Create #17: Jazzing up your photos Part II

By Gillian Allard

In my Photo Journey, I used unusual camera angles to tell a story in three images. Here are those images again—jazzed up using Pixlr.

Now that you’ve got Pixlr on your phone, you can create all sorts of effects to jazz up your photographs, too.

I  hope you enjoy applying these techniques to your photographs; the effects can be quite stunning.

Please do share your images with us, either by email to or by text to 07857 002974, so that we can publish them on the blog site gallery, for everyone to enjoy.
