As much as I love Photoshop, its an expensive program, however, there are lots on online photo editing tools available for FREE...here are 28 of them. Each tool offers a variety of tools to edit, distort, and have fun with. I used "Picnik" to do some color correction on a photo of Alex (my son) sneaking up on an unsuspecting sea urchin (no worries, no sea urchins were harmed while filming) Jeffrey Eckhardt (14) was the photographer...nice shot.
Life imitates toy models
Keith Loutit a Sydney, Australia-based photographer created a few very interesting tilt-shifted time-lapse short films. These short film clips give the viewer the impression that these are scenes of small models...very interesting and fun to view. " You can see more of his films on the Keith Loutit Vimeo page. Dave Allen is another creative person who used the tilt-shift lens filter in Photoshop to create a time-lapse video of three days at the Cranford Rose Garden at Brooklyn Botanic Garden.
Carl Warner is a London based photographer who takes photographing food to another level. All the images in his photos are food, truly amazing. Going to his flashed based website shows off his other work including people, non-food still life and locations.
There are several online photo editors available, however, FotoFlexer appears to be the most full-featured to date. Try it before logging in, I think you will find it is easy-to-use with many of the expected features you might expect; but I was pleasantly surprised by the "Geek" tab for advanced options in addition to allow saving multiple layers. For the novice users it has an "Add a face" option which I'm sure we can use to brighten someone's day, happy photo editing.
