piZap Collage


I just want to share this new application that I discovered.  Perhaps, others have long been using this free on-line Photo Editor.  I find Photoshop difficult to swallow, so I have been using my Scrapbooking ACDSee Editor which is easier to navigate.  But if I am in the office, I could not use it also because it is not compatible with our Office System which is Ubunto.

I stumbled on this free online photo editor called piZap.  You can make collages, tweak on photos, put some frames and other easy to follow features.

Therefore, the next thing there is to do, is to show my collage.  I just love to feature our Family Outing/Island Hopping last March 25, 2012.  I did a post on this at Side B.  There are still lots of pictures because there were a handful of cameras clicking around during the event.

It was a lot of fun, as the motorized pump boat skimmed on clear waters to hover on islets scattered around our Cebu Province area.  Some islets were inhabited, others privately owned, still others have just bobbed up on surface.  There were beautiful sand bars which would submerged during high tide.  The best fun is the reunion, a time for updating with each other's experiences, swimming and eating together.  

This was a celebration for Mama and Jay's home visit this year.  Some fun huh!

Some story for my new project..... piZap collage.

    Thank you for sharing this!!!

    They are your blessings Lolita!


  2. Thank you, Martha.

    Yes, they are.

  3. I love your collage! I used to make collages by hand (true cutting and pasting) when I was a teen into adulthood.

    I will check out your new app.

    Love getting to "meet" your family, Lolita. And Benita is precious! How long are Jay and Benita with you for? Enjoy every moment!

    God bless your family!

    I am always looking forward to their annual homecoming. They are going to stay until April 16th. They arrived last March 23... some 23 days holiday for them. Today is the graduation day of our niece Jay sent to college. She graduates from Nursing College. She is the 3rd member of nephews and nieces he helped thru school. Another one is a 3rd year taking up Hotel & Restaurant Management.

    He is a very kind uncle.

    And he dotes on Mama as she does him. I really thank God for him and for taking care of our precious Mama.... I am so happy to see her happy and going to other step-children in Canada gives her a lot of places to go, even in her age.

  5. What a beautiful collage, Lolita! And I loved discovering your Side B blog! What a cool cool name for a second blog! love it!
