Improve Your Photography With Art!

You can either improve your Photograph’s colours; or give them that vintage colour without using filters.

How does this work?

  1. Using Photoshop; Load a Classical/Vintage painting (or a photo you like) that you would like to match to.
  2. Load your Photo.
  3. Then we will do “Match Colour”

Samples:

Let’s test it:

– I will load this painting:

– Loading my Photo:

– Make sure you choose “your photo” as the active layer.

– Image > Adjustments > Match Color..

– Select the other photo as the “Source”:

– Adjust the “Luminance” and “Color Intensity” as you please.

– Hit “OK”!

– My result:

“JustResizeIt!” Resize Your Images with Drag-and-Drop

As a photographer I deal with tons of photos that I have taken during my travels. Sometimes I find it difficult to resize images one by one, which is waste of time!

I have tried the Photoshop patch processing to resize, but nah.. The app I’m going to show you now is much better, simpler and easier!

It is called JustResizeIt! completely free and neat.

1. Drag and drop one or more images into JustResizeIt!,

2. wait a few seconds, and

3. drag and drop resized images into an e-mail, an office document, or a folder.

Download it from Here.

Have fun processing your photos :-)

3D Danbo – Create Your Own 3D Images! (Wobble Images)

Marvelous, just an outstanding way of creating easy 3D images. This type of 3D called “Wobble Images” or “Animated 3D Stereo Photography”.

Today you will be able to see an example of this 3D type of images, I created it myself. I am really happy of the outcome. Hope you will find it fun + useful :-)

Example of a “Wobble Image”:

Examples from the Internet:

Now, How to Create those lovely Stereo Images?

1- Identify a Stationary object, (a non moving object) in my case I chose Danbo.

2- Shoot the object, then move your camera slightly (like 2 inches, or 3) to either left or right (Move the camera in a straight line).

3- Now, rotate the camera (curve) to face the stationary object (the object should be at the same place as at point 2) and shoot. This is the trickiest part in the whole tutorial (It doesn’t need to be perfect like 100% at same place, but try to make it 80% the same because we can fix that using the Photoshop).

In my case these are my two shots (You can use them to experiment)

4- Open the Photoshop, make image 1 as Layer 1, and insert image 2 as Layer 2 (above Layer 1):

5- Change “Layer 2” Opacity to 50% and adjust the stationary object to be identical (same position) in the both Layers. (That is what I meant when I said we can fix that in Photoshop in point 3). After you are done aligning the images, change the opacity back to 100%.

6- Go to (Windows > Animator) to bring the animator window, then create a second frame by clicking on the icon shown:

7- Select Frame 1 (From the animator) and make sure that only Layer 1 is visible, then Select Frame 2 and make sure that only Layer 2 is visible (The eye shown = Visible):

8- Set the Delay to (0.1) seconds:

9- Finally, save it as GIF (File > Save for Web & Devices..).

Enjoy :-)

 

Create Wonderful Panoramas

Have you ever wondered what is the best photo stitching software for making panoramas?

Well, today I’m gonna mention some of the best tools that I’ve tried before. Some of them really easy to use (straight forward), others need extra few minutes to end up with the best results.

  1. Hugin one of the best “Panorama photo stitcher” as I see it, it is FREE open source! How cool is that? It has many capabilities that will blow your mind. How about you pass to their tutorial sectionand see what this software can really do?

     

  2. AutoStitch a great free tool, it doesn’t need too much time just few clicks and you got it. You just need to Create a folder that contains all photos to be stitched, Open AutoStitch, Choose that folder and BAM! You have a panorama.

     

  3. Clevran online free photo stitch tool. An easy way to make panoramas and share them with other friends.

     

  4. Photoshop CS5if you are lazy enough to try different photo stitching tools, then go for the CS5. Simply, load the images then the Photoshop will do the rest.
