Blogger just introduced a new gadget that adds share buttons under each post for Twitter, Blog This, Facebook, etc.
So how do you go about adding these to your Blogger blog? It is so easy!
Go to Design, Page Elements and click on the Edit under Blog Posts. Then check the button by the "show share buttons" to add them. Simple!
If you can't see your buttons after adding them, then you have a modified Blogger template. But with a simple addition to your template HTML (you don't have to know HTML, just how to copy and paste) you can get them to show up. Read all about it here.
If you had share buttons and they disappeared even if you have them checked on Configure Blog Posts, then add this simple code in your html in the post section (for advanced users, back-up your template first!):
I also want to mention that my newest free action for Photoshop and Photoshop Elements, Perfect Portrait 2, is about to come out! Here is a preview of this monster "one-step" portrait action. Yes, I ran the action on an image I grabbed off my desktop, so please don't laugh... Imp loves to make lovely faces.
This action does it all! It includes all of the layers of PowderRoom 2 and Baby PowderRoom, with the addition of layers to pop color and contrast, add skin glow, remove red casts from skin, vignette, sharpen, etc. This action can be run on a SOOC (straight-out-of-camera) image and is my biggest and most practical action.
Everything has layer masks so your edited portrait can be subtle to dramatic. Morgan has been helping me out with this one because not only is she an editing pro, but also a professional photographer with experience knowing what the pros need in a portrait action.
We are trying to make sure we include detailed instructions, so that is what is holding up the release. I am also going to be posting a few more B&W actions and storyboards.
