Having fun with FX Photostudio Pro

vintage garden

 

Good morning from a sunny Hastings.  WE have a long weekend this weekend.  Today is a public holiday for us as it is our anniversary day and then Monday is Labour Day.  Traditionally it is the time to plant your veggies for the year.  That I will avoid.

Anyway thanks to Sonel and Amanda ♥ Unique So Chic I am learning so much about photo editing.  I headed to the app store and downloaded FX Photostudio Pro.  Well, what a lot of fun.  I have always wondered how to get the frame affects and now I have them.  The affects are amazing.  I have also joined an online camera club – view bug.com.  This is an incredibly positive club where only positive comments are given – you get points for liking and faving other photos and generally encourage them.  There are contests to enter as well.  But these photos are getting well received.  In two weeks I have received over 800 likes and 150 peer recognitions.  It really does make you feel that you want to learn more as well.  Anyway there are quite a few photos today as I have just had so much fun it was hard to stop.  I go out and take photos which I love, but then what do you do with them afterwards?  Have fun editing of course.

I have found my roses to be really popular with a lot of likes and peer recognitions.

These two photos were of an unusual seed pod of some flowers I had taken before.  They were just amazing and of course made for some awesome affects.

Lines are amazing for photo editing.

The first photo is a reflection at Cornwall Park.  This is with the marine filter and it really gives a depth to the photo, while the other is the charcoal sketch filter.  I love the creativity of the filters and how it can completely transform an average photo and really lift it.

The sepia toning is good on this app as well.  I love the G & A frame on this which gives an old postcard or photo look to it.

Finally this is the photo that everyone seems to like.  There are two sepia filters with this app.  The other sepia photo above was the aged photo toning but this one was with the sepia filter itself.  I am not sure as I can’t really remember how I got to this, but I think I changed it to black and white first, before adding the sepia filter.  The colour photo was good, but the toning and editing have really brought out the rays of light and added depth to the photo.

So have fun with photo editing.
