I enjoy using Smart Photo Editor to come up with new looks for my images. Sometimes I just get an idea by browsing their extensive library of over 6,000 effects and then make my own version in Photoshop… other times I like exactly what it does in their software.
This program operates on its own, so you do not need Photoshop or Lightroom to enjoy it.
The software is $29.95 and you can get an additional 10% with my code of LL1914.
All of these images were photographed with my Canon 5D Mark II and a Tamron 90mm macro lens.
The upper left is the original photo using a background of greenery I photographed defocused to get the blur of color. I printed the image and mounted it on foamcore to use indoors or in the garden.
The flower is a Frizzle Sizzle pansy. I was buying some plants at a local nursery and they were getting ready to dump a whole flat (18 – 4″ plants). Lucky me… she gave me the whole flat! The plants needed a some cleaning up but it didn’t take me long and they now surround my mailbox. Love the ruffly edge.
