Neodigital Art | More diverse editing


SUNDAY IN WEDNESBURY 015

The weather has improved a little now that we are closer to summer. I took this shot on Sunday and it was quite sunny. Notice how I’ve used the trees to add depth. I didn’t edit much, I just added some contrast.

SUNDAY IN WEDNESBURY 012

This shot was supposed to be of the river with millions of flowers on the banks. This turned out to be the best shot, because the tree gives the picture depth.

 Cambridge 2

This photo was taken by Fei, an International student at the University of Wolverhampton. She took this on a day trip to Cambridge. I converted it with the coloured pencil option on PhotoScape. The grass then looked too green and so I used the grey scale option. I think it’s quite artistic. I like the patterns.

TREE EDIT

I used the coloured pencil option on this picture too. Carolyn over at Wonder of Tech sent this one. The tree is interesting and we have patterns, I think it would have been better if the tree had been in the foreground of a landscape. Seeing this through the viewfinder, I would have stepped back or zoomed out.

Your can also add text to pictures. These are not good examples, the red is a little too dark on a black background and the blue is a little bright! Whatever fonts you have on your computer can be used. Adding text is good for info-graphics, cover pictures on your Facebook Timeline or even adverts. If you have a small shop, you could take a photo of it and then add text telling customers the contact info and address. You tell the customer not only what the shop looks like to help them find it, you tell them the contact info too. That would work as a header on a Facebook page or as an advert.

  1. Hi Mike, Great photos and edits! My favourite one this week is the pencil edit of Fei’s photo. That is a brilliant combination of photography and editing. I would have like to see the original picture to see the difference between the two.

    That tree photo I sent you looks more interesting with the edit. That tree reminds me of the haunted trees from the Wizard of Oz!

    I like the blue of the river in the top photo. Very peaceful!

    • Hi Carolyn,

      I didn’t think the original of that picture was very good. It was a dark rainy day (isn’t it always) and I cropped a lot of the sky off. The top photo is one I’ve taken lots of times, but it always comes out a little differently. The swan always hides away when I would like it in the foreground!

      Fei went for an interview this morning. Started out early and went by train. It’s afternoon now and she’s still there! I wouldn’t have the patience now. I think it’s an abuse of power having dozens of people turn up at the same time for the same job. I might give the company a bit of free publicity in a future post!

      I’ll read tomorrows post then. I often forget how to install new fonts. I think I got that fancy font from http://www.cooltext.com

  2. I forgot to mention, tomorrow I have a guest post at The Wonder of Tech on how you can add fonts to your computer. 🙂
