Steph:
Hey everyone, welcome to Capturing Magic. I’m Steph Clay and I’m here today with Heather Winfield who can be found at heatherw.com/character. Hi Heather.

Heather:
Hi.

Steph:
You’re HeatherW25 on all social media.

Heather:
Yeah.

Steph:
Then we also have Tanya Hickman who can be found at everymagicmoment.com. She is TanyaH666 on all social media.

Tanya:
Yep.

Steph:
Yay! Thank you for being here. I got it all right! We’ve been chatting about Disneyland Paris, your epic adventure, the two of you. One of the things that I wanted to talk to you about, of course since this is Capturing Magic, is how you’re going to document this trip. Have you guys, I know that you’ve thought about it and I know you’ve talked about it.

Tanya:
We’ve more fretted about it.

Heather:
How are we going to do this?

Steph:
Going into the trip, did you have a plan in mind?

Heather:
No.

Tanya:
No, no. It was take as many photos as possible, deal with it later.

Steph:
Right. What have you talked about doing?

Tanya:
Right now, it’s Instagram and Facebook. When I post, I used to post to Instagram and Facebook at the same time, but then I realized that literally nobody wants to see my posts five times because they go to Twitter as well and it’s just ridiculous. I post everything on Instagram, which sends it to Twitter automatically, and then I wait until I finish a full day’s worth of photos or a full trip day worth of photos, because that could take a week to post it out, on Instagram and then I take all those photos and I stick them into one album on Facebook. You can go to my Paris album on Facebook and see all the photos that I’ve posted. Some of them are Instagram photos, some of them are just the normal photos depending on how I decided to do that. Sometimes I don’t like the way they crop on Instagram.

That’s what I’m doing right now. I came home, I sorted through all the photos, I picked out the good ones that I wanted to post. Heather and I spent a week transferring photos to one another. That takes a long time. I sort through my photos, I get rid of the bad ones, Heather does not.

Heather:
I don’t, no.

Tanya:
She [crosstalk 00:02:34].

Heather:
I have almost 12,000 pictures that I took.

Steph:
Wow!

Tanya:
Where I probably had like 6,000 photos that I whittled down to 3,000 photos. I get rid of the bad ones. Heather doesn’t. Not that her photos are bad, they’re fine, but I’ve just started going through her photos because I want to put them into my Google Photos so I can get the animations and stuff, but I’m just like, “Oh my gosh, how did she snap 45 photos of this one scene from a princess show?” It is literally like I could make a flip book.

Steph:
An animation.

Tanya:
Yeah!

Heather:
I’m going to be posting those princess pictures for years.

Tanya:
Yeah, I’ve been starting to go through her photos. Usually when she comes to Disneyland, I don’t need her scenery photos because I have enough of my own scenery photos from Disneyland. I just have her send me photos that have people in them, like us in them. This time I was like, “I need all the photos.” We spent a long time transferring photos.

Steph:
Tell us how you transferred them.

Tanya:
We do it all through Dropbox.

Steph:
Dropbox, okay.

Heather:
Except there was a problem with mine.

Tanya:
Free Dropbox, not even paid Dropbox, the free Dropbox.

Heather:
There was something going on with mine. Normally you just put it in there and it shows up on my computer, but it was just not working so we had to do it where she would upload it and then I had to go to the site and download it. I could only download, if it was too big it wouldn’t let me do it. It took a lot of time.

Tanya:
[crosstalk 00:04:12] when I was sending her my photos. I had to do, what, 40 photos at a time?

Heather:
Mm-hmm (affirmative).

Tanya:
The things we do!

Heather:
Thankfully, the other way around it worked okay because we would still be doing this years from now.

Tanya:
Yeah, I don’t know what the deal was.

Heather:
It’s weird because it worked for me otherwise. For some reason, it would show up on the site, it would show up if I looked in the app, but on my computer it would say it’s done and it was not there.

Tanya:
We’ve gotten pretty good at the Dropbox thing but when we’re in the parks, we have pretty much worked out the kind of system where I know Heather’s going to take an exceedingly obscene amount of photos. I will take a couple photos of whatever we’re watching and then I’ll switch to video.

Steph:
Oh, that’s a great idea.

Tanya:
Because I know she’s taking a ridiculous amount of photos.

Heather:
I have a lot of videos now also of the princess show. It’s great.

Tanya:
You can hear her camera clicking the entire time in my videos. When I was transferring stuff to her, I had 25, 30 gigs worth of video alone. It was crazy, but everything’s transferred now so we have everything. Google Photos, everything is getting uploaded to Google Photos now. We do that now for sure.

