The Three Photo Effects in Luminar You’ll Fall in Love With

Posted · Category: Stock Photos

Every image, in every webpage you work on, should be flawless in terms of its quality, and its ability to fit with the concept or idea behind the page. An image should also fit in contextually with the accompanying text.

These considerations, and how cleverly you apply them, can make or break user perception of your website.

Images have three super-important roles to play:

  • They help us to better understand something.
  • They teach us how to use something, and;
  • They show us how something is done.

When you are tasked with building a more indie, artsy, or outside-the-envelope project, the images you use can take on an entirely new meaning. They could represent a departure from the norm, be used to establish a context, or help to tell a story.

Images are always an important part of your design work. To make them suitable for the task at hand, they often require a certain degree of processing before you feel comfortable using them. With that in mind, we’ve selected 3 photo effects in Luminar, (the only Mac photo editor that adapts to your style and skill level) that we are sure you’ll fall in love with.

1. Work with Presets

Presets offer the simplest way to give a web image a certain “wow” effect. They can, for example, be used to make a photo appear classic or edgy, or give it an ethereal quality.

This video gives a brief presentation on the use and power of presets in Luminar. Read the rest of this entry »

Placemat – Some Pretty Nice Placeholder Nouns for Sites

Posted · Category: CC License, Stock Photos

Placemat got some pretty nice placeholder nouns for your site. The three current endpoints are https://placem.at/people, https://placem.at/places, and https://placem.at/things. Any one of those will actually give you a valid image back on its own, but you probably want to do something a little bit fancier. The good news is that all three endpoints accept the same parameters, so there’s not too much to remember. Everything is controlled via a few simple query string parameters: width, height, text, text color, overlay color, overlay blend mode and etc…
