Local Florida - The Old Spanish Sugar Mill

The Old Spanish Sugar Mill is a great place to take photos and have breakfast.  At The Old Spanish Sugar Mill Grill and Griddle House you can make your own pancakes.  They bring you the ingredients you choose such as bananas and chocolate chips and they even have gluten free pancake mix.  I wish I would have taken a photo of the pancakes, but they were so yummy I ate them.

After breakfast take a photo walk on the wooded trails and the to cool down take a dip in the springs which stays 72 degrees year-round.  Nature boat tours are also available.  If you would like to learn more check out their website.

Photoshop Tips

Did you know Ctrl(pc) or Cmd(mac) + 0 shows your image full screen?  Another option is to double click the hand tool.

Do you want to see a ruler around your image?  Go to View and then check mark rulers to turn the ruler around the image on and off.  If you right click in the top left corner of the ruler, you can choose whether you want the ruler to show inches, pixels, Millimeters and more.

Here's a link to my favorite mouse to use with Photoshop.  I am old school in that I like a mouse with a tail and no batteries to worrying about remembering to bring spares.  It's also easier to pick it up by the tail when it falls on the floor.  I also use wrist rest to help support my wrist during long Photoshop editing sessions.  I like that it has bead filing that conforms to the shape of your wrist.
