Hey y’all! Hope you are well. Recently, I have been experimenting with making and using my own overlays in my app Pixlr. I usually play around with the initial image using only the manipulation tools (sometimes not at all!) and then add an overlay of the same picture or a different one (or more) that I have taken, using the ‘double exposure’ feature.
From there, I go through the types of overlays and just see what feels right to me. My fav type is the ‘negative’ as it can bring out some pretty rad colours!
After that, the sky’s the limit really. I just have fun with the overlay(s). I’ll go back to the manipulation tools and play with it til it looks and feels right. My go-to manipulation tools are hue, contrast, vibrance and saturation (I love bold ok?)
These pics were made without any pre-made overlays:
Try it yourself! I think I’ll attempt to film a demo for you soon! 🙂 I’m also going to go find links to the app, and add them here later. I believe Pixlr is available for iOS and Android. It is also available on apple desktop computers. Not sure about PC yet, but again, Ima gonna check 🙂
~ Peace my fine humans!
