Amazon Prints is REALLY worth the try! $1000 of Amazon Gift Cards to be Won! #AmazonPrints

Wow, graduations, weddings, Father’s Day and so much more. It truly is picture-taking season. I love taking photos and I wear my camera like a fashion accessory. I am always on the lookout for new services to print my photos,  so I was very intrigued when I learned about Amazon’s new photo printing service called, Amazon Prints

Have you heard about it? If not, let me tell you about some of the great perks. Prime members can upload images to their Prime Photos account, print whatever photos they want and get free delivery. Prime members also get unlimited photo storage! If you are not a Prime member, you can still get 5 GB of storage free on Prime Photos and be able to print your favorite photos. Prices for prints start as low as $0.09.

I am a Prime member so I am super stoked about using Amazon Prints. I used to use another photo printing service and if you did not order regularly they got rid of your photos in storage. That was a real pain. I like that I can store my photos, as many of my photos without worrying about them being deleted.

I can do more than print photos with Amazon Prints, I can create all kinds of photo gifts. It is so easy to make photo calendars, wall decor, more than just prints, photo books, cards, photo books and much more. I really find this to be very convenient and easy and that is something I appreciate, because my time is valuable.

Now for some more great news! You can enter the giveaway below for your chance to win an Amazon Gift Card! There are $1000 of Gift Cards to be won!

Adobe, Photoshop Elements 12 Review & Giveaway!!! 2 Winners!!! #HolidayGiftGuide

Adobe_logo

My photo editing software has long been Photoshop Elements.  I love the user-friendly format and have been using it for years.  I upgrade as the new versions come out and have recently upgraded to Photoshop Elements 12.  Every time a new version comes out it’s interesting to explore and find out the great new added features.

 

With Photoshop Elements 12 you will still be able to organize, edit, create, and share your photos but you can do it  more quickly and easily thanks to big, bold icons; a helpful Action bar; and the ability to choose from Quick, Guided, and Expert editing modes to fit your needs.  It has never been easier to sort and manage photos based on people, places, and events using new Organizer views. Find your photos using visual tags that represent people, places, pets, events, and objects.   Of course you will be able to create perfect shots from not so perfect pics with handy editing features that have been enhanced or added to Photoshop Elements 12!

adobe-photoshop-elements-12

Content Aware Move lets you easily move objects in your photo to get things to look the way you want.  We all take shots where everyone is not where we want them, right?  Now, take a look at how easily you can fix that.

You can also straighten photos and use Content Aware Fill to fill in any missing background, fix a  pet’s eyes with the new pet eye feature edit, use Photomerge Group Shot to take the best faces from a series of group shots and get one spectacular picture.  I love this feature, and it has let me get the perfect family photo more times than I can count.
You can share your photos easily right to social media sites with ease because now these options are available not only in the Organizer like previous versions, but right in the editor in Photoshop Elements 12!!!  In the quick mode you can now add artistic touches to your photos to put your personal touch on your favorite photos.  Add embellishments and frames to make your photos stand out, look at the video below to see just how easy it is!
New filters are available that let you turn your photos into stunning illustrations.  Try using the Comic, Graphic Novel, and Pen & Ink filters to get the WOW without all the work!  Want step by step guidance?  Now there are added edits available in the Guided edit mode.  You can restore old photos, make a photo puzzle or add neat effects like the Zoom Burst with ease!
As a wife, mom of 5, blogger, writer, editor, hobby photographer and marketing director, I rely on Photoshop Elements to let me get the look I want as easily and as quickly as I can when editing as many photos as I do.  Having the ability to easily organize, edit and share the thousands of photos I take is essential to what I do.  Photoshop Elements is my go to choice of editing software because it’s so user-friendly and it lets me make my photos pop.  I am loving Photoshop Elements 12 and I know you will too.  Mommy Ramblings thinks Photoshop Elements 12 make a great Holiday Gift for the photo moms, dads, sisters, brothers, daughters, sons and more on your gift list.  You can find Photoshop Elements 12 on our 2013 Holiday Gift Guide!!!

Photographer, author and educator Erin Manning provides her Top 3 Tips for capturing better baby photos.

