Neodigital Art | Editing with PhotoScape
Today’s picture was taken at Forge Mill Farm in Sandwell Valley and I’ve edited it with PhotoScape taking out some cars in the background and I changed the colours to look like sepia.
The hand cart is from another era and so I wanted the picture to have a vintage look. PhotoScape is a freeware application and intuitive to use.
This is what the screen looks like when you open PhotoScape. To edit photos, you simply choose Editor, but there are other useful applications there too. The page option allows you to make a sort of collage of your photos and that can be useful if you’re going to print them and use a larger frame. You can even do animated GIFS. When you have opened the editor, you have lots of options. I used filter, then pictorialisation, then water color pencil on this photo. It’s brought out the texture of the block paving. Then I went to colour and selected colorize to give it a vintage look. The most important and tricky part of the editing was getting rid of cars in the background. I clicked tools and then used the clone tool. Click with that, then move just a little to where you want to clone to. I cloned the fence and the trees to remove some cars. Finally, I cropped the picture to get it just the way that I wanted it.
This is the picture before I edited with PhotoScape but after I had edited with Windows Live Photo Gallery. It’s still quite dull, even after editing. See if you can spot which little bits that I cloned to hide the cars?
You can also also use that option to combine photos to get a long photo like this. You could also do info-graphics like this. What do you think of today’s editing? Artistic? Please share your thoughts in the comments box…