Steph:
Good.

Tanya:
Because we are obsessed with the animations.

Steph:
I know, aren’t they fun?

Heather:
I can really [inaudible 00:05:41] princess show animations.

Tanya:
I noticed with this trip, because I only really upload Disney photos to Google Photos, and I noticed with this trip that they do animations from video now.

Steph:
Yes.

Tanya:
I’m super excited about that because they’re super smooth animations.

Steph:
Yeah, and then I think you can download them now as well in a video format so that you can share them on Instagram.

Tanya:
Awesome. Yeah, I was excited to see that. We’ve gotten some good. I don’t know about anybody else but I am obsessed with the stylized photos and it’s been giving me some good castle ones.

Steph:
Oh I bet.

Tanya:
I don’t know why I’m obsessed with those. I actually wish there was a setting in Google Photos, listen to this, Google Photos. I want a setting where I can be like, “Give me more of stylized photos.” It doesn’t give me enough of those.

Steph:
Do you save them every time?

Tanya:
I do.

Heather:
I do too, yeah.

Tanya:
I absolutely save them. I think after I finish with my normal photos from this trip, I’m going to go back through all my Disney photos and start posting stylized photos and animations and all the stuff that it’s given me.

Steph:
Fun.

Tanya:
I don’t save the collages usually, because usually they don’t make sense.

Steph:
Yeah, I don’t save the collages either.

Tanya:
Sometimes they do. My favorite is when it’s like three edits, and I’m like, “Oh, that’s cool. There’s me with the shiny face and there’s me without a shiny face.” Every once in a while there’s one or two that I’ll come across, I’ll be like, “Okay, that one makes sense,” and I’ll save those but I don’t really save the collages.

Instagram, Facebook, Google Photos, transferring photos. That’s the first steps for me.

Heather:
When we’re in the park too, we use the Airdrop now.

Tanya:
Oh yeah, we are all about Airdrop now!

Steph:
Airdrop is great.

Tanya:
Yeah, I don’t know why we didn’t use that as much before. I think I always forget about it until somebody reminds of it because I don’t keep my Bluetooth on. That’s not something I keep on all the time.

Heather:
Yeah, me too.

Tanya:
I forget about it. Especially being with a group of people, we were all about Airdrop this time. If you had Airdrop on, we were receiving photos all day long.

Steph:
That’s awesome.

Heather:
There’s no wifi in the park. The service there was really bad, so that was definitely the way to go.

Tanya:
Even in the hotel.

Heather:
Yeah, the wifi was awful.

Tanya:
Even in the hotel, the wifi there in France, period, is awful. Awful.

Heather:
I actually got data on my phone to use and so I had eight gigs and at the end of the month I had used 7.86. I just made it!

Steph:
Wow! That’s funny.

Tanya:
Yeah, it was a bit of a bummer, the wifi situation. Because I was like, “Oh, well we’ll have wifi at the hotel, Starbucks has wifi.” No. No, no, no. I was able to FaceTime better not using the wifi than I was using the wifi. I don’t know, it was weird.

Steph:
Interesting. That’s good to know. Don’t plan on wifi when you go to Disneyland Paris!

Tanya:
Yeah, it was really hard to use. I have Sprint so I was able to, I didn’t have to call them or anything, I just enable global roaming on my phone which means I can use as much data as I want, I just can’t make actual phone calls. I can but they’re going to be like 20 cents a minute or something like that. I could use FaceTime, I could send text messages, I could do all that.

Steph:
That’s nice. That’s really nice.

Tanya:
Heather was able to do $10 a day for her normal, how her phone number works for everything.

Heather:
Yeah, so I got the data because I normally have six gigs. My mom and I share a thing so I just upped that to eight. I had unlimited text and that data and calls, so it was just like normal.

Steph:
That’s great. Are you on AT&T?

Heather:
I’m on Verizon.

Steph:
Yeah, the international plans do seem to be just be getting better and better I think.

Tanya:
Yeah, and I wish at least one of us had tried it, we didn’t because we didn’t know, to pick up a mobile hotspot to see how that would have worked. Because we’ve read things where people, that’s what they do. There was actually when I left the airport here, there was a vending machine that had them for $10 a day.

Steph:
Oh wow.

Tanya:
I was like, “Oh, no I can’t. I don’t know how it works. How do I return it?” I didn’t have time to look into it. I think that’s a pretty viable option, to have your own wifi.

