Double exposure at its best

Double exposure is when you fuse two or more images together to create a single image. Usually, double exposure images have got a romantic touch and are extremely artsy. If blending photos together is your passion, then you can get inspired by these awesome edits made by our user Vladimir.

Background and foreground changes

All those great benefits that Pixomatic offers can be achieved roughly through playing with background and foreground images. If you are trying to post a photo on an eCommerce website and you need a white background, you can get it with Pixomatic. It’s so easy!

Or if you have taken a photo in which the background sucks, you can simply cut yourself or anything out of the image and replace the background. Do anything you want! Try any background and add any new object in the foreground. Feel the pleasure of experimenting. Become a self-made graphic designer, it’s so easy when you are using Pixomatic. You can watch a few YouTube video tutorials to become a real pro.

Artistic effects that hit Instagram

Our users post their edits on social media channels like Instagram and Twitter under hashtags #Pixomatic, #Pixomatic_app and #PixomaticApp. We have noticed that our artistic effects have been used quite a lot lately. See some of them below:

Artistic effects help create astounding images. Usually, people post them on social media channels or use as cover images for blog posts or articles. If you are opting for this type of edits for your blog, make sure your articles are somehow related to art, music, and/or nature. Of course, possibilities are endless and you are in no way restricted as to how and where to use your edits. You can always experiment to see what goes well with your articles or the niche you have chosen for your Instagram. Did I tell you that choosing a niche for your Instagram posts and sticking to it will increase your chances of getting more followers?

Surreal photo manipulations

These are our users’ another favorite. It’s when the person starts unleashing their creativity through the simple iPhone photo editor. And they do not need costly software or difficult tools to get the desired results. Pixomatic users usually take free stock images from Unsplash, Pexels, or Pixabay and start creating. Have a look at a few surreal pieces below:

Photos that include animals in them are also popular. Sometimes, our users go beyond the standard by playing with the sizes and proportions. As a result, animals might appear either much bigger or smaller than they actually are. And that is really surreal. See yourself!

Leslie Exmann is yet another user whose surreal edits we love. If you look at Leslie’s images, you will notice one common thing in all of them. He adds people and animals somewhere really unexpected. For example, in this image, you can see an octopus, a lady, and a diver. What a combination!

Deputy headteacher, Apple Distinguished Educator class 2015 Dan Oakes, Teach Primary contributor, is another user who has created a very unique surreal image with Pixomatic and has written a whole article about it on his personal blog. We love how he describes each stage of his edit with accuracy and precision.

Also, at the Malmesbury Regional Training Center, Dan’s pupils have created digital stories using Pixomatic app. The whole idea is that the pupils had to use the app to make completely original images of animals in contexts you wouldn’t normally find them. For example, in one of the stories, you can learn about the “Sea Rhino” who meets fish, dolphins, and turtles during his sea journey.

Animate 2 Educate delivers curriculum-based animation, green screen, and movie making workshops to pupils in schools throughout the UK. These awesome people focus on the use of technology more specifically, iPads in education. In the company’s Twitter page @Animate2Educate you can see educational posts which have been created with the help of our app. And we are so proud to see that along with its many other uses, Pixomatic is being used for educational purposes as well.

We love how Pixomatic user base grows in number each and every day. And how our users get inspired by one another. And also how they get motivated when featured on our different channels. The Pixomatic team is always here to provide support and to offer the newest and the best features ever. Btw, have you checked out our new animal stickers yet?!

Guys, you are awesome. Keep rocking!
