Have you heard of Big Huge Labs?
It is an awesome site that lets you do some fun things with your photos. (In a recent post, I told you all about Picnik...and I am still a huge fan!) I take hundreds of pictures every week so I am constantly looking for ways to add words or new things to my photos. My favorite thing about this site is that it is completely free! There is also an option to have your creations printed or to share them on Facebook or Flickr. I haven't used the printing yet, but I have used several of the features on my blog. There are many more cool things about the site that I do not mention below, so be sure to check it out for yourself!!
Today, I would like to show you a couple of my favorite things to do with Big Huge Labs!
1. Make a mosaic. I love to make mosaics with my own photos....but I also like to create a mosaic of things that are inspiring me on Fickr. BigHugeLabs lets me create a mosaic of my faves or of a photoset by an artist and share the pictures on my blog....while easily creating a link back to the photo credits!
I have been really inspired by this artist lately:
1. how to fold girls, 2. deer geometry, 3. i have a lot to say moleskine, 4. more aceo friends, 5. aceo friends, 6. good morning to you, 7. for my heartbroken friend, 8. i'm ok, 9. untitled, 10. wishing, 11. he might hear you, 12. ok now, 13. untitled, 14. let's put our heads together, 15. keeping secrets, 16. out on my limbs
2. Filters. I know that most of these things can also be done with a program like Photoshop...but that program is so big that it often bogs down my computer and makes it difficult to run more than one program at a time. Anyway, BigHugeLabs has lots of cool free filters for your photos.
Here is a really cool filmstrip option:
3. Frames. I absolutely love the frames that are available for the photos. For free.
