Photography: Christmas edits
This is the time of year when you can dig out the snow pictures and edit them for Christmas messages and effects. These edited pictures can make your Facebook Timeline look cool or if you have a blog, you can change to a Christmas header.
There are even festive borders in PhotoScape that you can use to make your image more Christmassy. I chose one of the Christmas borders and made it wider by resizing the image and making it smaller.
If you have imagination and want to be really creative, you can do something really colourful. I took this photo with a 4 point star filter fitted and then edited, changing the perspective and adding a border.
I went out in the cold to take this landscape. The sun came out, but the images were a little dark and so I added contrast and made them brighter in Windows Live Photo Gallery.The weather is quite mild, but it can change quickly in the UK so we have to be prepared for anything. If it goes really cold, then we get frozen pools, lakes and canals. We might get snow and that can give some good images too.
Keep your camera handy in case you see an unusual shot like this. I edited this shot in PhotoScape, blurring the background and making it sepia.
