More Photo Editing Fun : Filters and Light

I needed this an hour ago.
What I love about Etsy is not only the endless selection of handmade things that you can buy, but also the people on there. I was browsing along today, and found this really cute mug cozy at Autumn&Amber ~ which I need because of my current (and forever) coffee addiction!

While I was looking around at the shop's pictures, I realized that not only were they amazing (go see
for yourself)...but I had no idea how they made the digital effects. I needed to know! Thanks to A&A, I finally do!

By no means am I a digital photography expert, but still, it never hurts to give your pictures a little extra pizzazz! There are plenty of apps and photo editing programs available for free in the Google store or Apple store that have nothing to do with Photoshop or the free-alternative, Gimp. Even Windows 10 has some photo editing features that can make your pictures stand out.

  • Color and Light Filters
  • Tilt-shift or Selective Focus
  • Vignettes
  • Highlights and Shadows
Don't be afraid to play with your pictures. It can be kinda fun and relaxing once you really get into it. Just make sure the photo that you begin with is photographed under natural light.

What a difference a great photo can make on your page!
