Creative Juice #022: Photoscape v.3.5

It takes no genius to edit photographs nowadays. With the dawn of various programs like the many versions of Adobe Photoshop and other free dowloadable photo-editing tools, it only takes just a minute or two to execute that magic touch to make one's profile pic skin perfectly toned and blemish-free - truly a prerequisite before clicking that 'Upload' button in social networking sites. 

It takes no genius to edit photographs nowadays. But I'd have to admit I am still a lowly pheasant (Filipino: pulubi!) when it comes down to it. Hehe. Photoscape v.3.5 is a fun and easy photo editing software that enables you to enhance photos na pindut-pindot lang. It's the drug that has been giving me my fix of pure vintage visual goodness :)

Check out how I vintage up these lovely photo of a close friend below. Haha. It's her impersonating none other than Lady Gaga, which I just sneaked out without permission. Sasakalin ako nun when she founds out!

Using Film Effect Filter: Cross Process - High  (left); with Region (Out of Focus) - Reverse Sepia and Vignetting #1 (right)
Using Film Effect Filter: Cross Process - High (left); with Darkness adjusted to Middle, Deepness adjusted to Low, Film Effect Filter: Cinema - Low twice and Vignetting #1 for the second time (left) - the finished product :)

  7. I miss having Photoscape. Much easier to use for basic photoediting. Wala kasing version sa OS na gamit ko. :(

    Btw, I am a graduating student from UP Manila and blog hopping led me here. :) I was wondering if you could answer a survey I made regarding Filipino bloggers. This is for my thesis and answering will only take you a couple of minutes.

    Confidentiality will be of utmost priority. Answering my survey will be very much appreciated. Thanks! :)
