Neodigital Art: colour

Digital cameras will quite often produce bright colours. I prefer the shades in this picture. The edit makes it look like a stamp and so more interesting. This image is at 300 dpi and it was taken with my Nikon D3200. If you’re having a photo enlarged or entering it for a competition, they often have to be at 300 dpi.

This photo is interesting but I wouldn’t describe it as artistic. I don’t think I can do very much in editing to make it artistic either.


The grey scale of this picture conveys a mood. The atmosphere of the industrial Black Country can be seen. Notice that the factory is quite in focus but the rest of the image is out of focus. You can do that with PhotoScape.

part in focus

This is the same factory, again in focus, but the colour dictates the mood. Notice that the background is out of focus. I blurred the road surface too.


I didn’t take this photo, but use it to demonstrate the editing. I think it’s very different from the original and so fair use. You can do an edit in PhotoScape like this from a photo, making it look like a drawing.

I tend to think of sepia as belonging to the Victorian era and if you add a little green, it tends to look Edwardian. Try using colorize to add different tints for different effects and experiment. You can find lots of photos on the internet to experiment on, but please don’t breach copyrights.

  2. Hi Mike, Love the stamp photo! Royal Mail should hire you!

    My favourite photo this week is the factory. I could see that being the opening scene in a movie. The photo is powerful but your editing is what gives that image impact.

    The drawing of the girl is an interesting use of editing. I think kids would get a big kick out out of this editing feature!

    • Hi Carolyn,

      Wait until you see this week’s edits. I went out taking lots of photos this week. I covered the switching on of the Christmas lights and on Sunday photographed canal boats and more Christmas lights and Christmas trees! I saw the factory one on Pinterest. Thanks.
