Snappy H’appy Photo Challenge – Week 11

We live in a Flat and Firebonnet, co-host a really awesome photography challenge that helps you learn about post processing your photos and different photo effects. I have only been participating a few weeks and have learnt so much already. You end up with a nice challenger grid of photos at the end. There is only  two weeks left, so be quick to jump on board….

This week the challenge is to use text on a photo:

Here is my picture/s:

(I have not posted the original, because it is pretty clear what it would look like without the badge)

– using the recommended app Moldiv: a badge for my Monday Mystery Photo feature on my blog.

Mondaymysteryphoto A much more limited was using the effects through Picasa, a standard program I have on my desktop. I think the text needs a box and perhaps I should have stuck with black writing.

What do you think?



So I went back to Moldiv, and created a couple of cool text effects. However, I found once I had applied the text, I couldn’t get back in to edit it again, if the colour wasn’t right…. hence this not quite right green colour….


But I had so much fun and can see endless possibilities for this. Even in its basic form, a personalized signature on the photo would be really useful.


Thanks so much Weliveinaflat. You have given me something to ponder about.

Scandinavian culture, literature and traditions are close to my heart, even though I am Australian. I have Scandinavian, Frisian and Prussian/Silesian ancestry and for that reason, I feel a connection with that part of the world. I am an avid Nordic Crime fiction reader, and enjoy photography, writing and a variety of cooking and crafts, and traditional decorative art forms. Politically aware and egalitarian by nature, I have a strong environmental bent.

    I’m still trying to find a good text editor myself! I really don’t like it when I can’t go back in and edit the text. I’m working with Studio at the moment and at least that one has layers. But I also like to have a large number of fonts to choose from…
    You did a great job making your way around Moldiv and Picasa (not one I’ve used much). And those luggage tags ARE beautiful.
