Blogville Arts and Entertainment 2

Hello Everybuddy!

This is Louis, writing from my office at the Blogville City Hall. Now that the election is over and Arty has been inagaurated, it's time fur me to get to work as Director of Arts and Entertainment. So far, I am lovin' this job!

Furst, I want you to know that I have an open office policy. This means that every Blogville resident is welcome to visit me in my office with your ideas and concerns related to the Arts and Entertainment department. I have a lot of treats here, as well as plenty of water, fresh veggies fur bunnies, and seeds fur birds. Do you have an idea fur an art project? Do you think we could improve? Just make an appointment by emailing me at I'll make sure we get together.

I have an open office policy.
I want to let you know a few things about the Endangered Species Challenge. There have been a couple of questions that I should answer:

1. Q. Does the endangered species really have to be an anipal?

    A. When I dreamed up this challenge I thought that it would only be about anipals. Then I realized that some of the creative beings in Blogville may not wish to be confined with respect to this. As there are no rules in art, and this is an art phodography challenge, I leave it to you, the artist to decide how to create your entry.

2. Q. How can I pawticipate if I don't have Photoshop and can't edit photos?

    A. Furst, you should know that nobuddy needs Photoshop fur this. It is furry expensive and hard to figure out. Photoshop gives Mimi a headache. As far as I know, most Blogville residents use Pizap, which is simple and free.
          Second , and this is impawtant, This coming Monday, Jakey from Dory's Back Yard will be giving a tutorial on how to use Pizap.
          Third, you can always take a photo of yourself with a picture of an endangered species, or you can bring one up on your computer screen and take a photo of that.

Actually, I learned everything I need to know about Pizap from Dory's Back Yard. There is a page there where it is explained so clearly that even Mimi could follow it with no trouble.

Here is an example of a picture that was edited with Pizap/ It is of my grrrlfriend Cricket and me at Dory's pawty;

Isn't Cricket beautifur?

Somebuddy said I look like James Bond in that photo.

Finally, I want to remind you that the dead lion fur the Endangered Species challenge is January 15, 2017.  You can always email me if you have any questions.

  5. My favorite photo editing site is DakotasDen

  6. Yes, photo editing can be done free and easy! For a couple years mom did all ours on her cell phone using PicSay (she paid $2.99 for the PRO version). Now we use Paintshop for nearly all our stuff. It goes on sale every now and again.
