Tuesday Tips and Techniques: Tuxpi

I've been having so much fun with this free,  photo editing site, (Tuxpi), that I just have to share it with you.  My friend, Geri, over at My Heart Art, is an amazing artist who specializes in digital work.  If you've never been to her blog, I suggest you check it our pronto!  Each one of Geri's posts is filled with helpful techniques and great website links as well as her creative artwork.

One of the last links that Geri shared is Tuxpi.com.  You can do incredible things with your artwork and photographs, and the best part of it all - it's FREE!

The first image I decided to play with was the easter egg artwork from my Weekend Journal post.  After a few adjustments (sorry - I neglected to write down which effects I used), I ended up with this image from the original PDF.

I had a PDF of the original sketch of my Easter eggs, so I also played with that in Tuxpi.  As I recall, I used the kaleidoscope effect and adjusted the color and saturation.  I also cropped the original image.

Remember this journal spread from a couple weeks ago?  I simply added the Heatmap Photo Effect without making any other adjustments.  I love the way it looks!

And, of course, you KNOW there's no way I'm not going to play with an image of Angelia!  I love seeing myself with Photo film, Stardust and set to infinity!

So there you have it.  This is just a minute sampling of all the fun you can have with this free program.  No program is more user friendly than Tuxpi, and it's quite easy to download your finished images into your computer.  Thanks for the tip, Geri!   Now - grab your images and imagination and have some fun!  


  1. Thanks for the shout out! It's such a fun program...and yes I too love that it's FREE!

    1. Thank YOU for sharing all your fabulous finds, Geri!

  2. Love the easter eggs. They just look like Spring - something I need a good dose of here in the Pacific Northwest!

    1. Thanks, Laurie! Now that Mike lives in CA, I've been noticing the weather out your way on a more regular basis. NOT quite the sunniest spot in the country, so I'm sending you plenty of cheer! ♥
