Great filters to enhance your photos

There are a lot of great filters to enhance your photos and transform them into a gorgeous piece for your scrapbook and art journaling projects, and the best part is that you don’t need to own a complex graphic software, many of these apps are free or very affordable, can simply be installed on your phone and many don’t require internet connection to be used.

This is a photo of the Palace of fine Arts in the Marina District of San Francisco, a magic place surrounded by gardens where you can take a lot of gorgeous pictures, even wedding pictures. As you can see, the “before photo” is really nice and crisp, but it needed a little bit of something extra to add it to Instagram, so here is the list of filters I applied:

Apps used:

Picfx app

Instagram.

Steps:

Very simple! I opened the original photo in Picfx app, went to Classics and applied the Olden filter. Somehow this filter turned the sky turquoise and it seems that also added a little bit of a texture. Then, in the same app, I went to Light and selected the filter Hearts Small, this filter applied the gorgeous bokeh effect. I saved the new picture to my phone and then loaded it on Instagram where I just used the filter Slumber to add that dusty, vintage look.
