Dumpr Fun

Although I'm always looking for ways to take better photos, it's true, I'm also always on the lookout for things to do with the (very) many poor photos I already own. I'm not good at deleting them (it's so final). I keep them, hoping I'll find a way to offer them a reprieve. And today I have one! It's Dumpr. I hadn't ever really played with silly photo effects until I found this. It's not a new idea, I know, but these are fun and quirky - and great for a disguise.

A very badly blurred shot in bad light?

Make it a sketch
A portrait with too much in the background?

Crop it tight and make him a star
A horse with an ego the size of a house?

Let him believe people really are looking
The very worst of the worst?

Little E, you've been papped
There are other things you can do too: I like Rubik's Cube and Christmas Ornament. But what I like best of all is that if you print them out, you have a story to tell. Maybe not the one you thought you had, but a story all the same. And you can scrapbook it.