Steph:
Then what? You’ve transferred photos and stuff.

Tanya:
We transfer photos, getting them posted to social media, and now is the process of, “What am I going to do with them? What kind of book am I going to make?” We’ll never be able to do the traditional digital scrapbooking route as much as I want to because for me it will never get finished that way, for sure. It will never get finished that way. Because this is such a major trip and I have so many photos, I think I’m going to have to go the way of, and I’ve talked about it before, the way I did my Walt Disney World book with the, I forget what it was called.

Steph:
With Janet’s class?

Tanya:
With Janet’s class, yeah.

Steph:
I don’t know if it’s available anymore, actually.

Tanya:
I don’t know.

Steph:
I’ll go over there and check and see.

Tanya:
I don’t know if it is either. I feel like it maybe isn’t.

Steph:
I agree, but go check. I mean you keep talking and I’ll go check.

Tanya:
I feel like this is something that you don’t necessarily need the class for. I can kind of walk you through it a little bit.

Steph:
Yeah, it’s not available anymore.

Tanya:
Let’s find a workaround, then. All you need to do is if you’re going to do something digitally like that, is actually you can use the Project Life app, you can use any collage app.

Steph:
That’s what I was going to say.

Tanya:
Literally any collage app because I don’t add cards or anything. It was just straight up photos. I did straight up photos. You would use templates to plop in all your photos. I left one of those spaces open for journaling, just solid white borders around all the photos, grid style, and I did that the whole way through my book. The only perk that Janet had in that class was that she gave you printouts for you to write how many photos you wanted on this page and here are the templates to have that many photo spots. Even though because I know how to work Photoshop and digital scrapbooking software, I was able to modify those templates to my needs. They didn’t have to stay the way they were.

Steph:
Yeah, it came with a packet of templates and then it came with a guide. You could say, “Okay, I’ve got this many in landscape, this many horizontal,” and it would tell you which pages you could use, which templates you could use.

Tanya:
My Walt Disney World book, once I buckled down and sat down and only worked on that, it took me a week. I think I had that book done in a week. Those pictures I had sat on for five years, not knowing what to do with them, I had done in a week. I actually think the Project Life app would be a really good way to go with that.

Steph:
I agree.

Tanya:
As far as plop and go.

Steph:
I agree.

Tanya:
Especially because you can print those out at eight by eight and 12 by 12 now. I mean you always could but you can print them in bigger sizes. That was one of the reasons I always went just with Photoshop so they would be printable sizes, but now you can print that size through apps all the time.

Steph:
Yes you can. You can do 10 by 10 too in books. Then Becky announced, or I think it was actually her app team announced on one of their Facebook Lives that they’re adding 10 by 10 printing in the app as well as albums and page protectors.

Tanya:
Nice.

Steph:
Yeah. There’s another app that I think would work great as well that lots of people are starting to use. It’s called, I don’t know how to say it for sure.

Tanya:
Moldiv, Mol-dive, right?

Steph:
Moldiv I think is how I’ve been saying it in my head, which is like an auto-collage template. You pick your photos or you pick your template and then you can pick your photos and then you can automatically rotate, have it shuffle the photos to different spots, which is kind of cool. Then it has shadows and you can change the thickness of borders and you can even, the template spots, you can change the sizes and everything.

Tanya:
I played with that app for a second when you told us about it and I did like that it fit the photos into appropriately sized spots. I liked that. No, “Oh, is this photo too long, is it going to go here?” It was like, no, it fit it where it needed to go. That was kind of nice.

Steph:
It is, I agree.

Tanya:
I think that’s what I’m going to do. I can’t see any other real viable options. It’s not like a Disneyland trip that I do all the time or just a day trip. It’s a big trip so I want it to be a big book.

Steph:
It could be a once in a lifetime. You never know.

Tanya:
Exactly. It’s going to be a good book. I’m going to have to take my time. It’s probably going to take some time, but yeah, I think that’s the way I’m going to go.

Steph:
That’s exciting though, I think. You’ve figured it out.

Tanya:
I have a plan.

Steph:
Yes, you have a plan. I’m excited about that. Heather, what about you?

Heather:
I have no idea. I’m still, you know I went on the cruise and so I still want to do a book from that. I’ve done like, what, six or seven albums from that?

Steph:
You still want to do digital scrapbooking because that’s what you love.

