A picture's worth a thousand words

I’ve updated my blog template and added my photo so if you’ve ever wondered what I look like well, now you’ll know. It was taken using my $g(Nikon D70) with my wife behind the camera doing her best Austin Power’s “work it” imitation accounting for the smile. I converted it to JPEG using $g(Nikon Capture) as I find Picasa’s NEFfile, Nikon’s RAW format, conversion well, poor. I then used Paint.NET’s magic wand to replace the background with a gradient to make it look a bit more professional, at least to me. The color version is on my Facebook profile (requires login) where Hallvard’s kindly offered me a little career advice (thanks Hallvard, I think) after harassing me update my picture from the default question mark.
