In which Spencer sees the reader every morning at the coffee shop.

“Nature, wildlife, landscape, and more A place for me to post my experiments with photography in general. Currently I am using a Pentax K3ii, many of my older photos are taken with a Pentax K50. I enjoy photographing nature, animals, and interesting architecture. I am disabled and have chronic pain, so there are probably some times when I won’t post anything of my own work for a while. All photos are mine unless reblogged from someone else, all work reblogged will be credited. (No weheartit or pinterest here).

Long Post on How I Make Aesthetic Collages

Since I’ve gotten so many questions about how I do these/ where I go/ what I use/ etc, here’s a handy play-by-play guide on how you can make an emo hipster collage on your phone from your couch as you binge-watch Desperate Housewives for the eight time.

It starts with a trip to Pinterest

Usually the inspiration comes from seeing something that’s so on point for a character, it suddenly becomes my civic duty to make a aesthetic post with it.

Now to spend what feels like (and occasionally is) several hours of browsing for the rest of the pictures (my tip is to use the keyword for what you’re looking for + photography - ex: “dark photography”). Make sure to look in the related pins if you find something close but not quite there. Most of what I find isn’t in the direct results.

If Pinterest doesn’t bring up anything good, I’ll use show screenshots, check out weheartit, or even Google, but about 95% of everything I’ve used has come from Pinterest.  

Now that I have more pictures, I open PicsArt (yes, it’s available for android).  

Press the plus sign

Choose Collages > Grid > Portrait. 8 seems pretty standard for most aesthetic collages you’ll find, but I use the 6-photo one because I’m still a lazy fuck.

Choose all your pictures 

Take the border down to 0% and rearrange the pictures in the order you want them.

Cool, but some of the pictures need fixing. The one on the top right needs to be cropped. 

I choose a couple others that are a bit too bright for the scheme I want and press FX.

Pick whatever filter to make it match up with your ~vision~. 

After making all the individual changes, press the check mark.

The check mark will make the collage into one solid picture, and more editing options will become available. 

I always save before making any other changes. After saving, you can pick another filter to make everything uniform. Or open tools to adjust brightness/contrast and all that other stuff. Those are better for individual photo editing though. Once again, these other options aren’t available when you edit in the first stage of your collage, so if you have a picture that requires more than a filter, do that before starting your collage.

Congrats! It’s an aesthetic post.

I’ll usually do 2-5 other versions for a collage, using different filters or putting the pictures in different orders until I’m satisfied. Then I’ll compare them in drafts and post whichever I like best.

Hope this was helpful!

Title: When Hermione Met Draco
Summary: A very Muggle accident leads to an unusual, twelve-year-long friendship between Hermione and Draco. But is that all that it is? HG/DM. EWE. Post-War. Non-Canon pairing. AU. Loosely based from “When Harry Met Sally”.
Status: WIP, to be posted soon.
Disclaimer: The Harry Potter universe belongs to J.K. Rowling. The story, however, is written and owned by stllrmno; therefore, non-permitted reproduction of this work is considered illegal. Photos for the banner are taken from weheartit.
Author’s Note: I know that I’m still working Breathe Again but I couldn’t, for the life of me, get this idea out of my head. I’ve had this for quite a while now, and I just decided to write it. Stay tuned for the updates! ‘Til next time!

starshaping  asked:

Ooooh, just saw your edits and I'm in love! They are so beautiful and you are so talented! ♥

Also, if you don’t mind me asking, where do you find your pictures at? They’re all so well matched and breathtaking! Your color matching is phenomenal, oh my gosh.

Wow thank you so much for these lovely messages, they were an amazing thing to wake up to! I get my pictures from Pinterest and Weheartit, except for the face claim photos, which I usually find on modeling agency websites. :)

anonymous asked:

Hey girl hey I just wanna know Where do you find all the pictures of the girlfriends and couple pictures. And could you post them please because they are so cute. I love your blog

~helloooo~
 so here’s the thing, i usually just check weheartit for couple photos and pick and choose which ones go with the theme. Like since the boys i write for are korean, i try to find korean couples, if that makes sense. 

i could make a board on Pinterest with all the pictures but the thing is i delete most of them from my phone the minute im done using them, so it’s gonna be super hard to do and i’d rather not go through all the trouble. BUT if you really do want it, i can link you to a board that has similar stuff. 

Here!

