Instant Photo-Editing: CYMERA

Sometimes, photographs are just not as pretty as we want them to be. Or you know, you just want to make some touch-ups to your already pretty picture so it will be prettier.(*^^*) Cymera is one of my favorite apps for that! When I have no time for Photoshop (and I usually don't) I just need to take out my phone/tablet and run this app and I can have a pretty picture in no time! The great thing is, this is available on both Android and iPhone (FOR FREE!) so everyone can enjoy it. ^^

On this blog entry, I will show you some of the cool features of Cymera. <3

Step 1:
Select a picture (duh!)
I took this picture today (with Cymera as well):


Step 2:
You will see a menu on top. Click EDIT > CROP.
I will crop this picture to 16:9.


Step 3:
Add FILTER! That is FILTER > FILTER
You can choose from many filters. For this picture, I chose RETRO.


You can see an additional filter called light.
We are not going to use this. :P

The effect of filter SWEET.

Step 4:
Again, I chose "RETRO" from the Filters.
The next step is to add a BOARDER.


AND YOU'RE DONE! Remember to SAVE your changes! Notice how these simple steps made our photograph softer and prettier? <3 But the features of Cymera doesn't end there! These are the steps I would personally do on my photographs, but there is so much more you can do. (*^^*)

On this section, I will show you the other features of the app and maybe we will be trying some. <3

BEAUTY.
Want a bigger set of eyes? No problem! Cymera can make that happen for you without surgery. Hehe. Just click on BEAUTY > BIG EYES.

Note though that this only works for portraits with the face straight. I couldn't do it with this picture so no demo for it! Sorry. :(

The other features you can see on this screenshot are "SMILE" (yes, if you are frowning on the pic, it will make you smile!!!), "SLIM" (you know what this is for! and "LIQUIFY."




I played with Liquify for a bit.
You can adjust the size of your brush and nudge the parts that you want to be bigger or smaller.
In this image, I made my nose smaller and my chin more sharp.
You can check the changes you made by clicking the A/B button on the upper right portion before "APPLYING" changes. Yes, you can check how much more pretty you became. HAHA.


The "BEAUTY" features you can see on this screenshot are "HAIR," "MAKE-UP," "BRIGHTNESS," "COVER SPOTS," and "MOSAIC."

Next we will play with DECORATE.

Sticker Menu~

Comic Mask menu~

Fancy frame menu~

This can be a pretty useful tool for quick edits. I really like this app although sometimes, it crashes. >_>

Here are some edits to the pic that I did. I mostly like the filters (obviously). You can apply two or more filters at one time to create interesting new filters. <3



So what do you think of Cymera? What photo-editing software for your mobile device do you use? Please share and tell me!

Well, that's it for now. See you on my next post!

Accessorize: Owls

Part of the random things I'm interested in, besides Kokeshi (traditional, wooden Japanese dolls) are owls! I dom't know exactly when I became interested in them, but you will see traces of them on old accounts like Tumblr. I found this pic there:

Owl accessory
Isn't this totally adorable?!

I think the necklace is broken already though... But I would really want to have it again. I still have the earrings (but I barely wear them because I get itchy) and at the very moment of writing this, I'm wearing an owl ring! Wanna see?

Owl accessory
Pretty cool, huh?

If I'm not mistaken this piece was given to me by a friend. Kinda cute huh? I should probably start buying more owlies soon.

I don't actually wear accessories a lot, but I feel like I should start doing so. I'm turning 23 by next month and it's so time to upgrade my daily tee/shorts fashion. >_<

How about you guys? What kind of fashion do you like? Do you wear accessories? Do you want to "upgrade" your fashion? Tell me! (*^^*)

Singapore! (Part 2)

Yes. For real. I know this is long overdue. But since I decided to move my blog, I think it's time for a celebration post. :P

I have previously posted about Day 1 in Singapore in my previous blog, so I will skip that part ok! If you want to read it, you can click here.Day 2 was pretty much Zoo day but my boyfriend and I were able to do a couple of things before we went there.Early morning, we went to China Town to taste some "shaved ice." The famous place for that is of course, Mei Heong Yuen Dessert in Temple Street. Please go and visit this place when you get the chance! I totally loved their shaved ice. I want one now.

Mei Heong Yuen Dessert
We had no trouble finding it. :P

Mei Heong Yuen Dessert
Total yummy-ness!!!

Mei Heong Yuen Dessert
I forgot what this one is called because the shaved ice was too good. Haha!

Before going to the zoo, we went to Serangoon North Avenue 1. This is the Singapore version of the Philippines' Cartimar. Basically, it is a place where animal goods are sold for a cheaper price! I have been wanting a Wild Sanko Hampot for a while and could not find it in the Philippines. I heard from some friends over a forum that they sell Hampot here. I got a limited edition lime colored Hampot plus tubes for waaaaay cheap! I got it for S$62! At first, they were offering it to me for around S$70 but I told them I saw on the internet, it is sold for S$62. Then, I rechecked the internet and apparently, this lime version (with the tubes is actually about S$82!!! I'm sorry to the kind salespeople in Serangoon North. I did not mean to rip you off. ; 3 ; I regret not taking photos of the place.

So next up, we went to the Zoo! Behold... Lots Some pics! (^__^)

At night, we went to Night Safari and rode the tram. We were both to tired to actually still go around the zoo. Too much walking. ; 3; Plus, we made a reservation with Jumbo Seafood in Clark Quay and had to be there by 10pm. Here are the best bits of that delicious dinner:

Jumbo Seafood
I have no idea what this is called. It was just recommended by the waitress, so I ordered it. This is so delicious! If you eat at Jumbo Seafood, be sure to have this!

Jumbo Seafood
Of course, they are famed for Chili Crab.

By the way, sorry I set my image sizes to just large, I don't want them to be so big and take up most of the space on my page. ; 3 ;

And this was DAY 2 of our Singapore trip! See you on my next post for Day 3 and 4. :P I should totally finish posting about this before my next trip!!! HAHAHA.

WHERE DO YOU THINK WILL I BE GOING ON MY NEXT TRIP?! Guess! I want to see if anyone can get it right (⌒▽⌒)☆.
