  1. Love your treatment of this shot, I put captions under pictures, how do you paste over picture.
    Love your politics

    • Thanks for the second line. I dont have photoshop, but this is what I used for this picture, border was done in windows paint, desaturation done in gimp, caption was done in fotoflexer.

      These are what I use to make images, each have different things that others don’t, this is not an endorsement, it’s just what I use:
      GIMP (free download, can seem complicated at first) – adding new effects frequently, so I think its new
      fotoflexer – an almost exact clone of photobucket, which I believe is now owned by Rupert Murdoch

      -99 for Turn Left

  2. Love it! So Phoney Tony!

  3. Captures the persona of this megalomaniac perfectly. Great work!
