children of dune - leto 1

(no subject)

Photoshop users.

Does anyone know how you create a square outline on a picture? Like, I want to draw a rectangle or a square around something? I can get opague squares but not just outlines of squares.

ETA: I LOVE YOU ALL! THIS MEANS I WILL NOT STAB SELF WITH STAPLER WHEN I KEEP ACCIDENTALLY COVERING EVERYTHING WITH BIG BLACK SQUARES!!!!!!!!!!

more austen books

So ordered Jane Fairfax by Joan Aiken last week in a frenzy of Jane Austenesque leanings. It was--odd.

And on a lighter note: Suspense and Sensibility and North by Northanger by Carrie Bebris.

I can't find the books right now to cite author but Letters from Pemberly and it's sequel? Not recommended. Boring. Oh God so boring. And more derivative than badfic. She like--I don't know how--she managed to publish boring, bad fanfic. The Pemberleans at The Republic of Pemberly could do better on a bad day. It was--I mean, sure, irreproachable editing, and all the verbs were right, but it was like reading a grocery list. Also, it says something that I got through both books in two hours. I mean--seriously. Eww.

Seriously, the racy--I'm using the word racy, how sad is that?--ones I read earlier this year beat out everything else by far.
