What insane idiot decides that the computer has the right to “make my photos better” when they are downloaded?? Yes I can change that setting but not until I actually knows this is what the computer will do. Of course it should have popped up a little note on the screen before the photos were downloaded that I could choose that as an option! So suddenly all my photos were very bright and those showing the sky showed a clear blue one instead of the dark grey we actually had here!!!
But firstly I had a big problem finding the photos at all. I saw how the computer downloaded them but I couldn’t find them anywhere and neither could the computer when I searched for them :-) It took me several tries until they showed in the photo program but I still couldn’t find a folder so I easily could find them again. I downloaded them to my editing program and did what I could to make the photos look as they did when I took them and not until I saved the photos after that editing a folder turned up. The problem was that the folder just was called 2015-10 the date of today didn’t show but that is at least an easy thing to change.
I also noticed, while I was in the settings changing the make Your photo better thing that the computer also would download my photos to a cloud, hell no I said and changed those settings too! I have also changed some settings after Birgit told me here to keep my privacy as private as possible because windows will take any info from my computer and use it in ways I might not like. Ok, I don’t have any secrets but I still want them to ask for permission if they want to use anything I do on my computer.
Well, I usually buy myself a present when it is Christmas so I think I’ll see if I can find a MAC on the Pawn shops website, anything must be better than Windows. I’ve also been thinking of Linux for a long time but never found a place from where I can download it, at least not a site I think is safe :-) I think I’ll do that next time I get a new computer and if it isn’t a MAC.
But besides from these annoying things it does work pretty good, actually a bit faster than it did when I had Windows 8.1 but I have to admit that it took quite some time until I figured out how to start the internet, they had changed that too :-)
The morning has been chilly but not cold and the sky was mostly cloudy when we went out on our walk. I saw very few wild animals, a few deer and three swans flying by but that’s it. I did hear lots of geese though but they were o a field too far to walk to. Yesterday, on my way to work, a moose decided to walk out on the road in front of my car. I had already seen it so I managed to stop the car just a few meters from it. It was either a calf from last year or a cow without a calf. Beautiful animals but actually pretty dangerous, it happens that they kill people by kicking them to death.
