Hello Everyone! As you know my previous posts were all about my terrible photos. I don’t know why I realized what I’m about to tell you right AFTER that theme but… such is life.
Back in October my husband and I got new iPhones. It came with new apps. In general I don’t care for new; I want things I am used to. I fear change. However, my husband was fooling around with the Clips app and it caught my attention. It looks like this on your phone
I’m sure this app can do a ton of different things but, true to form, I discovered one particular thing and it is the only thing I care about. It has a comic book filter. It is AMAZING! It makes your photos look like a comic book drawing. Every picture doesn’t look awesome with said filter but when it works, it really works!
We went on a trip to Florida last year and this is one of my favorite pics of my girls from that trip.
Look at it with the comic book filter! Isn’t it awesome!
This is the pic I have as my screen saver on my phone. I don’t know if it is only available on iPhones or other phones as well. But, if you do have an iPhone and want to try it follow theese steps:
1. Click on the app
2. Go to “library”
3. Select a photo
4. Hit the multicolored star in the bottom right corner
5. Scroll over to “comic book” and tap it
Yay, you did it! I do like the “ink” filter too. That is basically just a black and white comic book drawing. Both fantastic.
My husband and I were playing around with this app the other night and a whole new world opened up to me. We played with more pics of people
We played with buildings
Landscapes (Van Gogh anyone?)
And then I thought, why not do this with my food? Just like all other pictures, some look better than others but… look at these!
You might be seeing this more than you like from now on because I’m really excited about it.
Should I use comic book drawings instead of real pictures in my cookbook? What do you think? I’m really pushing to have it finished within the next month so I can get it published and have a book in my hand by the end of the year. I’m excited and scared and second guessing all my previous decisions… hence the photo question. I wouldn’t be able to do every picture with the comic book filter so it would be a mix of regular and comic book. Is that not cohesive enough? See, I’m all over the place. I need help. What is your opinion? Thanks everybody!
