How To Get All ‘Artsy’ With Your Photos

  • Draw a thin white line across it, dividing it into two halves.

  • Copy the photo and paste it upside-down next to the original.

  • Make it black and white.

  • Make it black and white, except one part.

  • Block-in part of the photo with a shape - circle, star, heart, etc. - then make the rest one solid color (usually black).

  • Overdrive the contrast.

  • Overdrive the color saturation.

  • Put inspirational words across it.

  • Make it all blurry or pixilated.

  • Fade the edges or give them an old, torn look.

  • One word: Sepia!


  1. I love the sepia effect especially with my abandoned building photos.


You may put in your 2¢ worth, but I'll only pay you a penny for your thoughts.
