Photo-A-Day #1784

The other day I talked about how one door closed and right away a window opened. The community over at ShutterCal was not receptive to guest bloggers. However, Zac Johnson liked what I’ve been doing over at Blogging Tips so much that he asked me if I would write for as well. Today I wrote my first post there titled – Add Stylish Effects to your Photos. The post is all about an online tool called Rollip that I used to create today’s photo.

After creating the post for RoyalTutorial I figured I would also use Rollip to make an image today. I learned about via an e-mail inquiry a while ago. I didn’t get a chance to get to it then but am happy to finally talk about it on

It has been dreary and rainy here and I’ve pretty much had enough of being cooped up in the house. I saw an opportunity to take a cute shot of Eva and then run it through Rollip to make it look like one of those old weathered photos from the 70s. I actually ran the image through 3 times and took all three images and played around with opacity on the layers to get the look here.

    Dude, that write up was great.
    Sorry it didn’t work out, you’ve got a great talent.

      Yeah, it didn’t work out but I have no hard feelings towards you or the ShutterCal staff, you guys have created an amazing service that I wish more people would use. Have you ever thought about having an easy way for people to tweet out their latest photo? Or a reminder service to let people know that they haven’t taken the photo for the day? I wish nothing but the best for ShutterCal and I am still determined to go through all 1780+ photos of mine and post them there and change all of my old posts to reflect that. I will get there someday.

    Great photo editing. I’ll have to look through some of my old photos to see the look of them. It’s been awhile since I did that.

      Thanks very much. The guest postings have been working really very well. I’ve got to keep it up to have good stuff to provide to people each week though and that can get tough.
