To create a version of this photo (which i created for the August Break mentioned in the previous post.) with your iPhone, the stages are:
1 – Open the ‘Camera+’ app
2 – Click on the image icon at the bottom left of the screen.
3 – Tap the + symbol at the top right of the screen.
3 – Choose a photo.
4 – Tap ‘import’
5 – Tap ‘edit’.
6 – I wanted to increase the contrast before I added a coloured filter, to keep the diagonals as clear as possible, so the first filter I used was ‘clarity’ using the ‘scenes’ option from the menu/choices at the bottom of the screen.
**DO NOT tap ‘Done’ in the top right of the screen until you’ve finished editing.**
That will be your penultimate step.
7 – Because I would be sharing the image on Instagram I cropped it into a square using ‘crops’ from the menu at the bottom of the screen.
8 – Next, I chose a filter from the ‘FX effects’ option at the bottom of the screen.
You can choose how much of an effect you want by tapping ‘advanced’ (bottom right after you’ve tapped the filter/effect you want to try.)
Use the slider that appears at the bottom of the screen, then tap the tick/check mark at the top right of the screen when you’re happy with how effect you’ve added.
9 – Next tap the ‘borders’ menu option, bottom right.
I chose a frame/border from the ‘Styled’ set.
10 – NOW you can tap the ‘Done’ option at the top right of the screen. (Or whenever you’re happy with the effect you’ve created.)
11 – Choose the ‘save’ option.
12 – Go to your photos and decide how you want to share your creation by tapping the arrow coming out of a box at the bottom left of the screen.
That’s it, all done. Hope you have fun – let me know how you got on either in the comments (post a link) or tweet me on twitter. I’m @sand625
…and yes I really do need to edit/sort/delete stuff from my camera roll…
