Turning digital photos into art

Turning Photos into art

Have you ever tried turning your digital photos into a piece of artwork?

Itís actually not that difficult using a program such as Adobe Photoshop or the lighter version Adobe Elements. Itís simply a matter of using the right filters provided in these programs to convert your photographic image into an artistic representation. The filters can offer a variety of effects including watercolor, crayon,

After converting the image you may want to have it printed on a textured canvas which some print shops and a number of online photo printing services provide as part of their customer service.

You may have seen examples of canvas art which is currently very popular but can actually be quite expensive to buy. So why not create your own? By carefully choosing a suitable image from your digital photo collection, then adding a suitable digital art effect, you could quite easily produce something that could be just as good, if not better than the canvas art you see selling in the shops.

3 Types of Photographs to Use on Canvas Art
By Matt Jackson

Canvas art can be bought in most interior design and even DIY shops, but it can be very difficult to get the exact image you want. Personalised canvas art, on the other hand, allows for the use of the image or pictures of your choice so that the end result isn't just great looking canvas art but fully personalised and entire unique canvas prints.

Family And Friends

Pictures of family members and friends always make good, customised canvas art. Using quality woven canvas helps ensure that you enjoy the very best image reproduction, the clearest in colours, and the longest life from your canvas art. You can use photos of individuals or the entire family unit and canvas art of a newborn baby can be used to brighten up the room, display your favourite photos, and show off a newborn son or baby; the perfect keepsake as well as a beautiful piece of wall art.

Places

From your favourite holiday destination to the mountain that you finally beat last year, there are many different destinations that can make excellent canvas art subjects. You can even use a photograph of your own home, one of the new office building you're just bought, or a picture of your family home to help cheer you up when you feel homesick. Of course, there's nothing to say you need to have visited the place in order to enjoy displaying its picture on the wall.

Nature

Nature photographs and pictures can cheer up any room. They tend to add colour to a neutral room while natural items like plants, flowers, or even entire scenes of natural surroundings can encourage peace and harmony from the room and everybody in it; good looking and tranquil nature pictures are always popular when it comes to the creation of canvas art so why not choose your own picture with the colours that most suit your room and even your mood.

Bags of Love
canvas art is an entirely unique type of canvas art because it can be customised completely to include the picture of your choice. From family to flowers and beaches to mountains you can display any picture you want on custom canvas prints to great effect.
