Creative Photo Editing

If you're looking for a unique way to add a creative and fun twist to images you use in print marketing materials, social media, web content, blogs, etc., here are a few fun photo editing ideas:
  • Crop images out as a silhouette

  • Add a filter to create the illusion of a pencil drawing, poster print, water color painting, etc.

  • Digitally add a shallow depth of field

  • Create a sultry vignette

  • De-saturate the image, create a vintage, aged effect, or draw attention to help specific colors stand out

  • Merge multiple photos into one for a collage effect
Here are a few examples of editing tools that you may find helpful to add filters and creative touches for the creative effect you desire:
  • Photoshop Express Editor offers a suite of free photo-editing functions. While it is limited in comparison to the licensed version of Photoshop, it provides an easy way for most people to make easy photo corrections.

  • BeFunky offers a range of photo filters, including the ability to convert a photo to resemble a hand-drawn sketch.

  • Pixlr is not only available on your phone but there are also three web versions depending on the extent of image editing desired, including a variety of filters as well as seasonal effects and advanced features.

  • GIMP (GNU Image Manipulation Program) is a free photo editing software that offers a similar full featured alternative to Photoshop, but may be difficult to learn for beginners that want a quick photo fix.
