Film Photography Effects With Virtual Photographer Plugin

Garden blogger photography garden bloggers film photo effects with virtual photographer plug inThe Virtual Photographer plugin allows you to give film photography effects to your digital photos. It has been a couple of years since I used the Virtual Photographer plugin by OptikVerve labs and I have to say I'm still impressed by creativity this free plugin fosters in hobby digital photographers.

With a simple click of the mouse you can turn a boring photo into something that looks really unique that could help your photography stand out from all the other garden blogs. Take a look at the different effects I was able to give this photo of a ladybug on a poppy seed head. The image in the upper-left corner is the original.

You can use one of the dozens of preset effects or you can combine effects by layering images and blending the effects, if you use a more advance image editing software like Photoshop. What kind of images can you use Virtual Photographer for? Portraits work really well, as do some macros, landscapes and animals. You don't need Photoshop to use Virtual Photographer it also works with Photoshop Elements, Paint Shop Pro, Photo-Paint and some other of the popular imaging applications. Alternately, you could download and install VirtualStudio by the same company that comes with Virtual Photographer built in if your image editing application doesn't support the Virtual Photographer plugin.

As with all downloads make the specs of your computer qualify to use it and all download at your own risk.

  3. Goldmorning,

    Not really sure how you'd go about removing the title like that. The only things I can think of would be kinda sloppy and defeat other features of your blog, like post pages and probably the feed.

    Do you mean you want to change the comments from popping out or you want to change the style of the graphics in the pop-out window? If you have comments that pop out, I don't think there is a way to customize any of that. There is lots of customizing options for the comments though if you embed them below your posts like the ones here.
