Neodigital Art | Editing old photos
Sometimes you can scan an old photo and improve it or make it artistic with editing. This is West Bromwich High Street at the beginning of the 20th century. I edited with PhotoScape and use the colorize option.
This picture isn’t very old. I took it last year, but I have edited again with PhotoScape and again I’ve used the colorize option. It’s the Tudor style Manor House at West Bromwich (now a Museum).
I used the colorize option in PhotoScape again for this picture. That church is close to my home and is probably 700 years old. It’s on the site of an ancient fort where Ethelfleda the warrior princess; daughter of King Alfred, fought against the invading Vikings. Princess Ethelfleda was known as the Lady of the Mercians.
I’ve kept with Black Country landmarks with this picture. This is the new hospital at Walsall. I tried editing this with PhotoScape and apart from cropping off a dump truck, I couldn’t make it any better. The hospital had a photo contest this time last year and one of my pictures now hangs in the hospital. Appropriately enough it’s where they do the blood tests! That will give people something to look at while they wait. I have to go there again, the day before the winter solstice. It will be getting dark when I arrive on one of the shortest days. I would like to get this shot again, but at night. I shall have to see what the weather’s like and how much time I have left on the parking.
I hope you liked today’s pictures. I have another blog today on a zillion ideas with even more amazing pictures.
