Darrell is such a whizz on the computer and is always looking at new fun things to do, but when he found this page http://www.kodak.com/global/mul/consumer/print/thebigapp/ there has been no doing with him ….. I have never known him so rapt!
It’s all a bit beyond me, but Darrell said this Big App that he had found from Kodak lets you upload your photos/images which are then broken up and printed out into larger than life versions ….. and he was very excited by the prospect of seeing how he looked “larger than life”
Needless to say, before you could say ….. “CHEESE” Darrell had uploaded his favourite picture of himself, …..
……… and turned it into a maahoosive image …….
It looked very complicated to me, but Darrell said it was “Easy peasy, lemon squeezy!” He said all he had to do was select his picture of choice via browse (or use one of Kodak's images), download it, choose the size he wanted his image to be and create a PDF which was then saved onto our computer ready to print off. Simples!
He said he had left the white border on, because it looked more artistic, but you didn’t have to if you didn’t want to. He then proceeded to lay it all out on the floor, very carefully, humming away happily as he worked! What is he like?
I am OK with it being laid out on the floor for five minutes or so for novelties sake …. but I am pretending that I didn’t hear him musing that he wants to sticky tape it all together and put it on the chimney breast in the lounge …. for
prosperity, posterity …… for something like that , because much as I love his little chutchy face, I can’t be looking at a 3ft x 3ft version of it while I am trying to watch X Factor or Coronation Street, it would be just too distracting!
