Photography: PhotoScape editing

I took this photo in the summer of 2013 and then edited it with PhotoScape for an artistic picture. I had it printed on a 30 inches wide canvas last year for a Christmas present. I use Windows Photo Gallery for a lot of editing and PhotoScape for the more artistic edits. 


You can also join pictures together with PhotoScape:

You can also add text and make you own adverts, posters or book covers.

This is another PhotoScape edit. I made the image sepia and added a border. It looks quite artistic! In PhotoScape, you can make an image sepia and  colorize the picture to make it a slightly different colour; such as a greenish sepia.

Teddy Grays sweet shop

This sweetshop is well known where I live and has been around since Victorian times. This edit suits the shop. That border is suitable for scans of old photos where the edges are damaged.

The Black Country

This image gets a message across. The Black Country was said to be black by day and red by night because the industry.

I took this photo in the summer and did a sepia edit on it. This was a Boer war re-enactment and images associated with history can look quite good in sepia.

PhotoScape is a free download, you can also try Fotosizer that allows you to re-size whole folders of photos. What do you think of today’s photo edits? Please share your thoughts in the comments box. As always you can follow me on Twitter too.

  4. Hi Mike, Wow, what a variety of edits! You make excellent use of Photoscape and showing us the power of the software. Each edit brings a new life to your photos. You really get a feel for the area from your photos.

    I’m so glad you printed the flower cart onto canvas and gave that as a gift. Such a warm and inviting image!

    I’ve been using PicMonkey, an online service, for my photo editing. I find it easiest to use.

    • Hi Carolyn.

      I was short on time so I used library images! I’ve made a video of the photos from earlier in the year. I’m trying to upload it to Facebook, but it about 500 Mb. One tip when editing photos is to do it under incandescent light. The computer screen looks different, much better.. Those canvases can be expensive, but Amazon did a good price just over £20 with delivery for a 30″ canvas. It looked great too. 🙂
