RETIREMENT

I've been trying to put a picture of some of my kindle books on this blog. Not in a post, but on the side.  It can't be too hard because there are some people who do it who don't know that much about computers.  I want to be able to click on the picture and go straight to the source. Any easy help would be welcome.

I've also spent a lot of time redesigning one of my covers.  Also a mess. I know how to upload it but I can't get the cover itself right. How do you add something to a picture in Photoshop?  You have the picture there but now you want to add another picture within it. How?

Not knowing how to do these things is making me feel stupid and depressed.  Or am I depressed because it hasn't stopped raining for three days?

Or is it because my browser is constantly saying "not responding?"

I've signed up for a flash fiction piece and now I'm worried that I won't be able to do it.  It's been so long since I've written any kind of fiction.

This is my life in retirement.

I have a lot more time than a year ago and somehow I get a lot less done. Is this retirement or depression?

Hell yes you can do it, Sandra. Ready set...

Time seems to move faster when you retire. A race to the end?

Blessings in your retirement and post-retirement endeavors. Haven't seen or chatted up with you since my dapa days and your kind use of me in a book. Hope it all goes well. Roy Bobbin Hovey

Since I can't figure out Gimp, which is like photo shop, I use my ecover maker. It's at myecovermaker.com. You can use it for free to make the cover but have to pay $3.95 to download a cover, or you can pay $9.95 per month and do as many covers as you like. Since I usually mess up a cover or two before I get it right, I pay the $9.95 per month.

I use this system for my Kindle books and have had no problems.

thanks
