the yearbook and it is very intuitive.

Good luck.

What kind of laptop did you get? I hope it's an apple because they are so user friendly. I think you're doing great figuring everything out on your own. Fortunately I have inhouse (my kids) help!!

Hello Miss are such a cute little ladybug! Thank you for visiting me!

Your post all looks good to me. Not sure WHAT is wrong with Blogger. Something is always up tho! I hate updating!

Glad to have you following on Pinterest, too! I'm off to check you out!

Good for you - I can practically hear those brain cells stretching! A few weeks ago I, too, got a new laptop and have had quite a few (mis)adventures. You'll be so proud of yourself when you begin to feel comfortable with it. Learning is fun, right?! -- Jan

Hi Pendra,
Congrats on your new computer. Sounds like you are well on your way.
Blogger always has something up with it and hopefully you can preview soon. I know they did move where it used to be. Now it is in the upper right hand corner instead of straight above the post where you write it.
You will love doing your pics with photoshop. I use picmonkey and photoscape and love them both.

Have a great week my dear.
Hugs, CM

Well, I sure am impressed with your techy accomplishments! Way to go! My frustration with computers is that actual paper manuals do not come with it. Call me old-fashioned but I miss having something concrete in my hands! Good luck and rock on with your bad self!! LOL

Hang in there!!

Have a great weekend!

Pendra, I am not very computer savvy either. Have come a long way baby. lol! Still need to learn more. If anything serious goes wrong I have to rely on my computer savvy hubby. Wishing you lots of luck! Now a new follower.

Hi Pendra, Hope things are going well with you and the new computer. Happy Summer xo

Diane said...

So far so good I would say my friend! I love my laptop and its mobility. However I am not so computer savvy. My kids normally have to guide me through the computer stuff. I have an ipod and forget it....I know how to take a pic and that's about it! Diane

I thought of you today and just stopped by to let you know!! Have a great day

A fascinating discussion is worth comment. I think that you need to write additional on this topic, it may possibly not be a taboo subject but typically individuals aren’t enough to speak on such topics. To the next. Cheers

Glad to hear you have your computer and now can get it going. Not sure why you cannot preview. There must be something maybe in your settings. Not sure either I just kind of wing things as they happen on my blog. Good luck.
