  • Coreluv

    Did you know that out of every 11 children in the world, 1 is orphaned? In fact, more than 5,760 children become orphans every day.

    Coreluv has made it their mission to bring hope and love to orphans all around the world. To do this, this organization has partnered with many communities and orphanages around the world. They work with impoverished areas to provide orphans with their basic needs, including: clean water, proper food, healthcare, education, job skills, and a loving home. Many of these are luxuries that orphans cannot afford on their own  - especially ones in impoverished areas.

    Coreluv terms the month of November as "Defend the Orphan Month." Their goal is to provide local churches with creative resources and steps for everyone to contribute to the cause. Participating churches will receive a free welcome it with resources. This year, on November 19, 2016, Coreluv will also be hosting their 2nd annual Defend the Orphan 5 K! This event takes place in Montgomery, Texas and will be a chip-timed trail run. There will also be many other forms of entertainment as well. Everyone is welcome to register!

    Why do people take pictures of landscapes? 
    One of the best reasons would simply be to capture a great experience or moment - whether it be from traveling, exploring, or from an everyday view. Many other people consider it a hobby to catch nature in its simplest and most extravagant form. Landscape photos usually do no contain any people, since they're often meant to portray nature as the main subject.

    What are some typical landscape subjects? 
    A great landscape photo can just be one of nature. Forests, oceans, rivers, mountains, and clouds are all great examples of the best types of things to capture. However, some subjects may require a special camera to capture the best photo. For example, underwater pictures are best taken with a waterproof camera.

    Why print a landscape photo on wood grain?
    Printing on wood is the best way to enhance the natural beauty of your photo. Once printed, the natural wood finish adds a richer, more vibrant result to the landscape. The wood grain showing through the photos gives a natural feel and adds a unique look to the portrait. It's the best way to make a good photo appear even greater.

    Photos on wood are also great for decorating, designing, and for adding the finishing touches to your home. Everyone will be sure to appreciate the beauty of the natural portrait.

  • App Review: Snapseed

    It seems as though today, everyone has a high powered digital camera in their back pocket or purse, capable of taking stunning images at the slight tap of a finger. But if you ask me, what good is a nice phone camera without the right tools to get the most out of your photos? I've just downloaded Snapseed, one of the most popular editing apps out there. The Google-owned photo app claims to enhance your scenic landscapes and selfies in a quick and easy way, allowing you to showcase them at their fullest potential. Today, we'll put this claim to the test.

    Snapseed loads swiftly to a clean minimalist screen that features an "open photo" button which allows you to capture a picture or grab one from your photo-stream.

    As usual, I scrolled through the archives and found something I could put to work.

    Tapping on the bottom right icon leads you to the editing options which separates the sections by tools and filters. In tools, you've got the standard controls, like Crop, Rotate, and Tune Image which we'll check out a bit.

    After hitting the Tune Image button, you're lead to back to the photo-page to begin editing.

    Fingers ready to swipe and slide, I scanned the screen, looking for the editing toolbar. Now, this usually lays below the screen or to the side. After a few seconds of experimentation, I found that this app operates with a interface completely different from that of its competitors.

     

    Swiping up and down on the photo selects the effect and swiping right to left adjust its strength. Odd chance you get confused, there's a vertical ellipses that rests in the top right corner. tapping on it leads you a number of options including Help & Feedback.

    Back to Tune Image, If you're new to the world of photo-editing or you simply don't feel like toying around with adjustments, Snapseed makes things easy for you by giving an Auto Correct button. At the swift tap of  a button, Snapseed corrects your image's contrast and color. I applied that then swiped down to see what else the tools had in store.

    With the Tune Image tool , I tweaked the brightness a bit, decreased warmth, increased saturation, and increased the highlights. Usually, there's no way I would remember all these steps. The app comes in handy here, by showing my action history when I select the middle button in the top right.

    The photo app takes things a step further with its Selective Adjust tool. With this feature, you can select a section of your photo to be adjusted in brightness, contrast, or saturation. You're also given the options to cut, delete, or expand the area affected. I decided to go with a simple effect here and increased the saturation of the center.

    And now for the good stuff, FILTERS. Snapseed offers 12 filters with an even wider array of options for each filter. After testing out a few filters, I went with Retrolux

    Looking to give my photo a little bit of a kick, I added a frame which I soon realized wasn't working out. If you decide to undo an edit, as I have, you can tap the vertical ellipses menu  which holds the options "undo, redo, and revert"
    unnamed-1 I hit undo, and decided to stick with this as my final product. What a beaut! Once you've made the adjustments to your liking, you can head to back to the vertical ellipses button to share or open your photo in another app.

    Not a bad photo editing app, it has all the basic features plus a few extra, I give it 3 stars.  Definitely will work to make a beautiful custom print on wood
