Tuesday Tips and Techniques: Photo Editing

Can't find time to play in your journal but you've taken lots of photos?  You can still let your creativity flourish by being creative with photo editing. 

Here are some of the photos I played with over the past two weeks using free, online photo editing programs.

After a couple modifications to the photo below, and a couple keystrokes using FotoFlexer, Voila! I've got a neon Nick!
               




A little cropping and color boosting brought this Thai restaurant character to life. 

Multiple functions in iPiccy helped to re-create this photo of Nadia.

This photo of fruit taken at the West Side Market in Cleveland looks even more luscious cropped and colorized using iPiccy.


And here are the newlyweds, Nick & Heather!  More cropping with some other photo effects and desaturation make this photo feel soft and nostalgic. ( Congratulations to the new couple!)   



I've used other free, online photo editing programs such as Pixlr (which is what I've used most frequently over the past few months) and PicMonkey.  Each program offers different items that I enjoy using, and I'm just beginning to become familiar with each of these sites.  I'll try to do a more in-depth review of each specific site in the coming weeks.  Do you have a favorite online photo editing program that you enjoy using?  If so, tell us all about it in the comments section of this post!

I hope you're finding lots of time for creativity whether it's in your journal, at the easel, with your camera or - just in your head!

  1. Thanks for this post. I've taken hundreds of photos on our recent trip to France. I've always played with Picassa software but now I'll try some of the ones you have used. Should provide hours of fun playtime.
