    Picasa is really good for capturing still shots from video!

    • Wendy

      Thanks for the tip! 🙂

  • The recently enclosed all the seating at Cosmic Rays, so there’s no longer patio seating. 🙁

      Worst. News. Ever. But thanks for the heads up. I knew they were doing something over there, but I was hoping it wasn’t that. I’ll try to get over that before we return in December. Time to make new traditions, it seems! 🙂

  • It was great hearing about your process and all the ways you have documented your Disney trips. Your post about capturing that “we’re here!” moment is one of my favorites, so I was glad to hear you talk about that. So true. And I agree with @krizbee:disqus I have had great success with Picasa and getting still shots from videos. It is free through Google so you don’t have to make a big commitment to use it (we just happen to use it for all of our photo editing). Loved the podcast, nice job Wendy and Steph! 🙂

      Thanks! I’m hoping to work on that soon and I used to use Picasa for my photo editing, so I’ll have to play around with that. That “ugly cry” will be so much fun to show her when she’s a teenager. Hee hee!

    Very fun to hear Wendy! And I just love all your pages! I’m also a paper scrapper but have been too scared to buy any Project Mouse products just in case I can’t print them – looking at your pages, obviously you can! Thanks!

    I am two days out from our first trip as a family of four to WDW – trying so very hard to focus on work (and not doing a very good job) – anyway – just listened to this podcast for probably the third time, and got more great ideas for my Disney album (which I will be doing Pocket Pages with Project Mouse printed on epson presentation paper)! I am giddy at the thought of collecting all the bits of ephemera and I will be using the passporter’s guide as my play by play as well!