Heather:
Yeah, but I haven’t been able to do it as much, so I don’t really know and I don’t know if I can, because I still definitely want to do it for that one. Because I have all these cruise kits and everything like that, so that one, I definitely need to do that. I did that with my mom and I’d love to be able to have something and she could have a copy of it. I don’t know. This [inaudible 00:16:13] may be different. I was joking, I was like I should have Tanya do the book and then just print out another copy and then not have to worry about it.

I really don’t know. I’ve been posting. When I was on the trip, I know Tanya didn’t post as much but I was probably posting more on Instagram. Then she always goes and when she posts it, she puts it back in order even though we’re home. I really should do that but I don’t. I did that for the cruise and it worked.

Tanya:
Let me flop in there real quick. Heather posts when we’re on trips. She’s really good, especially character photos. She’s really good about posting over there. I am not. You’ll get the random character selfie from me. You’ll maybe get one to two photos a day from me and they’re usually ones that were taken on my phone. Nothing from my camera. Heather will transfer photos from her camera, like good character photos to post, so I’m really bad about that. I just went back and looked and I maybe have like 15 to 20 photos that I posted from the entire trip while we were there. She’s really good about that. I go back after I’ve sorted through everything and I transfer everything to my phone and then I start posting them in order. They’re all in order. Go ahead, sorry.

Heather:
Yeah, which is really the good way to do it because I did that when I went on the cruise because I couldn’t post when I was on the cruise. When I came back and then I went home and I did that same thing where it went in order and it made my brain feel like, “Okay, I know what I’m doing.”

Tanya:
I have major OCD when it comes to posting in order.

Heather:
Now I don’t know and so I’m just randomly posting. I know I have so many pictures. I’ve sorted my pictures but like Tanya said, I don’t delete pictures so I don’t even really know where to begin. That’s why I keep posting from the same couple of things I went on and I’m like, “I probably should be posting these things.” I don’t know. I’m just going to be posting forever. I’m going to Disney World in a week so then I’ll have a temporary break from those.

Tanya:
I started going through Heather’s photos because I don’t need all of her photos. I just told her to send them so she didn’t have to weed through them. I’ve picked one folder. It had, like, say it was 50 photos in it. I whittled it down to one. One photo that I was like, “Okay, I’ll keep this one.” Then I was like, “Wait, where’d all the, I don’t need any of those other photos apparently!” I don’t know, I just keep the ones that I think that maybe I’ll use on a scrapbook layout so I don’t need 50 of the same, them rotating and spinning in a show. They’re good for the animations. Actually I kept them for the animations but I separated them, ones that I would use for scrapbooking purposes.

Steph:
Right.

Tanya:
Go ahead. No offense to your photos.

Heather:
I know. Stuff feels the same when it’s me, I think, that you don’t want to get rid of pictures. I don’t know what I’m going to need them for. You never know.

Steph:
Yeah, I rarely delete. It’s the truth.

Heather:
It’s hard for me to figure out what I’m still posting now that I’m home. Because when I was there, yeah, I definitely like to post character pictures because that’s my thing and then some couple of pictures. I still have so much I need to post and share and I just don’t even know where to randomly post from it. I don’t even know what I’m doing with that. Because we’re talking about doing a Chatbook, but that would have to be several of them because I’ve posted more than 60 pictures even when it was there, I think. I’m not really sure exactly.

Steph:
Did you say with a Chatbook by hashtag? Can you rearrange those yet, or no?

Heather:
Yeah, you can.

Steph:
Okay, see, that was always my biggest pet peeve with Chatbooks, is like if you went from your Instagram feed, they went in order and you weren’t able to rearrange them. Again, they would be out of order and it would drive me nuts. That was the only reason I never pursued doing a Chatbook at first, something like that.

Heather:
I really like that. You also can upload pictures and use them. The only thing I’ve done with the Chatbooks so far is I run Disney pictures. Sometimes I hadn’t posted, say like my bib picture because I don’t post them all the time but I could upload it from my phone and it would be in the book. They do that for everything. When you have a hashtag, and you could do from more than one account, so we could always do some kind of book from both of our Instagram accounts too.

Steph:
Interesting.

Heather:
I haven’t really gotten to the point where I know what I’m doing. I did use the system that Tanya used for her Disney World book. I used that for, again, this is how many pictures I take. I did it for 24 hour day so it was from one day. I did a whole book from that, and Tanya’s thing was the whole trip. It’s just so hard for me to whittle down the pictures, but I did it for that and even that still took me a while. I had a deadline because there was a sale, so I was like, “I need to finish it by then!” It did finally print. I don’t know if I should do something like that. I don’t know. I just feel bad because things aren’t printed, so it’d be nice to have something concrete. You always like looking through books.

