{Freebie Friday} Fotor: Free Online Photo Editor


Happy Friday, everyone! Today, I’m excited to introduce Fotor, a free online photo editor. I played around with it and I just love all the options! The above collage was put together on Fotor. They have a variety of preset collage templates to choose from, but you can customize it from there! Want no white border? A different border? Filters? You can change it all!

The photos above for for Lan Su Gardens in Portland, OR. They are one of the venues we are looking at for the wedding. I just uploaded the pictures from my computer (you can also grab them from the web, your Facebook, webcam, Picasa, etc.) and dragged them into the template. I applied a warm filter to give it an instagram or vintage postcard look. Everything is super user friendly. You can then add text (all fonts installed on your computer are options). I used the font Lighthouse (for personal use) above.

There are also plenty of clip art options you can insert and you can even make personalized greeting cards!

What are you going to edit or create with Fotor?

Portland based Leah Flores is inspiring me with her hand lettering combined with retro feel photography for a match made in heaven. A and I used to get excited when we discovered a new place in the neighborhood and beyond and we’d just look at each other and say “Adventure!” (yes, we’re total dorks like that). I definitely need to order some prints, but which ones?

I love Liesl Pfeffer’s photograph collages. They make me look at each photograph so much more close and also the big picture at the same time.

{Loved & Noted} Colored Pencil Personalities, Instagram Custom Shoes, & DIY 3D Camera


I’m feeling colorful today (when am I not?).

I love these colored pencil personalities. Which one are you?

Did you hear that they’re making custom Nikes based on your instagram photos now (via Apartment Therapy)?

I’m not sure if you know, but I’m really into 3D cameras. I collect vintage ones and always have a Viewmaster Camera loaded and ready. But this DIY 3D camera with disposable cameras (via Giver’s Log) is definitely more economical and crafty!

What’s inspiring you today?

The {Loved & Noted} series touches on inspiration from creatives and fellow bloggers all over the world.

Aren’t these time lapse photos amazing? They look like paintings. I wish I could have a mural sized version in my house. The colors are just mesmerizing. With the recent summer heat, I feel like I can almost feel the colors coming through!

{Wish I Was Wednesday} Taisuke Koyama


The “Melting Rainbows” series by Taisuke Koyama is so intriguing. He placed inkjet prints of his previous series “Rainbow Form” on his balcony to see how nature interacted with them. The results are so beautiful and unexpected.
