I have a hard time getting inspired on cold and snowy days, but it always helps me to look at pretty pictures. I had fun creating this mosaic with some of the pictures I’ve added to my favorites on Flickr.
I was in the mood for a Flickr mosaic and I decided to do something different this time and use a combination of my own photos and others found on Flickr. These are things that make me think of summer.
I've resisted the Instagram urge. I like my photos bright and sunny, clean and crisp. I like really big photographs. I thought I didn’t need to take tiny little pictures with funky filters. I was wrong. I love these little things! Suddenly, my peanut butter sandwich looks cool.
Hubby and I look so much cuter with a wonky little border and hazy filter.
I’m enjoying taking pictures of random things just so I can play with the app settings.
I’m noticing different details in these types of photos – like the slightly worn edges of my Artful Blogging magazines.
They need to be printed up in small sizes, they are only 612x612 pixels. I have plenty of ideas for these – and what’s even more important is that I’m having a lot of fun!
I’m still a newbie and I’m trying to figure out the community aspect of it all. I signed up for a followgram url of http://followgram.me/ktscrapbooklady if you want to check out my instagram stream or you can check out my new instagram Flickr set. If you’re an Instagram junkie, my username is ktscrapbooklady.
When Pioneer Woman came out with her Photoshop actions, I didn’t pay much attention since I’m a PSE (Photoshop Elements) kind of gal. I was excited though, when someone helped her make PSE friendly actions. I never got around to installing them until I wrote this article for The Daily Digi about photo editing. Now I can’t believe I lived without them for so long!
Sometimes it’s just so much fun to play with photos!
original photo taken by my Mother-in-Law in Oregon back in 2004. SOOC (straight out of the camera)
PW Boost action. It’s subtle (or supple, as my son says), but very pretty. The colors are just a little more vibrant.
PW Define and Sharpen. The details are nice and sharp.
PW Sunshine. Looks like a sunny day in the seventies to me. Fun effect.
PW Seventies. Like the seventies, only prettier. And without red eye and yellow tints. lol!
PW Lovely and Ethereal. Might be my favorite. Soft and sweet.
PW Heartland. Not really meant for flower pictures, but I love the look of this. I bet it’s awesome on her ranch pictures!
PW Fresh and Colorful. Ok, this might be my favorite one. I really like things to look fresh and colorful! I like vibrant color.
Have you played with your pictures lately? It’s a great way to avoid cleaning your house, doing laundry, or working on anything that is on your very long list of things that should be done. Trust me, I know this from experience.
