Vintage-Style Guitar Amp

Although we are in the new era when everything is mostly done electronically and technologically, there are some things vintage that are still appreciated by a lot of people like this vintage tube. The older the thing looks, the prettier it is, agree?

The 15W Bugera BC15 Vintage guitar amp says “retro” better than almost any other combo amp out there. From its vintage styling-which harkens back to the golden age of tube design-to its dual-channel, 12AX7-fueled preamp, this little 1×8 time machine instantly transports your tone to the land of bliss.

Hopping from Korean to a Japanese Store

I have been to a Chinese and Vietnamese stores many times in the past to shop for fish, meat, dry and canned goods. Nothing much of a difference between the two, I find some Filipino stuff in both stores so going either way is fine with me.

When one of my friends asked me if we could go to a Korean grocery store in Carollton one Saturday, who am I to refuse? I have not been to a Korean store so we went two weeks ago. I was amazed at everything sold in their market. If you don’t know me, I so love Korean food! I like the seaweeds, side dishes and ahhh anything Korean I am so in love so you can only imagine myself upon entering the store and saw all these goodies that laid before my eyes.

Anyway, hanging out with Filipinas who speak the same language as me is always the best. We talk, eat and laugh endlessly. While at Hmart grocery store, we made sure to fill our stomachs with delicious Korean dishes before grabbing some groceries. When we were all finished, we headed to a Japanese store nearby. It was also my first time to be in that store and for me, hopping from a Korean store to the Japanese store was like going to two different nations in Asia.

I had a blast that one Saturday in September. I was out with friends for the whole entire day without my children. That was exactly what I needed and fortunately, the husband was okay with it. Looking forward to many more Saturday walks and shopping with my girl friends in the future.

How to Edit Your Photo with the Movavi Photo Studio

If you’ve never tried to edit photos in the past then you may very well feel that it is out of reach and too complicated to try. However what you may not realize is that it actually doesn’t have to be – especially not if you’re making use of the right software.

With the Movavi Photo Studio, you’ll find that editing your photos can actually be a piece of cake. Not only will you be able to make them look great, but you’ll also be able to completely transform their appearance – just with a few clicks. All that you need to do to edit your photos is decide exactly how you want to tweak them, using options such as:

  • Adjusting the brightness, contrast, saturation, hue, temperature, and exposure of the image, or even using the ‘magic enhance’ feature to automatically adjust them.
  • Utilizing filters such as lomo, oil painting, sepia, pixelate and so on to alter the look of the photo.
  • Transforming the photo by flipping, rotating, cropping, leveling and resizing it as and how is needed.
  • Replacing elements of the photo or removing them completely – including the entire background if necessary.
  • Adding custom captions and watermarks that are completely editable and can be tailored to suit your needs.

Quite frankly you could even take things a step further if you want to and create a stylish slideshow from your photos once you’re done. By adding music, some snappy transitions and a few captions – it could really turn into a pretty amazing video that you can then share with your friends or family.

Of course, editing photos is not an exact science so you may very well find that it takes a little bit of trial and error before you get your photos looking the way that you want them to. Keep at it though, and be sure to experiment with all of the features that this photo editor brings to the table.

Because its features are so intuitive and user-friendly, you’ll find that editing your photos really is incredibly easy. If you want, you could even tweak multiple photos simultaneously thanks to its batch processing feature. Quite frankly there is very little that the Movavi Photo Studio isn’t capable of, so the only question that you really need to ask yourself is: What do you think would make your photos look better?
