Filling the Fifty Years
SIMPLE SOLUTIONS FOR POSTING PICS
Fifty years is a lot to fill in! Yet when we meet old friends, whether at a reunion or on the Central65 webpage, that’s what we want to know. “So what have you been up to since Central High?" There simply isn't enough time to talk with everyone, and if you weren’t able to make a reunion, then how to connect? Well, this website has been a great option. But unless you want to write a 20 page essay, then photos are the best way to show those years.
Yet, only half of the folks with profiles on Central65 have posted pictures! Maybe it’s not your style (See Introverts Unite! below). But if you have some 50 years on film, why not? It’s really pretty easy on today’s website. You can post a few shots on The Chatter, or keep the pics more permanently on your profile photo collection. Use the “Edit Profile” button on the sidebar, and add photos into the upper right corner. More “how-to” info can be found at Personal Profile Changes.
An easy way to add interest to your photos, or post several in a smaller space, is to make a photo collage.
This can be done on either your desktop, with free applications such as PicMonkey, seen above,
or on your iPad / tablet using an app such as PicCollage.
They are incredibly easy to use. (The collage from the 2015 Reunion took about 3 minutes to make – once decided on the pictures.) All offer free basic versions, which is all most folks need. More advanced versions can be purchased online with multiple templates, themes, printing options, or tools all the way up to a poor-man's version of Photo Shop.
Whatever you try – simply adding photos with a click, or playing with different photo apps – put some pictures from the last 50 years of your family, your travels, or you on Central65.net. Your fellow 'Cats would love to see your smiling face.
