I just added Pixlr-o-matic to my I-phone and computer. It is a free app for photo effects. Where you make your photo's look vintage, artsy, framed...etc.
It's a lot of fun. Boring paintings can be made fresh. Bad color shots can be brightened or darkened.
Fun frames can be added as well.
Here, the photo is very pink and bluish tinted. Not so great.
Adding Pixlr didn't make it great but I think livened up a poor shot.
Here is my original painting.
Colorful and bright was my intention.
The new adjusted version of this photo is muted and interesting to me as well.
The same here in this painting, brights are wonderful and vivid...
But the dark and sketchy version makes this painting mysterious.
Give it a try and let me know what you think. Have fun!