Steph:
That’s for sure.

Tanya:
I love looking at that Disney World book. I look at it all the time.

Steph:
Yeah, I love looking at them too. I was thinking, sorry, that’s why I went silent because I can’t think and talk at the same time. I think often we think that it’s just kids that want to look at the albums, but no, I love to look at them too. I think it’s great to hear both of you saying that you love to look at something printed as well.

Tanya:
I like to show it to people that have no interest in it and I’m like, “Look at my book!” They’re like, “Oh my God.” That’s my favorite thing to do.

Steph:
Funny.

Tanya:
It’s like showing people that don’t care about your kids pictures of your kids or your dog.

Steph:
Yes.

Tanya:
“Look at my trip to Disney World that you weren’t on and don’t care about!”

Steph:
Okay, so Heather, you’re not going to do Chatbooks because it’s not going to work out.

Heather:
It probably [inaudible 00:22:26].

Steph:
If it weren’t for a time issue, you would most likely do digital scrapbooking because that’s what you love.

Heather:
Yeah, that’s always what I like to do. It’s, I don’t know, not really fancier but like a nicer way to do it than just collaging. I do like doing the whole pocket style. That’s what I always liked with it, even back to my regular scrapbooking days. Pocket style too, I like doing that. I guess I kind of do that a little faster but still, I’m such a perfectionist when it comes to these things. I want it to be exactly right. It’s so hard for me to just be like-

Steph:
Because you pocket scrapbook but you still add the extra scrapbooking stuff to it. It’s not just the pockets.

Heather:
Yeah. I don’t just be like, “I just put my pictures in a thing.” It’s so hard for me to be like, “Well now I want to put this one in and then I have to open it in,” you know. I don’t know. It’s so hard for my mind to just be like, “Go there and do,” you know? Even when I tried to make a collage just from the day, like I’ve been doing the picture a day thing for years now. When I go on a trip like this and it’s so hard for me to even, I can’t just pick one picture so I make a collage of how many pictures. I haven’t even done that for most of that trip yet.

Tanya:
I did that. I forgot I did that too. You used the Collect app, right?

Heather:
Yeah.

Tanya:
Yeah, I do that too. I’ve done the photo a day for a couple of years now. Until recently, I didn’t even realize that I should be using a collage for a day like that instead of picking one photo. For my photo a day and for anything I use in the Collect app, even our trip that we just went on, which I did collages for for each day, I only used phone photos. I won’t use anything from my camera. I’ll only use phone photos. Luckily I had lots of pictures from each day from my phone, but I only use phone photos for the photo of the day stuff.

Heather:
I transfer a lot of my pictures. Even if I haven’t posted them, I still transfer a lot of them and so I have a ton of pictures on my phone. That’s how I make the collage from that generally. A lot of times I’ll and I’ll put the pictures from my camera, like I’ll stick it in Dropbox to get it on my phone. I don’t know.

Steph:
Yeah, we got to figure something out for you.

Heather:
I know, I need to think of that. Because I have to have something. Like you said, it’s like a once in a lifetime trip and it’s just so many pictures. I don’t even know where to start.

Steph:
I know, because I hear you.

Heather:
I do have them all on the Google Photos, you know that.

Steph:
Right, yeah. Some of the things that I loved about digital scrapbooking was getting in there and tweaking the drop shadows. I loved that detail and making it look fabulous, but I don’t love the time that it took and that’s why I moved, because it just doesn’t fit with my life anymore right now. That’s why I’ve moved on, is because it used to take me three hours to do one page in Photoshop.

Tanya:
Three hours? That’s fast!

Steph:
Right? I know! Now I can get one page done, if it’s taking me a long time, it’s 15 minutes.

Tanya:
Right? I think I might, depending on, I don’t know. I have to look. My issue with, and this isn’t even really an issue. I don’t even know why I’m calling it an issue. It’s not an issue. I want to use the Project Life app. I think I might try to go that route this time. My issue is in my head I feel like I need to edit the photos in Photoshop, not on my phone, which is weird to me because I edit them on my phone to post to Instagram, so why can’t I? For some reason in my mind for a printable version, I feel like I need to edit them in Photoshop. That’s just an added process.

Steph:
Right!

Tanya:
To put them on the computer, do them in Photoshop, get them back on my phone and then I have all those photos on my phone and you know that drives me nuts. I don’t know. I have to find a balance with how I get Project Life to work for me

Steph:
Yeah, for sure.

