How To Become An Instant Painter With Your Digital Camera

I took this photo with a Sony DSC-S75 Digital Camera

on Maple Avenue last Thursday morning and I wondered if there was a piece of software out on the Internet that could turn the photo into a painting!.

Well sure enough I found such a tool and here is the one of the 16 Direct Paint options you can use. In this particular instance I used air brush.

The software is call Virtual Painter and you can download it here for a free demo.

If you like it,pay up the $55 for the stand alone version and that next digital photo you take may end up a great work of art!

I found VirtualPainter to be a lot of fun.

I am not associated with Virtual Painter in any way. Just sharing info about, what I think is a nice piece of fun software to use with your digital camera.

We Can't Live Without Westchester Medical Center

Over the past ten years I have had three heart related procedures done at the Westchester Medical Center and I can personally attest to the fact that we can't live without the ONLY comprehensive 24-hour Heart Center in the region as well as the ONLY: Burn Center betweeen NYC and Canada, 24-hour Level 1 adult and pediatric Trauma Center between NYC and Albany, and Children's hospital in the region. Tell NY State Governor George Pataki and state legislators to act now to help this vital regional healthcare resource. Go to WORLDCLASSMEDICINE.COM to e-mail your support for quality advanced care in the Hudson Valley.

The Martha Stewart Media Frenzy

Here is a link to my "pictorial reporting" on the Martha Stewart Media Frenzy.

Current References To Katonah In the Blog World

Technorati (a real cool tool)is in one way a search engine for blog sites. Here is a link to bloggers that mention Katonah in their blogs.

Of course, today there is a lot of comments about Martha Stewart's release from prison and house confinement on her beautiful estate here in Katonah.

Why in my opinion, is Technorati such a cool tool? You can get a sense
of what people are collectively commenting on Martha Stewart in the context of Katonah (or any other topic for that matter) in one place.

I view Technorati as a comments/ideas synthesizer for the blog world.
