Hola gorgeous Goddess!
I get emails all ze time asking how I process my photos & get them looking all ker-spunky funky.
So! Here’s my round-up of favourite goodies to make photos look spesh.
I’ve divided it into sections for free online photo editors, Photoshop users & iPhone/iTouch users.
Free online photo editing software
With Photoshop, you can do basic photo editing like cropping, adding borders & some basic colour changes.
Picnik.com also has a free online photo editor.
Pioneer Woman’s free actions are the ones I use the most. I especially love Seventies!
I layer textures over photographs to give them a vintage, weathered, enchanted kinda look. There are many techniques for adding textures to photos, I usually add the texture as an extra layer, then select Multiply, and mask out gently places I don’t want it to show. You can get textures on DeviantART… otherwise you can photograph your own texture pics of cement, walls, paper & paint!
iPhone or iTouch Photo Filter Apps
CameraBag is the photo one I love ze most. It has black and white, vintage, Polaroid and cross processing filters. Me hearts.
And I’ve heard a lot about Hipstamatic. But to be honest? I bought it and found it so annoying and slow and buggy that I deleted it. Howevs, It’s got a cute interface and if you can get it to work, then yippee!
Photoshop App is free & does basic photo edits, plus a couple of filters. I tend to use this one in conjunction with CameraBag – I crop & fix exposure & then CameraBag the buggery out of it 🙂
And I’ve totally saved the best till last!!!
I’ve JUST discoved Instagram, & I’ve fallen fast & hard in love. Gorgeous square filters. Free! Scrumptious!
Okly dokly my darlinghearts, hope this helps you funkify your gorgeous photos…
Go forth & CREATE!
