ARGH!

i had hoped to get all the photos from the peru trip up this weekend
reality is
i didn't even really start working on the project til friday
and quickly became daunted with executing it..

sure
2800 photos is a lot to go through
but only a few to be cut out
rotated...
this isn't the time to go through and crop and balance, etc...
just put them up..

WELL

i thought i'd do it through Photoshop (7)
and it just didn't do what i wanted...
the only slide show feature it had
had no stop button!
and most of the screen sizes were tremendously off
plus
there was no way to directly link to a full size image

i was dissapointed and frustrated.

so i looked through other things i had on my computer:

the dreamweaver was missing components
sutterbug needed to be registered for output
graphic converter was even more lame
iPhoto is pathetic, and only compatible with .Mac
... and none of them REALLY did what i wanted.

so
this morning the idea occurred to me
to look into the software that comes with my domain package...
AND I FOUND IT!
... through a cheezzee corporate kinda display
but exactly what i wanted otherwise
... however
after i took the time to set it all up
it didn't work.

frustrated as hell
i downloaded all sorts of modules
trying to figure out how to install them
and getting way over my head with Net stuff i don't really understand
(which is alright.. most of life is over my head and i don't really understand it..
but interracting with it actualizes me into awareness of it: Thus Understanding.)
so i muddled along
and by the time Leo was ready to go
i... wasn't.

However
i just got to the Hermitage about an hour ago
sorted through my old APS (Advantix) photo cartridges to take into town tomorrow to get them turned into Photo CDs
when i thought i would look on line to see if i could get a cheaper deal

slow dial-up up here...
and No.
the corporate chains i've looked into all have the same basic price of $3.99 a CD
and that was the best i could fine on line was well

HOWEVER
in the process
i went to go look at my gallery software again
and realized that
the fuddling around i did with it earlier today turned OFF the broken module
which left one of the working ones as the only activated module...
and it worked!

so i have my test album and the first day of photos up
results at
http://www.dominicvine.net/gallery/

there will be no DSL til tuesday night in SF (if i'm lucky)
if not
wednesday night (in NYC!)

so if i can get through the rest of the albums
rotating and deleting...
i should be able to upload them all
and post them..

more here when it happens.

... tell me what you think!
