I’m such a farking narcissist I couldn’t resist joining in The Gallery with this theme.
But lest you think I do ACTUALLY love myself , I really do not. I just wanted to show off the new Snapseed photo editing app I have on my phone. It is great and awesome. Lots of retro/grubby/dramatic filters and frames, and nice blurring tools. So. You can totally mess with your face. Which is fun.
I took a shot of myself and had a play. This is what happened:
I like to think I am GLOWING with some sort of supernatural evanescence. Spooky me.
I also like that my features have been almost obliterated by the filter. You can’t see what my mouth is doing. Am I smiling? Am I poking out my tongue? Am I mouthing something obscene? (probably)

I don’t know about you, but I’m fecking freezing.
Here’s Venice, in February, looking cold:
Now imagine you are in THE COLDEST MOST FREEZING VENICE EVER. Would look like this:
I’m pretty sure I just saw a polar bear. A FECKING POLAR BEAR. In Venice.
Well, of course I didn’t. This was all done by the magic and wonder of photo editing site Picnik. Which should have a health warning, it’s so addictive. It instantly makes all your photos look amazing. Or, really cold.
If you enjoy perving over people’s edited photos, hop to Five Go Blogging and check out the other slappers.
This here *points* is an anti-C***tmas Snap Slappers. So go jingle yo’bells somewhere else, Santa Fecking Claus.
Say hello to sunny, hot and sultry Rome…
See? That be me: slimmer, browner, faintly more Italian, sunning myself by the Trevi Fountain (eyeing up a skanky pigeon just out of shot). Now, let’s do some Picnik sexy time, baby…
Feeling hot? Skip over to Five Go Blogging and lick some other Snap Slappers ice lollies.
Ciao! It’s sexy-time for photos again. Yes, this is Snap Slappers all up in your face!
Here be a pretty (albeit stone) lady, who resides in the V&A:
Now, by the MAGIC OF PICNK, I will sex her up BIG TIME:
This is how I do my sexy-time: I cropped a bit. I added some colour boost. I opened the exposure and then sharpened it up, before adding a focal zoom effect and a black vignette. It all sounds very technical but I am just WOOING, basically. She looks FECKING GORGEOUS, innit.
Do you want to be a Snap Slapper? Edit your own photo and then link up at Missus Five Go Blogging. She loves a good slapper, she does.
Yes, I am still an addict. You may have noticed the photos on this blog looking a bit more sexed up than usual. That is because I am a Picnik uber-fan, innit. And Five Go Blogging FEEDS this addiction by setting up pesky memes! HOW CAN I RESIST?
I literally can’t.
This week I am pimping Eastnor Castle in Herefordshire:
Now for some sexy-time messing with la belle Picnik:
I cropped it a bit, added a Lomo-ish effect, boosted the exposure and sharpened the focus. Et voila!
And I have something else to confess.
I love a rounded corner, me. I LOVE THEM. They please me ENORMOUSLY.
If you also love a rounded corner and a cheeky little sepia tint, have a go on picnik.com, and go to Five Go Blogging to see what everyone else is up to during their sexy-time photo editing.
Yes I am.
And Five Go Blogging didn’t have to bully me into it or anything. I quite simply LOVE playing around with the photo editing site Picnik and if you haven’t already, you BLOODY SHOULD. It’s lushballs.
The idea is simple. Find a ‘boring’ photo in your collection. Upload it to Picnik. SEX IT UP BIG TIME. Post it into your blog. Link to Snap Slappers. Check out everyone else’s efforts.
Possibly the IDEAL way to spend a Tuesday morn.
I have chosen this original:
I think you’ll agree, this is ALREADY a fabby photo. Oh yes, I do good photos.
But now LOOK as I SEX IT UP BIG TIME:
I basically wazzed up the colour and increased the exposure a bit before sharpening the image. Yah.
Do you want a go? Visit picnik.com and have a play – it’s FREE. Which makes it lusher.
Then slide on over to Five Go Blogging and join up. There’s no shame in Snap Slapping.
Sauce! I do like a good saucy meme. The minxy sauce-pot Five Go Blogging has come up with this meme Snap Slappers after we all had so much fun last week with the AMAZING photo editing site Picnik. It’s a simple concept: find a photo and sauce it up. Post the before and after shots, then link on up. And enjoy the sauce. Sauce!
Here’s my before:
