Day 501 – Photoshop Express 

    Another free download is Photoshop Epxress. Great for doctoring those thousand photos you took on grey days in France. Easy enough that my three year old grandson had fun using it. He loved clicking on the different photo effects and changing the pictures.

Before Photoshop express. Big difference. 



Before Photoshop express- taken into the sun. Never a good idea but sometimes the only choice.

A lot of fun. Go download it and have fun exploring.

 500 days of posting and I only meant to do 50-100 daily posts. And here I am at 500 daily posts. What a journey. No idea when I will stop. 


 On the I planned what I would post. Two pieces of software- Waterlogue and Photoshop Express. I have them on my iPhone and my iPad. I think they are both FREE which is always a plus.

  Color Bloom

So what is Waterlogue?! You can turn any photo into a watercolor painting. How fun is that. I have seen some on Instagram that are unbelievable. 


I think it does a better job on architecture than people. It seems to leave out features such as an eye. Oops. 

But I just started using it and it has a lot of options I have not figured out yet. 12 different wc styles and then u can darken them or lighten them. Change the size. Fun stuff.  I made a dozen Eiffel towers in seconds. 

Blotted and illustration

You can save a “painting” open it and add more colors like I did with this one. Lots of fun. Tomorrow Photoshop express. Also a lot of fun.

 Here’s the original photo. 
Thanks for reading. Go make some watercolors.
