Who needs a good camera nowadays?

Pin It
After the beauty of Instagram, anyone can make beautiful images with little or no experience with their point-and-shoot. The one frustration I had about being a blogger is the fact I have a very simple-made-for-birthday-party-pictures-little-zoom-no-fancyness camera. I felt like all my pictures were quite bad, and as a photography major, I could just feel the shame…

Well, not anymore. Although I know how to mess around in Photoshop, I currently don’t have one and refuse to dish out the cash to get it. So how happy was I to find PicMonkey?

Here is an example. This is the picture I started out with:

And here are some results I got after playing around with it:

Cinerama filter

Holga filter

Change in saturation and rounded frame

Change in color and Polaroid frame

All for free, no registration required, and I got to save all pics. Hurry to chek it out! It’s free, for now at least!
