I thought I’d do something a bit different this week, and instead of posting a photo with any information I’ve been able to dig up, I thought I’d post about photo effects that I use.

I don’t have photoshop, or a photo editing software on my computer, but I find that I can do just about everything I want with a online editor called iPiccy.  The first thing I do is upload a photo and crop it, and maybe straighten it out if needed, and sometimes, that’s enough.

But sometimes, I like to play a bit with colors/textures/effects (especially in October, when it can be fun to play up the “spooky” side of cemeteries).   In iPiccy, it can just take a few minutes to produce some interesting results:

One of the other effects that I find I use fairly often is to make a photo black/white or sepia toned, because that can sometimes bring out details on the stone that my original photo color photo just didn’t show.

I’m always looking for tips — does anyone have any they’d like to share?    🙂
