I was playing around with a new editing App called Aviary that I downloaded for my smart phone. Using the same photo, I tried several effects.
^^^This ^^^is the original, which I seriously don't think came out bad at all. I just have a hard time not experimenting. :)
There is a subtle difference using the Lucky effect; sort of like cross processing.
The sepia tone effect, Boardwalk, makes it look sort of old and western-y.
Using the Sentosa effect and decreasing the saturation, gives this one a bit of a chilly feel to it.
To give it a more dramatic look, I used Metropolis, which is their version of a B&W effect.
The App has lots of features to choose from. And you can share on multiple social networks once you're finished editing.
Once I was done, I emailed them to myself, opened them in Picmonkey and watermarked them. I could have done this in Aviary because it has Text ability, but I needed a bit of extra to make my text visible. So, in Picmonkey I used a Tape Overlay sent to the back to make my name more visible. Otherwise, it was lost in the grass. :)
Do you edit photos on your smart phone? If so, which program do you prefer?
