If you haven’t been able to jump on the Waterlogue App band wagon, because you don’t own an iphone or ipad but would still like to create beautiful watercolors from your photos you came to the right place. I created a way for you to make stunning watercolors from your photos using the free version of PicMonkey. Yippeee, right??
All you need to do is follow along with the photo instructions to create your watercolor masterpiece. Step 1 – Open your photo in the Basic Edits section, open Exposure and bump up the brightness to 27, hit Apply.
Step 2 – Open Effects, and Orton, Move the Bloom to 50%, Brightness to 50%, Fade to 30%, and hit Apply.
Step 3 – Effects, open Soften, move Soften 50%, Fade to 50%, and hit Apply.
Step 4 – Effects, open Posterize and move Numbers of Colors to 30, Detail to 100%, Fade to 80%, and hit Apply.
Step 5 – Effects, open HDR move Radius to 1, Intensity to 600%, Fade to 79%, and hit Apply. You should now have a PicMonkey Watercolor.
I wanted to show you what this photo looks like using the Waterlogue App and the PicMonkey version. It’s not exactly the same but if you would like to try and create a watercolor and you don’t have an iphone or ipad this is the next best thing.
I hope you give it a try and create some beautiful artwork for your blog or home. Enjoy!
