Daddy Ron decided it was time for a new header and here are the steps he went through to achieve the final choice....

First: Choose a photo that is appealing...

Secondly: Give it a pop of brightness....

Thirdly: Slightly distort the image, in this case with a crystalizing effect....

Fourthly: Fine tune the photo with a slight change in the size of the crystallizing effect....and add some natural 'look' from the original photo....

Fifthly: Choose a font and colour....

'Et Voila' .... the choice is made......


  1. Hello Sophie! What a beautiful Labradoodle you are! Thanks for popping over and leaving a kind comment on my blog. You have a really lovely one here. i'll be calling in again soon, to see what you have been up to. Ros.... and Oscar

  3. HI Sophie....take it from a kitty your header is
    purrfect!!! But the best thing in it is YOUR lovely face.

  4. PS Sophie
    Mom keeps forgetting to tell you we have a Labradoodle living across the street from us.
    His name is Biscuit. He is about the color of a purrfectly cooked Southern biscuit too.
    Oh and to continue on the food theme his next door neighbor is a mix breed named Waffle. MOL
    Mom and I think those names are too funny.

  5. Wow, I wish I knew how to do that!! It looks great!

  7. That's cool! Sophie, even more beautiful, is that possible?

  8. Like the new header & pic. Good job. We been trying to get Mom to change our header picture.
    Don't think she'll get that fancy tho.

  9. And, a beautiful choice it is! Though, of course, Sophie, any picture with you in it would be gorgeous.

  10. Cute as you are, all that extra stuff isn't really necessary (hope I didn't make Daddy Ron mad now).--Inger

  11. Just when I thought you couldn't possibly be any more beautiful, your Daddy puts this header up.

  12. Thanks for being our no.70!

    I love this new header picture, although you lost me after the crystalising effect in the fourth step. oh well. It's a great header pic!

  13. And a lovely one it is, too. In case you didn't see, you have an award at my blog. Didn't get to finish telling everyone yesterday. Have a great weekend.

  14. Hey Guys and Gals....easy to do this kinda of stuff with an editing program...Picasa or Picnik...try it!

  15. Well hello there, Sophie! Great pic!

    You're welcome out back at my house anytime. Molly and Jethro are allowed with the chickens, because I have one little hen that puts them in their place!


This 'DOODLE' is looking forward to your comment....don't be shy...all I do is SNIFF & LICK!
