Check Your Camera Settings!


Yesterday I made another version of Monday's card post for the additional late birthday and after taking  photos of the card I immediately put it under the door of the person so as not to be even later in giving it to her.

Last night when I loaded the photos on my computer I could not believe how dark they were! It was a thunderstorm day but never had any of my photos been this weird looking! Well, to make a long story short, somehow the dial on my camera was turned to Night Portrait! I had quick checked the photos in the camera and they had looked ok - not so! I tweaked the best photo so I was able to show you the card in as close to the true colors as I could and here it is. It still hurts the eyes to look at it! Lesson learned: Do NOT give away card until you view the photos of it on your computer!

Thank you for stopping by today to visit my blog! Lots of sunshine here in this part of WI - with lots of humidity! Wishing you a day of cool breezes!

Wow Barbara for having this set on "night setting" you really did a fabulous job of tweeking the settings. A very cheery design!

You did a great job of lightening up the photo, if you hadn't told us about the error, I never would have known! I've done that before too though, and I hate it! I had some very cute pictures of my fiance and I that someone else took on my camera - but I'd left it in manual mode so the exposure is all messed up! I was so sad when I saw them on the computer the next day!

I love your card though, the colors are so bright and lovely!

What a fun card. I love the paper in the background.

I'm so bad, I don't even know what half the settings are on my camera. Lol.

Yes. Have done that also. So very annoying when it happens. Your card is cute with the bears. Hope your weather improves for you soon. Hugs Mrs A.
