Online image editors make sharing photos easier when traveling

When I travel, I like to upload photos to share with the folks back home. However, the computers at hotels or internet caf├ęs don't always have imaging software loaded on them.

That's where online image editors come in handy. There are many out there, but this year, Adobe Photoshop launched Photoshop Express, a pared down version of it's miraculous image editing software that costs hundreds of dollars to buy.

It may not have all the bells and whistles that the original program has, but you can upload, sort, resize, crop and store up to two gigabytes on the site for free. After that, you can share them on Flickr, Facebook, on a mobile phone or on a blog.

You can also find a list of other image editors here.

Photo appears in National Geographic Traveler magazine

My dream of being published in a National Geographic publication come true! A photo of mine appears in the November/December 2008 issue of National Geographic Traveler magazine.

The photo of an Argentine man grilling beef over an open flame, which originally appeared on this blog in April 2006 (click here to read the original entry), was chosen to illustrate a woman who describes her first Argentine asado (cookout).

Traveler's Senior Photo Editor Daniel R. Westergren found the image, of all places, on my Flickr page in late September. Flickr is a photo-sharing website, which hosts more than three billion images worldwide.

Many photographers believe they've reached the top when they've appeared in National Geographic. For me, this is just the beginning.
