Midnight Collabor88 Rush and PSE Texture fun..

   The whole fashion blogging world is quite foreign to me, but oh so fun even for a newcomer. Collabor88's February Round is underway and I happily joined the throngs for the Midnight Rush. It was well worth it to see Designers, Bloggers and Shopoholics alike make it through jello-esque lag to get first dibs on this month's offerings...

   Closing out this post, I leave you with an Obscene Not For Profit Time Out (or end rather).
   Climbing the SL Photography Curve has been a struggle for me if it were not for the SL Community at large, especially those who make their Social Photo Sharing home. Very supportive to new picture/edit taker-ers, and not to mention some of the greatest artistic talent I've seen on the grid. Do visit sometime, and be sure to drink in Second Life like you've never seen before!

Gridlines, viewers, and Valentine's...

   So I think the pictures will speak for themselves. After reading and watching several  other tutorials about a well known SL Photographer-plague-OMG headache-issue, I decided to opt  for this option. Granted its an old bug, I am still glad that this option, worked out for the epic conundrum.

   None of the above images above were edited with the exception of cropping and additional text layers..(oh and all that pretty background stuff. You can see that with each increase in resolution, the accursed gridlines did not make their debut.
   I don't want to take the time to go into the "why's" and "how come it didn't work for me's", but I will say that while TPV's have a great deal more to offer than what LL provides, this tiling issue at least on my end is no longer a problem when I use the Beta Viewer. So THANK YOU, LL for getting this fixed, well done and thank you to the lovely Strawberry Singh for getting the word out!

   It's a slow climb up the SL Photography curve but I'm up for the challenge! And for those of you lurking behind the screen, if you're itching to try, remember, you are not alone :)
