(German/English combination; my own as far as i know), so i snapped it with my cellphone
Later, i thought the transparency in the photo file was cool so i did a screenshot.
Anyone ever done one? i hadn't this time last year. It's kinda cool.
There's actually a key that says "Print Screen," or maybe something similar on a different brand keyboard. Look in the top row, with ESC and all the F_ keys.
i hit Print Screen, then opened my trusty Paint program. (You probably have somethng more sophisticated, like Photoshop, maybe.)
Once in Paint, i Select-ed and Crop-ped off the toolbar at the top, then the part of the transparent underlay that i didn't like.
The strangest part was selecting the little rectangle at the right edge. After selecting, i moved it toward the middle, then Select-ed the main picture to Crop the vacated edge off.
This left me with a mismatched edge. You can still see some of it, by the right edge of the white house.
Using the eyedropper tool, i Select-ed sky and tree colors. one at a time, to minimize the hard edge. With a selected color, i then chose the Airbrush brush, and sprayed it lightly over the edges.
Lettering & borders added last.
Like i said, inexpertly done, but several of these techniques are new to me.
And it's a weirdly cool photo, one way or another.
