My next collaboration is with the ever talented Tom @tomlovesyou. He is full of great editing tips & tricks! His helpful insight during the entire process was both inspiring and easy to understand. Not only does he have some killer skills with a camera, but is also an excellent teacher!??. His style is so whimsical and nostalgic, I just love his gallery and I know that you will too! I highly recommend taking a moment to go visit & say Hi ??. Here's our process! I started with ?VSCO? to apply the (02) black & white filter to both originals. I then used ?Photo Punch? to tediously cut the dragon out of a photo I took at the Museum of Discovery a few years ago. Next, using ?Photoshop Touch?, I combined his mountain photo with the sleeping dragon. After multiple attempts at trimming & placing him in just the right spot, I finally decided on this size to make it look a bit more realistic ?. Next, we decided to add a colorful layer of Mextures and Lumiforms to give it that dreamy & magical touch ?. Finally, Tom added a little shadowing to the dragon using ?Snapseed?& the perfect moon using ?Lens Flare?. Thanks a bunch Tom for making the process easy to grasp and for taking the time to walk me through trying something new! So glad to call you my new friend & I hope to collab again for sure!! I truly enjoyed it ?✌ AMPt_community Unitedbyedit

"I find it looks the same, but everything has changed. I find remembering gets harder every day. Sometimes, I still believe who I pretend to be. Sometimes, the little thing's exactly how it seems. I see the color of your eyes has turned to gray. I feel the wind is growing colder every day. Sometimes, I open up the walls and disappear. Sometimes, the crashing of the waves is all I hear... I know that everything we did will come around. I take the thought of you and burn it to the ground. Sometimes, I'm waiting for this ice age to arrive. Sometimes, I hate the me that's keeping me alive." How to Destroy Angels- Ice Age

Together We Can Make a Difference♡ @KevinKuster writes: I need your help! As many of you know I am working with the non-profit @watts_of_love. We distributed 1000 solar LED lights to Ilin Island last February to the poorest of the poor and the effects were life changing. Ilin Island has never had any electricity, running water or medical assistance. The 35,000 islanders have been all but forgotten and struggle to survive every day. We just received word that much of the Ilin island and its neighboring islands have been crushed by typhoon hayian and yolanda. Although we don’t have all details yet, we do know that almost every bamboo hut on Ilin has been completely destroyed! Thousands of families are completely without shelter and most are trying to take refuge in a local church. It is our goal to provide 10,000 solar LED lights to devastated families in three locations (Ilin, Seminara and Ambulong Islands – Occidental Mindoro, Philippines) . These lights provide safety, the ability charge to cell phones and radios for emergency communication, and most importantly to continue rebuilding their homes and community after the sun goes down. Please consider donating $40 to fund a disaster relief solar light and power kit today. This is a huge goal, but I believe our jj community can help initiate the BIGGEST charity giving program on @instagram ever! Click on the link in [my] bio above to donate now or go to Please consider reposting this image and all of info on ANY of your social media channels to help Watts of Love spread the word. Thank you.

♡Go Pink for October♡ National Breast Cancer Awareness Month is a chance to raise awareness about the importance of screening and the early detection of breast cancer. About 1 in 8 women born today in the United States will get breast cancer at some point during her life. After skin cancer, breast cancer is the most common kind of cancer in women. The good news? Many women can survive breast cancer if it’s found and treated early. A mammogram – the screening test for breast cancer – can help find breast cancer early. Make a difference! Spread the word about mammograms and encourage communities, organizations, families, and individuals to get involved. You can find more info at the source link here:

I am so excited to start my journey to a tobacco free lifestyle. These are a form of "e-cigs" a vaporizer of sorts, but refillable. It allows you to get the nicotine without the added 4000+ chemicals found in cigarettes. Not only that, but they also taste a lot better! Because it is water vapor, there's also no smell. You can taper your nicotine down to zero and still enjoy the tons of available flavors. All of the ingredients are FDA approved safe for consumption as well. No more nasty cigarettes for me!!

Fella gettin' in some Facetime with his favorite matey. Arrrggg! ;) Here's a silly edit for AE_Pixlr that I really enjoyed doing. Thought I would play around with the new stickers a little bit. I have to say that I was a little bit disappointed to find that a lot of the original stickers are no longer there. Why take them away Pixlr? Anyhow, this was created using ... Dang it. I totally used Photoshop to stick the two together. See, we really DO need layering ability! Then Pixlr Express would be my one stop shop ;) If you're still curious, added stickers, Alex & Tom filters on big photo and a flip plus. Tom on the small one.

For this photo, I took one of my older photos of the New Bridge in Memphis and made it 1:1 with a black background in InstaSquareMaker then added the fireworks. I edited them all slightly with Pixlr Express, cut them out using Photo Punch app then layered them & applied Autofix x1 with Photoshop Touch. I have another 16x9 version but I like this one more because there was more room for sparkles ;) Sky_collection 25 Days Of Summer Skyporn DroidEdit
This is my 2nd entry for @droidedit's AE_Pixlr challenge. The idea is to use only Pixlr Express or Pixlr-o-Matic to edit your photo then include the details of your process. I like how this challenge pushes you to stretch Pixlr to the max because, as you may know, it's my favorite go-to app for edits. I mainly stick to the basics with this app so this was a good exercise for me. Go check out their gallery to learn more and give ot a try! (P.s. if you remember me ranting about the upside down issue during saving, I figured out that if it does this, simply save as medium size instead of large and it fixes the issue. I've always saved large and never had a problem so not sure why this was a new issue for me o_O) Anyhow, here's my process. Photo taken on SGS3 and edited with Pixlr Express: Tom filter 100% Brightness +15% Contrast +20% Border-Blacknin 100% Overlay-Ascella 100% History Brush to separate the Dino from the stars above. Added 3 stickers for effect Tom filter 100% to even it all out.

Next I blended a layer of birds from the Effextures Birds pack in Photoshop Touch and set to "Difference" 90%. Then ran it through Pixlr Express to switch it to B&W using the "Tom" filter and bump up the contrast a little. Lastly, I added the Space overlay "Ascella" at 100%. EyeEm Capa Filter added.
