September is here, and fall is just around the corner. On social media we’ve already started seeing beautiful orange tone images with dry leaves, hot cocoa and cozy sweaters to let us know we’re collectively ready and in the mood for the season to begin!
I’ve selected some images from free image banks like Pexels and Unsplash to inspire our Autumn themed photography. You can use the images below if you want to, they’re all royalty free 🙂
I know, I know, I’ve been posting a lot of feminine, cute, delicate insta themes here lately, and there are so many othe styles I don’t try enought. That’s why today I’ve decided to get out of my comfort zone a little.
I wanted to try something more tumblr like, but with bright, intense colors, with proper contrast and personality. I was kinda tired of the same thing all the time…
So the plan was to come up with something different. Pictures more casual and “real life”, with edits that really stood out with a whole new tone. I know many of you are looking for that kind of stuff, correct? 🔥🔥🔥
So check it out:
Instagram Feed Theme Aesthetic: Let it burn
I picked all the Unsplash photos with that concept in my mind. I wanted the pictures, at least some of them, to look more like real life. Then I added some super cool ones that have more of a professional touch.
As you can see in the video below, I made it using Photoshop, like I always do:
And this preset is the closest I could get to the aesthetic using VSCO. It’s not exactly the same look, but it’s as good as it gets for now haha
Here’s the color palette…
And now the pict I’ve used, all from Unsplash. I’ve edited them alredy, if you want the original one you can find it on their website 🙂
Nobody can argue that trips are the best moments to take pictures, right?
Even those who never post on social media suddentely show up on our feeds even if just a little bit with a few shots of the journey. After all, it’s such a special occasion… ✈🧡💙🌎
We’ve all been there, hopefully we’ll continue been there many and many times though out our lives! BUT, sometimes we can’t really get the best inspiration for the perfect caption for those super important insta posts…
I’m back with another pack of cute stickers to download for free and use right now anywhere you want ✌ 🌼☮
This pack has a a 70’s theme. They’re perfect to use on your designs for social media or wherever you prefer.
Update: Now that I’ve created my account on giphy, I’ve started making gif stickers. So I adapted a few of the original static ones from this set into the new format:
As always, I’ll also make available in the download folder the open vector file, for those who want to use the images in high resolution. That is, you can print your huge sticker to stick on the wall, for example, or to decorate a party.
Just send the .eps file that is in the folder to your printer place, and inform them exactly which sticker you want to print, which size, etc.
Since Instagram started allowing us to create stories on our profile, a lot of people came running after cute images and icons to use as highlight covers to make their feeds even more cohesive and pretty, right? 💖✨
So I thought it’d be a nice idea to share a few icon sets, in different styles, so you can pick your favorite. Starting with these bright colored watercolor ones. 🎨
Chicas, this is the first collage set I post on the blog. So exciting! 🥂 Christmas is always inspiring to me, and I thought it’d be a great theme for this first collection…
The images are random, fun, holly jolly cheerful and of course very christmassy! Just like ME!! hahaha
I hope you’ll find a nice use for them, either making your own collage using all of the images, or just a few specific images for whatever project you’re working on.
If you’re learning graphic design right now, this could be a good way to practice your skills as well 🙂
I’ve made a Photoshop collage as an example using all the items, here’s a video of how I made it!
And this is the final collage, in 4 diferent color versions:
Fun, right?? It works as a phone wallpaper and has the perfect size for Instagram Stories of course 😜💖. Click the link below to download your free collage kit. You’ll have to check out to complete the download, but the kit really is free, don’t worry 🙂
Whether it’s making the photo more fun, or adjusting something that did not look right in a photo, we often need to change the color of an object in the image, right? It seems like something very difficult to do, but it really isn’t! ✨✨
Pick the most appropriate selection tool and mark the desired area. In most cases, I need to select an object that has organic shape, (like Kaia’s eyes) so I use the Polygonal Lasso Tool. But in the picture below, I will use the elliptical sign, since I wanna change the color of the tea that is in the round cup. (ps. Sorry the screenshots below are in portuguese. I think it’s possible to understand, though 🙂
Next, go to Image / Adjustments / Hue Saturation. By changing the hue of the selected object, you will see how it changes the color before your eyes. It’s super easy!
If you prefer a more subtle change, instead of Hue, you can go into Image / Adjustments / Color Balance. And one of the ones I like the most: Image / Adjustments / Replace color, which allows you to select (within the selection already made), a specific color to change. In this case you can control the intensity of the change better 😉
I hope this is useful! Let me know if you have any questions 🙂
