This week’s challenge was inspired by, “…a recent photo challenge and a series of articles and discussions circulating about the validity of iphone photos as “real” art.” I will demonstrate how I manipulated a photograph into a featured image for a recent post.
I started with a photo from my iPhone
Using iPhoto, I rotated the image 90 degrees
I opened the image in Snapseed where I cropped it, and adjusted the color and contrast to make the image ‘pop’
This is the tricky part, I added some texture and grunge to age to image
Using Pixlr online editing software I resized and re-cropped the image to fit my Twenty Eleven theme’s Featured Image requirements: 1,000 x 288
Here is the result
I hope that this inspires you to go further with your photography/iPhoneography and learn some new ways of doing the same old/same old. Check out Rubicorno’s blog for a look at truly inspired manipulation.