~hope i answered your question :)~

This is the full photo for my new header, I found it on WeHeartIt and I wanted to post it with the watermark so everyone cash see the amazing artist. I believe that says amywebberson.tumblr.com if I am correct. All credit goes to that person on this amazing Schuyler Sisters x Disney crossover, the watermark got cut off from the positioning but THIS IS THEIR ART

EDIT: As pointed out by @prismatic-bell this is actually by @amymebberson not webberson and apparently you can @ people which is useful

imminentalpha  asked:

HUGE fan of your bleach social media au. Was wondering where you get your photos from? I see all sorts of aesthetic boards and social media pages for characters going around but I can never find good photos on sites like WeHeartIt or Pinterest.

My Bleach fam ❤️The SM AU is one if my favorite work I have ever done, I have so much fun doing it, about the pictures I take them from google images 😂 I just look for what I want really deep, is exhausting but it was fun to me. Other thing I did was look into the pictures of the person I was using for a character, to keep continuity lol.

I understand that sometimes you find a photo on weheartit and you don’t know where it came from, but you get excited and repost it. But if the owner of that photo actually sees it and lets you know that they don’t want people reposting it, please be classy about it.

Please understand that they are not accusing you of claiming to have taken the photo yourself. They just know that someone (not necessarily you) cropped off the watermark and reposted it without permission, and now they want to undo the damage.

And please don’t be like parrilla.af and post it AGAIN just to be “a rebel.” You are not a rebel. You are not fighting for a just cause. You are being a disrespectful jerk.

Respect photographers and artists. Don’t repost without permission.

And for goodness sake, don’t save photos from a den of thieves like weheartit and expect that all the photos there are shared with permission.

Transit: a playlist

Life is as hectic as possible. My days are composed of leaving the house early and coming home late. It’s exhausting but maybe I just need time to get used to it. I’ve been riding the train almost everyday now to get to the office. The trip is quite long so I always put my earphones on and drift off to another world. On times like these, I like staring out the window while listening to music that calms me down in a world where life is so fast-paced.

Hello, the Tumblr. Your friendly neighbourhood Marciana here, back again with another friendly reminder about reposts and reblogs, and why one of them is good and the other is bad. This post is going to be a bit long, but bear with me.

Now I’ve been seeing quite a lot of reposts happening in some of my tracked tags, and it’s just not okay. But then again, some people might be NEW to the whole concept of reposts vs reblogs, so here’s your overview.

“Reblog” is when you see a post that you like, either on your dashboard or in the tags, and click on the small icon on the lower right corner of the post and click “REBLOG” to put it in your blag. Very simple, three steps at the most.

“Reposts” are when original posts, fanart and/or graphics such as edits/manips and GIFs/GIFsets made by other people are posted by OTHER people who did NOT create them, for various reasons. Reposting happens in a few ways:

  • Saving the fanart/graphic/GIF/s to your own computer,uploading to Tumblr all over again, making an entire new post on your own blog, not giving credit or sourcing back to the original source/creator.
  • Taking a screenshot of the single post you like (be it a joke, or a gifset, or an edit, what have you), cropping the screenshot in a photo manipulating program (Paint, Photoshop, Photoscape, Gimp, etc.), uploading the screenshot to Tumblr, making a post with the screenshot, no link back to the original nor permission from the original post’s creator
  • WeHeartIt, Rebloggy or something like that (I’m not sure I’ve only seen it for a couple of days), or other image archiving/blogging website that does not link back to the original source on the internet of the picture or content of the picture

So as you can see, it takes a whole lot more effort to repost than to just reblog, but that’s not the only reasaon that reposts are frowned upon. Reposts essentially take the credit (and the notes) away from the original creators/artists/editors, even though that may not be the intent of the reposter. It’s like doing someone’s homework for them and then watching them take all the credit when their homework turns out to be perfect but their paper got graded and/or noticed before yours. Of course, it’s understandable that a blogger would like to be found by interesting people, they want the notes and the followers, and for others, reposting other people’s fanart, edits and graphics is a way of appreciating what they’ve done. But there are PLENTY of other ways of doing that without violating copyright policies as set in Tumblr’s rules and regulations.

