This time last year, I was driving through floods. The floods weren’t too bad in the Black Country, but the River Tame did flood in places. In winter you can still get interesting pictures. Bare landscapes with trees stripped of their leaves can look quite spectacular in the winter sunshine. (more…)
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. (more…)
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. (more…)
We want the Black Country to be represented in a 2015 Waterways calendar and so I’ve taken some canal pictures. The light wasn’t good when I took this one and despite the editing and fancy frame. I don’t think it’s interesting enough for a calendar. The tree silhouette against the sky is artistic though. (more…)
My local readers will recognise the shop in today’s picture. Teddy Grays is famous in the Black Country. They sell a delicious selection of sweets. When an International student visited me last Christmas, I gave her mice made of sugar from Teddy Grays, Cadbury’s miniatures and a few other delights that we used to find in our Christmas stockings as children. We’re never too old for Teddy Grays…
I’ve been photographing graveyards and Gothic churches for Halloween to get spooky pictures, but this one isn’t at all spooky and one of the better ones. I used the ‘cali’ 8 border in PhotoScape and gave it a vintage look with colorize.
I went to the Bilston Craft Gallery on Thursday and Walsall Art Gallery on Sunday, so I had a lot to inspire me this week. I took this photo when I came out of Walsall Art gallery and thought the bikes in the foreground would give it a lot of depth. The building are unusual too. I did the edit with PhotoScape.
Neodigital Art is about using digital cameras, scanners, computers and graphic tablets to create art. You can even use pencils and pens! I took a few photos on Sunday and have been trying to do something interesting with them in editing.
Carolyn over at the Wonder of Tech sent me a couple of photos to edit this morning and I had 30 minutes to spare so tried this edit. I used PhotoScape and the coloured pencil option. I like it, it’s artistic and I would be happy to have this on the wall of my living room. What do you think?
