FotoJet Part 3 Simply living day by day (English)

Hello, my dear followers and friends,

this is the last post about the photo editing service FotoJet.

Step 1: You either upload a picture to edit or choose one of the samples :).

Step 2: At first I crop the picture for my purposes.


 Step 3: I use the mirror function (over the apply button) so the face views to the other side.

Step 4: Ok, this is done.Then I straighten it.

 Step 5: I change the setting for the exposure, brightness, contrast, highlights and shadows.
 Step 6: I also modify saturation, temperature and tint.
Step 7: I sharpen and clarify the image.

Step 8: From there on I use the function: dehaze.

Step 9: And I use Vignette.

Step 10: To make the impression further that it is an old, oil painting, I intensify the noise.

Step 11: The effects make the photograph even more interesting.

I try Portrait

And... Food which makes the piece more fabulous.

 Step 12: Directly after that follows the font. An ornate pinkish and blue engraving is perfect.

The Death Cure (The Maze Runner #3) by(Goodreads Author) Hello, my friends and followers,  now the time is coming for the third installment in the Maze Runner Series :). Another great and marvellous YA dystopian Science Fiction novel by James Dashner. The Plot: The protagonist Thomas is held in solitary confinement because he dared not to be controlled by WICKED.

The Scorch Trials (The Maze Runner #2) von(Goodreads Author)
Hallo, meine lieben Freunde und Follower,
Endlich habe ich ein wenig Zeit über das zweite Buch und den Jugendroman / Dystopie / Science-Fiction Roman von James Dashner zu schreiben.

 Handlung: Natürlich geht es wieder um die Gladers, Thomas und seine Freunde und nicht zu vergessen Teresa. Nachdem sie am Ende des ersten Teils gerettet worden, beginnt es wie Thomas und die anderen im Wohnheim schlafen.

Nachdem die Gladers dem verrückten Experiment entkommen konnten, scheint es, als ob alles wieder ruhig und friedlich ist.

Jedoch, als es tags wird, wacht Thomas auf und weiß, das etwas fehlt…jemand. Teresa, die einzige weibliche Glader verschwand über Nacht. Und das ist nicht das Schlimmste. Cranks, normale Menschen, di…
