A long time ago, I loaded the Instagrams app on my iPhone; something I read about on The Pioneer Woman. But I haven’t had much of an opportunity to mess with it. Then the other day, I came across a picture of Windy that was so crisp and clear, that I decided to play around with it a bit on Photoshop.
The top picture of Windy is straight out of the camera. While not a bad picture really, I decided to liven it up a bit. I won’t pretend to be able to tell you step by step what I did to this picture but it seemed to work. I then sent it over to my iPhone via Dropbox (another must have app which I do use all the time) and uploaded it to Instagram. The above picture was the end result.
I did the same with this picture of Ginger taken last winter. I didn’t do anything with it in Photoshop but did choose an Instragram setting. Its funny, but it almost looks like she has moved slightly.
Both photos offer a bit more drama than the straight out of the camera picture. It’s a fun little program to play with and another time killer.
(I changed the first picture on the post below to an Instagram 1977 setting.)
