Saturday (24th) is a day that I try to do some relaxing and clean-up around the house.
I had a lot of trouble setting up Adobe Photoshop Elements 6 just the way I wanted it to work so it was back to the books for hints. I disabled the "auto uploader" in the System tray and figured out how to disconnect files and folder from the catalog so that I can just see the photos I am working on. I don't like the way it controls the location of my files. If you move a photo in a folder then the application goes nuts. I must write this down in my notebook so I can remember how I did it. It is something I do if I alter the way software works by default.
I used "drag n drop" to put the folder of the Lower Mystic Cemetery into the Organizer so that I could print the contact sheet and that worked fine so I printed them, photocopied them and put the originals in my folder. I took out an old pad of notebook paper and started a list of the folks I took photos of. I used Find a Grave to look at Mary Cook's photos for the ones of the GATES surname. Two of the ones she took are readable which makes me wonder when she took them.
I took my work down to the living room and watched a movie, looking up vital records and the list of grave photos at Find a Grave on my Acer Aspire One netbook. I quit at 2 PM to read the new Family Tree Magazine while resting on the couch. After all, I am the Couch Potato Genealogist!