Tamron AF 18-270mm f/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD AF Lens Review & Giveaway!!! {Giveaway Ended}

I was absolutely ecstatic when Tamron contacted me to do a review on their AF18-270mm f/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD AF Lens.  My Canon 60D is more like an extension of my arm.  Rarely, am I anywhere without my camera.  Most of the time I shoot with a 17-55mm, and zooming requires me to change to my 55-250 mm.  This is good, but not great when you are on the beach and don’t want to chance changing lenses with blowing sand and surf.  On our recent vacation, this was a huge hassle, because I either had to chance changing the lens or try to make it work with one or the other.  Now with this Tamron AF18-270mm f/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD AF Lens, I am able to have the best of both worlds in one lens.

One instance where this lens would have been great, was last year.  My friend and I were on a walk and saw a black bear that was down the road.  My Canon 17-55 mm could not make him more than a black blob in the distance.  This lens would have been perfect.  I took it out today and was very impressed with the lens.  First it is light, which is great because I usually walk with my camera.  I love the range, it really can’t be beat.  The images are sharp, crisp and well focused.  I would not use it as my portrait lens in my studio but as an all around lens, I am very impressed.  I cannot wait to really put this lens through the paces. I look forward to the ability to capture images that would have required me to change lenses.  If you are looking for a great all-purpose lens that will go the distance, then you should try the Tamron AF18-270mm f/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD AF Lens .  The auto focus works great and the vibration compensation mechanism is flawless.  Compatible mounts are Nikon, Canon and Sony.

At the other end of the soccer field.

Now you can without a doubt.

Much better!!!

He came all the way down, he gets some apples.

What’s that?

Aha!!!

What’s out there?

I can see clearly now.

Tamron AF18-270mm f/3.5-6.3 Di II VC PZD AF Lens for Canon

The Tamron AF18-270mm f/3.5-6.3 Di-II VC PZD AF Lens for Canon is a 15x high power zoom lens designed exclusively for digital SLR cameras using the more compact (APS-C) digital size image sensors. The focal length of this lens is equivalent to approx. 28-419mm in 35mm format. Designed as an “all-in-one” lens, it will meet almost all photographic opportunities without changing lenses.

The addition of PZD (Piezo Drive) ultrasonic autofocus motor helps make this lens lighter, short and slimmer than any previous lens in this category, and provides faster, quieter auto-focusing.

The VC (Vibration Compensation) mechanism allows the use of shutter speeds that are much slower than otherwise possible, with no perceptible increase in image blur. It automatically detects movement of the camera and compensates for camera shake when shooting a moving object. This feature is a must in a lens with this longer range of focal length.  This lens will focus down to 19.3″ (0.49 m) throughout the zoom range.

This lens is designed exclusively for DSLR cameras with smaller-size sensors. It is NOT compatible with 35mm film cameras and DSLR cameras with image sensors larger than 24 x 16mm.

Compact, lightweight 15x zoom lens
For use with Canon digital SLR cameras
For APS-C image sensor cameras
Vibration Compensation (VC) system is incorporated into the lens
A new level of compactness, performance, and speed is achieved with the addition of PZD (Piezo Drive), an innovative ultrasonic autofocus motor based on an advanced piezoelectric design
Special Glass Optimized for Digital SLR
Three hybrid aspherical lens elements and two LD (Low Dispersion) glass elements are used to accomplish effective compensation of on-axis and lateral chromatic aberrations, a critical factor to enhance the optical quality in digital photography.
Di-II Series Design
Design has been improved by adding a gold-colored band between the focus and zoom rings to enhance the appearance and make it stand out as a Di II lens. The rubber patterns of the zoom and focus control rings have been improved at the same time to compliment the digital camera design style and to provide better handling.
The Give-Away:
Tamron is sponsoring a giveaway on Mommy Ramblings.  One lucky blog reader will win their own Tamron AF18-270mm
f/3.5-6.3 Di-II VC PZD AF Lens.  Thank you Tamron for the review lens and for sponsoring this awesome giveaway on Mommy Ramblings!!!  Open to US Residents.