“But Marciana,” you point out, “What if we’d REALLY like to post them on our own blog so that people going through the tags can find us, like us and hopefully follow us?” Then please do not hesitate to ask permission from the original creators/artists. Some will say yes, others will say no. Whatever the decision, be respectful of it. Saying “I do what I want” and going through with the repost anyway doesn’t make you a cool rebel, it just makes you a jerk that can easily be reported to Tumblr staff through a specific e-mail address. Several posts AND blogs have already been deleted and suspended because of serial violations of the copyright laws of Tumblr, which now thankfully also cover GIFsets. In the event that the original source gives their permission, please do not forget to link back to the original post. Other artists will be fine with you leaving their name/Tumblr URL in the post as a source, but the point is to ask first. If in case you can’t find the original source anymore, make sure to say so in your post. “I can’t find the original source, if this is yours, please let me know so I can properly ask your permission/give you credit.”

Oh, and please take note: WeHeartIt is not a legitimate source, as it archives photos from all over the internet and NEVER links back to their original sources when you post them here on Tumblr.

“Okay fine,” you say, “But what about using people’s jpgs and gifs as reactions to posts? How is that different from illegal reposting?” To be honest, it’s not VERY different, except for the fact that if you use someone’s jpg or gif as a reaction, it’s not really seen as you claiming it for your own. Almost everyone on Tumblr is using everyone else’s stuff for reaction anyway that at this point, this has become the gray area. Still, if the jpg or gif you want to use is watermarked with the creator’s URL, ask permission to use their stuff if you want to be very sure.

While we’re on the subject of permission, let me bring up one more permission issue that needs to be talked about. Some people are very good at ‘shopping pictures together for shipping or ficcing purposes. That’s all well and good, until you cross a certain line. There are pictures out there of fans with their favorite celebrities or actors that they’ve met, and these shots usually make for good posing for shippy pictures. The problem with doing that is that some people will callously cut the fan out of their own picture, which is their representation of a special day or moment that they had, to serve someone else’s purpose. This can be, and has been, very, very disrespectful of the fans, who only uploaded their pics in the first place to share the fun with the fandom. I’ve asked in the future for people to please stop doing this, but of course, thats not going to happen in a flash. If you’re going to insist on doing it, get permission from the original blogger of the picture, and for the love of fandom, please respect whatever answer they give you. This kind of thing puts people off of sharing their awesome pictures and stories with the rest of the fans, some of whom will never be so lucky as to even be in the same city as their fave actors/singers/celebrities, let alone attend a con they’ll be in and pay heaps of money for something very, very special.

For you creators/editors/artists out there who would like to prevent your stuff from getting reposted, my only advise is to watermark or sign your things. That’s not really going to physically stop the actual reposting from happening, but at least you’ll know that it’s yours, and if you wish to report the reposting, you have proof that it was yours at all.

That’s it for now, you guys. I hope this post, even though it’s been long, has been informative and helpful, and here’s to less reposts in the tags, and more respect in the fandom.

Hey guys! :)

Just wanted to let you know (well those of you who aren’t aware of it’s existence yet) there’s this new #askarsedit tumblr tag, I recommend you all track, whether you’re an ASkars blog or an ‘admirer’ and you want to be able to have an easy access to original and unique edits/gif/graphic etc. Also if you want to avoid dozens of repetitive stuff, porntastic manips, fake photos, reposted edits, gifs, etc., and let’s not forget photos pulled from weheartit, pinterest and other places THAT ARE NOT SOURCES, as well as rpg stuff and whatnot. We’re all fed up with that, so there’s been an initiative in the ASkars fandom about creating our own ‘’edit tag’’. That way it’d be much easier for everyone, not to mention much much more enjoyable to browse through the tag page and find creations of people who actually invest time in making their own stuff. With that in mind, we now have #askarsedit  tag!

So how does this work? Simple.

  • It’s a special tag for edit/gif/graphic makers to use for all their Alexander Skarsgård edits

  • Things to tag as  #askarsedit - gifs, graphics, edited caps, your fanart, basically anything visual

  • Things NOT to tag as #askarsedit - text posts, personal stuff, reposted edits, gifs, etc. roleplay stuff, audio posts (just a note: DO NOT REMOVE THE WATERMARK from someone else’s work and then post it as your own because that is just deliberately being a douchebag thief who wants to show off his/her MS Paint skills or whatever)

  • So if you make Alexander Skarsgård edits/gifs/graphics, then along with the main #alexander skarsgard or #alexander skarsgård tag, also tag your edits with  #askarsedit 
    Be sure to put  #askarsedit as one of your first 5 tags (so it would be shown in that tag)

That being said, using and tracking this tag should really make finding and reblogging original ASkars edits easier, without having to deal with reposted edits, and it’s possibly the best way to discover new talented edit/gif/graphic makers. ;)
