Have you heard??? Louis, the Director of Arts and Entertainment and I, Jakey, the director of Artistic Services, have combined our departments!!
Now, we won't be making too many changes, mostly you will be able to find a Tutorials Page both HERE, at Dory's Backyard, AND over HERE, at the Blogville Arts and Entertainment page!!
Have you seen the February A & E Challenge yet, it's Self Pawtraits!!! Click HERE to read all about the challenge! The Dead Lion of February 15th is very firm, so make sure to get those entries in.
The Self Pawtrait Gallery will open on February 25th!
Today and tomorrow we will be doing two different tutorials for this challenge. Today's tutorial will be how to do an artistic self pawtrait on Pizap and tomorrow we will be doing an additional tutorial on how to turn your self pawtrait into art on PicMonkey!!
Let's get started!
For the Pizap Self Pawtrait, Dory has agreed to be my Super Model and the picture above is the original picture we used! Before we get underway, we want to tell you that the Pizap App is available for your phone, tablet AND computer. This means your assistant can take your picture and edit it, then send it all on any device you might have!
We also want to let you know there are MANY different Applications available to "Art-ify" your self portrait, just search for "Photo Effects" on the device you are using....just be careful, we know our assistant (aka Mama) loses track of time when she starts playing with pictures and sometimes dinner ends up being LATE!!
Now, back to our tutorial!
First, let's go to Pizap.com and hit the big green Start button!!
Next, click the edit button!
We keep all our photos on our computer, so we click the "Computer" icon here!
Choose the photo you want to use, and click Open
Click the magic wand at the top of the screen to bring up the Pizap effects!
Pizap Pro, you will have a few more options.
Make sure to have fun trying each one out!
Here are only a few we tried:
...and the Grape Pow Filter!!
save the photo someplace they will remember!
...an TADA!!! You have an Artistic Pawtrait that is out of this world (teeheehee)!!
Make sure to turn in tomorrow when we show you the pawsibilities in