Tanya:
As far as editing photos.

Steph:
For sure, and that was actually a stumbling block for me, period, with photos. For a long time, I wouldn’t share photos with anybody until I had had time to go through and edit them in Photoshop, which hardly ever happened. My in laws had a 50th wedding anniversary recently and I just sent them a whole bunch of photos for it and they were like, “Why haven’t we ever seen these photos before?” I feel horrible because I finally, moving to my iPhone as my primary camera got me over that thinking. Thinking that I needed to edit it in Photoshop, because I can do pretty much everything that I want to do editing wise now on my phone and be happy with it now.

Tanya:
Yes. I do that. I find myself now more when I edit a photo on Photoshop and I think I like the way it looks on my phone better when I edit it on my phone. I can hear myself saying that a lot, but at the same time I’ve never actually printed those photos that I’ve edited on my phone. In my mind I feel like I don’t know if they would look as good. They look good on my phone but are they going to look good printed? It’s probably just all in my head, they probably look fine. Nobody’s going to care. That’s something that I just kind of need to obstacle over or do it all and have it printed just so I can see what it looks like, a different book.

Steph:
Test it, yeah.

Tanya:
Yeah, a test book.

Steph:
Not even a book, you could even just do some prints.

Tanya:
Yeah, just some prints. Just ease of mind.

Steph:
I think that’s a good idea.

Tanya:
Because it’s really easy to edit photos on the phone now.

Steph:
So easy, and now with the PicTapGo being incorporating into the Project Life app on iOS, it’s super slick. It’s super slick, but PicTapGo is not my favorite photo editing app.

Tanya:
It’s not mine either.

Heather:
It used to be.

Tanya:
Yeah, it used to be, I used to love it, but now I stick with mostly Snapseed and even a lot of the time just the built in photo editor.

Steph:
That’s what I use the most.

Tanya:
I like that one too.

Steph:
I like it a lot, especially for when you just to lighten up shadows. If you have someone who’s face is darker but the background’s brighter, just lightening up the shadows, I really love on the iPhone the default editor. I do love Snapseed too. I like Snapseed better than I like PicTapGo. This is coming from somebody who, PicTapGo is made by Totally Rad and I have been a Totally Rad product user since about 2005, 2004.

Tanya:
I love them.

Steph:
Yeah, I love their products, I really do, but it’s not my favorite photo editing app. I think a lot of their filters are super harsh, and yes, you can tone them down but once you add filters on top of each other it just looks over processed, I think a lot of times.

Heather:
I use Lightroom and the Photoshop a lot on the phone. It actually got me to, because I had had such an old version of Photoshop and using it on my phone and loving it, it actually got me to subscribe to the new Lightroom and Photoshop on the computer.

Steph:
That’s interesting. That’s really good for Photoshop.

Heather:
Yeah!

Steph:
There are a lot of people that use Lightroom on their phones, I know. I’ve been hearing. I haven’t tried it for photo editing. I should try it. It’s so easy to get stuck in a rut, the things that you know and use and that’s what you [crosstalk 00:30:56].

Tanya:
I try different things. I will always, like I have one scenery shot on my phone that I always keep there to try out in photo apps. Like, “If it can make this picture look good,” you know?

Steph:
That’s a great idea.

Tanya:
I always do that. It’s always the same and I always end up defaulting back to Snapseed, always. Always try the other apps, I like trying new apps.

Steph:
Yeah, that’s a great idea. Okay, we’re going to figure something out for Heather. I’m determined, but I also know that Heather doesn’t like to do new things so I might fail.

Tanya:
This is true, this is true.

Steph:
The fact that Heather’s using Google Photos, I feel that’s a major success, major win.

Tanya:
That’s like a major milestone right there.

Heather:
I still keep being confused. I’m like, “If I delete this, is it going,” because I accidentally uploaded things I didn’t want to upload, like my editing folder for my character site. I have a thousand versions of the pictures before they, it’s like I don’t want that up there and I was able to, thankfully Tanya told me how to see which ones that I had uploaded so I able to delete them all. I’m like, “They’re not going to delete from my computer, right?” Still paranoid about that.

Steph:
It’s a common thing. You’re not alone in that most people get confused about it. It’s a confusing thing. For real.

Tanya:
You would think they would just make an option. Make it an option.

Steph:
I agree.

Tanya:
If I hit delete, delete from my phone, or uncheck the box and don’t delete it from my phone. Whatever.

Steph:
I agree, I agree. All righty, let’s remind our listeners where to find us. Tanya?
