my-own-edits

anonymous asked:

Hello there, I'm wanting to start making my own edits, but I don't exactly know how to start? Do you think you could offer me some help? I'm sorry that I'm doing this anonymously I'm just a bit shy.

it’s totally fine! i’d recommend you sending me these off anon so i can answer you when i’m on mobile ( i prefer formatting my public responses and its a hassle on mobile ) but honestly i dont have big tips?? i started off making collages as a gift for someone and if you want to look at my ugly edits they’re at tagged/mine :’) 

you can start by looking for photos! if you want to make harry potter edits, dig around pinterest / tumblr / weheartit to find photos you’d use for a specific topic / character, and then add fonts / elements to them as you like with your photo editor! ( i started with pixlr, but i now use photoshop )

you can look at others’ edits as reference, but if you do that i’d appreciate ( personally ) you sending me an ask before posting the edit! you can also follow tutorials and such, which i can try to find if you need them. 

start by picking a character and making some character posters? @expelumos makes the best ones and you could also try making moodboards!  if you’re in the hp fandom i’d start with edits for the main characters and maybe edits for the houses too. sorry if this got long, hmu if you need anything else! ( i’m going off laptop soon tho so i might be slow with anon asks )

“Your mother’s coming …” he said quietly. “She wants to see you … it will be all right.. . hold on… .” And she came… first her head, then her body… a young woman with long hair,the smoky, shadowy form of Lily Potter blossomed from the end of Voldemort’s wand, fell to the ground, and straightened like her husband.
