Hey everyone! Sorry for the lack of posts. I've been applying to colleges like crazy, and I'm almost done. I just have one more application to go, and then all I can do is wait. *bites nails*
I assure you that ENTM results will be posted within the week, but for now I have a more educational and artistic post for you all!
It's about one of my favorite sites:
On this site you can add fantastic effects to create all sorts of photos!
Now one of my favorite things to do is go out somewhere with a nice landscape or background, and just take photos. I often bring my BFF along, because she's a great model. After one of these such events I decided to run my photos through pixlr-o-matic, and the results were better than I could ever hope!
Here's an example. I started would with a perfectly average picture like this:
It's pretty nice, but not jaw dropping or anything.
I edit it on pixlr, and BAM!
Pixlr-o-matic allows you to separately change the coloration, added effects, and borders. However I have found that the trick is to use this button:
It instantly randomizes all three things simultaneously. I find that it leads to a combination of things that you would never think of using, but actually work quite well. Of course you have to press it a few times to get the right result, and sometimes all three things aren't perfect, but it really does help with decision making. I used this method on a set of photos, and I'm really happy with the results.
Here are a sample of them:
What do you think?
Will you try using pixlr-o-matic?
