Bastets Pixelventures – jazzing up photos with apps!

Bastets Pixelventures – jazzing up photos with apps!

 Choose your app and play around even if you’re not usually one to fool around with apps .. this week give it a whirl and see what you can come up with!  So this week’s prompt isPlaying with Apps!  and I do mean play – have fun!

So here we go, I am a total app fiend, I love them and usually post pictures I have played around a lot with or just fun ones on my Instagram which you will see down the side of my blog or here:  Justine’s Instagram

Of course I was shouting a yippee and a yay when I saw this challenge and then realized I must not get carried away, so limited myself to not too many different ways to play with a photo.

I tried to find at least a semi interesting subject to play with and that is my youngest sat in a tree, curled up like the little monkey that he is!

I’ve written at the bottom of each photo roughly what I have done, and put a number apart from the original and would really like to know your favorite? 🙂

boy in tree

The Original photo unedited except for the frame

boy in tree grunge style

no. 1 this photo has been edited by a grunge app which I rather like!

boy in tree, skeleton style effect

no.2 This will be like marmite, either love or hate. I like this, it reminds me of the skeletons left when you pull out the middle of leaves, or the veins on an anatomy and physiology poster, yes I am weird LOL

Boy in tree watercolour style

no3. A classic watercolour application which is pretty

boy in tree, cartoon pencil drawing

no.4 This is a cartoon style application which I am meant to paint but havn’t.

cartoon of boy in tree

no.5 This is a different cartoon style which colours in automatically.

    I don’t know how it happened but I only saw your lovely post this morning! You did a really fantastic job here and I loved seeing your mind at work! A great idea the voting box, though actually I think each photo had it’s particular merit so makes choosing hard. But I always to choose in the end 🙂 ! Thanks for participating Justine! A real credit to Pixelventures!

    These are amazing. Your son is beautiful/handsome in all forms. I liked #5 best although I don’t know why. It called to me!

    Which app did you use? I did mine on the computer so haven’t looked at any of the android apps yet. Recommendations would be welcome.

        No. They are still on Amma’s North American tour. Right now they are on the east coast. When it is over they are going to come home, for the first time.

        They are coming back to take their dad on a bucket list trip to the Grand Tetons and Yellowstone. He wants me to come too. I’m concerned about my BP and the altitude but I want to do part of it, so am going only to the Grand Tetons.

        That trip is a trip he and I took in 1975 when Sreejit was still in a back pack!

            Yes, it will be nice to have them back for awhile longer! I think the last time I had trouble with altitude I wasn’t on medication, so I’m thinking it should be okay. I’m going when we are staying at Jackson Lake which is the lowest point, but that is definitely not low. Seattle is at sea level and Jackson Lake is around 6700 feet if I remember right. It will be a learning experience! 🙂
