Change for the better?

In my opinion a lot of photographs in my collection are quite nondescript so playing around with them gives them new life.

Original taken in Rome
My lounge ... by x-ray!
An ordinary bicycle comes to life!
A run-down alleyway by a gift shop... transformed!


  1. Love what you did with them!

  2. ha. i like the first and the last...the first is like modern art...the last, the crimping of the pic gives it a bit of menace...

  3. What fun you have with your apps. I might give it a try soon.

  4. Nice job on these, Valerie! I love playing around with special effects on my photos.

  5. Thanks, Pearl.

    Hey. Brian. I see what you mean about the last picture... didn't notice it before.

    BC, you should try them out, they're amazing.

    You and me both, Mona. Your before and after pictures are brilliant.

  6. Valerie...these are soooooooooo cool!

    LOVE, LOVE, LOVE what you did with the photo editing! Isn't fun to play around with editing after you take a photo?

    What editing format did you use because the effects are awesome?

    Love them all, but that first one really caught my eye:)


    Thanks for sharing, dear lady. Have a spectacular weekend!


  7. Ron, the first and last pictures were done with the help of Lunapic, the cycle was BeFunky. and the x-ray pic was achieved using an App on the iPad - Apple's own, I think. I need to try the latter more often. It's amazing what you can do on an iPad... grins.

  8. Wow, those are nice. I especially like the first one, and the bicycle. I might have to spend a few hours in Photoshop with some of my million photographs!

  9. Fantastic job with the editing.
    I love playing around with Photoshop.

    I have some Bicycle shots that could use a facelift, so I might try that...

    Thanks for the ideas !!

  10. Whoa. You change photos, you change templates for the web log.....LOL You're on a roll!
