Gimp Is a great free option! Photopea is a very good online base no downloading editor so all you need is an online connection. Snapseed is very good and is free! It does stuff that you can do in photoshop but is so much easier but It's for use on a smartphone. It can make someone smile with just sliding your finger!! You can also turn a subjects head left to right and up and down with just using your fingers on the touchscreen. There are tons of good free apps but not all are in the app stores. So do your homework before downloading something, not in the app store. For people who like to make videos, Blender is a free app that looks awesome but I am still learning to use it. I am like many people I don't have the money for a prescription based App. Now If your time is valuable You cannot go wrong with Photoshop. The water down version is Photoshop elements still cost around $100.00 But is a one time fee But every year they come out with a newer Elements But you could get more than one year out of it if you don't need the latest upgrade. For me free is the way to go.
Glad to see this video that lists Free editing options Just like Photoshop and Lightroom. Lightroom shines in areas to edit and Photoshop shines better in other areas of an edit. Now because there are free apps don't limit yourself to just one free app Find a combination of two or more that can get the job done. Fyi make sure it a non-destructive edit. Never edit your original raw file.
i love online editors, i use PIXLR as mentioned in the video
i found these *free online editors*
this one seemed down at the moment when i checked it http://fotoflexer.com/
OK, here we go with the 20 Q's from me (not that many but still a few). I'm Not a graphic artist or a web designer. I don't do advertising or consult for a business, so what Other options are there that don't cost $20/mo for something I'm going to use sporadically? I work on cars; performance mods but I'm starting a project to convert my fwd coupe into a mid -engine perf car. I need something that will allow me to take pics; either from my phone or those I find online; to cut/paste/modify for possible grafting onto my car for the build. I'd like something that will allow me to convert those pics into vector drawings or use in A/CAD. This is a side project for me. I've working on and modifying cars since I was 13, now 52; so it's not like I can afford another $20+/mo on something I'll use maybe 2-4X/mo. Here are the basics: Dell Optiplex 480 Desktop (upgraded over the last 6 years), 6G RAM (2.96G usable), 1-T HD (38% unused space, planned ahead), Win10 O/S (32-bit x64 based). So, other than Adobe Photoshop, what is available that won't cost me that much?
I tried once to download pixlr on my pc but i couldn't, you're saying that we don't need to install this program so how can i getting into it? Do i just go to their website or what can i do i mean don't know much about this programs can you please explain to me how can i use it i do have it on my Android but couldn't get it on my pc, which is the one i want to try it out.
FastStone is FREE and AWESOME folks, for a quick and dirty editor (it lacks most actual editor features as shown in Authors video, THOSE do a lot more!!!!), AND does some RAW files, not sure how many versions it handles, but I use my Nikon and Fujifilm files in it! http://www.faststone.org/FSViewerDetail.htm
I still use Photoimpact 8.0, and only recently got it as an upgrade to Photoimpact 5!!! Seriously, awesome program! Want to really laugh? I still use Dreamweaver 3.0 for web design!!!! VERY small size/footprint, built in FTP, and more, i am NOT a pro so, these work for me ;)
Macromedia made some brilliant software. I got my start with Freehand and Dreamweaver. I still think Freehand was better than Photoshop in some respects, and it was so fast in comparison with a small memory footprint. Too bad Adobe killed it off.
there are terms and words I don’t know, like “rasterize”, or mask. What do those words mean? Is there a glossary so I don’t create my own meaning?
Also. The real test that shows how well the photos are a success is when you print them. I have been very disappointed to an altered photo that didn’t look good when printed. Like when I “sharpen” the image, the person’s hair gets blurry. Can you also include that in your reviews?
Thanks. Well I downloaded Gimp and the first thing I needed to do was to rotate the image for cropping ever so slightly. It's easy done in Psd but here there is no way to fine tune the cropping as far as I can see.
Dang, this video was very informative. Keep up the good work! Also, I was wondering if you do reviews and videos with different types of editing apps? New, unpopular, old and overlooked ones? I'm actually using both Lightroom and MIKU Limited right now. There are already tons of videos with Lightroom but so far, I can't find one for Miku. Could you possibly make one for users like me? Thanks so much! Btw, it may prove difficult for others to find it so here's the link to the app: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.seductive_mobile.miku.android&hl=en
I love this edgy look! I was so excited that her hair, even as short as it is now, was still able to be put into the fun and trendy dutch pigtail braids! Instead of braiding to the ends, I ended them in close together pigtails at the nape of her neck. After I finished braiding, I tugged on the outsides of the braid gently to loosen them and make them a little messy and fun! Since she doesn’t have enough hair to tie around the elastics, I made sure to use elastics that matched her hair so they blend in as much as possible. You could also cover them with clips or bows! A view from the back of her Dutch pigtail braids! A great braid for short hair is a micro accent braid! My biggest tip for braiding short hair would be to add in small slices of hair rather than big ones. I did a small (micro) braid along a slightly curved deep part for anther cute and edgy look! You could also do another one next to it if you wanted a little more to the look, but I really liked how simple this one was. You can see how the part curves a little better from this view of the back. I ended the braid close to the head with an elastic that matched her hair. For our fourth style, we did a 3/4 french braid! Super simple but also super cute! You could do any type braid! It would also look cute using a Dutch braid or a fishtail braid! I loved the side view of this braid! I will for sure be doing this one next time she goes to gymnastics or swimming, whichever comes first! Our last braid is two four dutch lace braids into two loops in the back. Start off by parting the hair down the middle. On each side of the part, do a dutch lace braid, adding hair in from only the section closest to the part as you braid. Tie the braids together in the back with a small elastic and before you pull the hair all the way through to make a ponytail, leave it in a cute little loop! If the hair is a little bit longer, you could do a tiny bun. Repeat this directly under the braid you just did so you have two rows and two loops.
We will have to be coming up with lots more short hair braids in the future, so be sure to give us a follow over at our newly redesigned blog Abella’s Braids to see more as we do them!
Thanks for reading! See you again this time next month!
love these ideas! My daughter recently cut about 8 inches off her hair and is loving her shorter hair, but I’ve mostly been at a loss of what to do with it! Thanks!
Abella has been begging me for at least a year, probably closer to two years, to cut her hair. I posted a photo on Instagram with a question in the caption. “Abella has been begging me to cut her hair short, do you think I should let her do it?” Almost everyone said “YES!” So thanks to all of the good advice from my followers, we did it…and we haven’t regretted it for a second! I think she looks so cute and it really fits her personality! It’s for sure a lot harder to come up with braids but it’s pushed me to step out of my comfort zone! We wanted to show you that even if you have short hair, there are lots of cute braids you can still do!
This first braid (above) is three ladder braids. Start out with a part deep to one side. On the side with less hair, start out by doing a waterfall braid along the part. Under that one, do another waterfall braid, but incorporate the waterfall pieces from the one above it as you braid. Under that one, do a french braid. Incorporate the waterfall pieces from the second braid as you go. We braided each one to the ends and used elastics that matched her hair to tie them off.
