4 photo editing tools (everyone is already using)
It is my hope that when I read everyone else's #BLOGTOBER14 posts on this topic, I will find something new. I use Lightroom and Photoshop too, but these are the quick and easy tools that everyone has access to. I really prefer not to open Photoshop on this hog of a computer anyway... it takes days.
Day Twenty-Three: Favorite Editing Tools for My Blog
iPhone: This is supposedly a new feature with iOs8 and I love it. It is so easy and works really well. I'm sure you have noticed (if you follow me on instagram) that I have been going crazy with the black+white photos recently. I have two reasons for that: 1. the iPhone gives a lot of different filter options in black+white, and then you can still continue to tweak the photos and make them look however you want. 2. I look thinner and prettier in black+white.
A Beautiful Mess: Although the zoom feature in this app could use some improving (or maybe it is my fingers? let me know), I would be lost without it. There is no better app for making before/after photos and then adding text or doodles. For some reason I really like the hand drawn feel of the app. I think it makes it the photos more welcoming.
Instagram: How does it just keep getting better and better? I have no idea, but please keep the updates coming!
PicMonkey: So when I started this post, I thought why am I bothering? Everyone knows about this stuff already. But then I remembered, when I first started my blog, and a long time after that, I edited my photos in Photoshop and then created collages in inDesign. Good lord, it took forever. I never knew about the ease and convenience of PickMonkey, and now I probably wouldn't edit photos if I didn't have it.
Do yourself a favor, if you haven't started using PicMonkey, do it, and pay for the upgrade!
