About photos, photo editing programs and whatnot

If you love vintage looking pics (and you're no Photoshop master like myself), you'll find Pixlr o-matic very useful. It's super easy to use and it offers a wide variety of effects. I'm sure this is not new to many of you, but I've just found out about it via Vicki's blog and I'm thrilled! These are my very favorite effects.







A while ago, I blogged about Poladroid, here's the link again in case you missed it :).




Oh, boy! Don't we all love Katrina's blog Pugly Pixel? Her tutorials and downloadable listings are the best! In her blog, you can find a myriad variety of resources.




Thanks to Nena Nadine, I now know where to develop the pics I take with my Holga! ;) She mentioned this site: http://thedarkroom.com/ which specializes in Lomography; can't wait to finally use their service! These are the first pics my beautiful Holga cfn 120 took.

I had them scanned at a cyber ... those A-holes saved them really small and in a shitty quality :(. And I forgot the negatives in Argentina :(!

 
Does anybody have tips about taking panoramic pictures? My new camera has this function, but I still haven't played much with it. All I know is it works better outdoors, naturally. Here's one pic David took yesterday. I can't wait to try this the next time we go to the mountains :).



Do you have any favorite photo editing programs or sites? ;)

Have a great day, everyone! :D

You are so lovely, something about you just makes me think you're time traveling from the 60s hehe.

i usually just use photoshop, but toy camera analoger or something like that is really nice. i'm sure i've got the name wrong. poladroid is awesome too.

Hi there! Good pics :)
There are some free apps that turned out to be awesome for me :D They are very easy to use and you get fantastic effects, esp for those who like editing. Some of my favorites are:
PhotoFunia
Imikimi
PS Express
Retro Camera
I hope you like them too!
Have a nice day
