Lyrics By Dr Hook
"But the thrill we've never known
Is the thrill that'll getcha
When you get your picture
On the cover of the Rolling Stone.Rolling Stone...
Wanna see my picture on the cover.
Wanna buy five copies for my Mother.
Wanna see my smiling face
On the cover of the Rolling Stone"
Recently mom posted a photo of me on the cover of Vogue People loved the photo and several have asked her how she did it. So I'm going to let her do the blog today and she will show you how to get YOUR photo on a magazine!
Turn Your Photos into Fake Magazine Covers
I love taking photos and I love taking photos of the dogs! But just how many dog pics can you have without them all looking alike?
Lately, I've started tweaking and editing some of my photos with fun apps on my iPhone. Yes, I said iPhone. I have a super duper fancy camera...but most of my photos are taken and edited on my iPhone. The picture quality is excellent and I always have my phone with me to take those candid shots when they crop up.
Which Photo App?
I use a fun photo app called PhotoLab to edit my photos and add some amazing effects. I can save my photos as a charcoal sketch, an oil painting, or even a cartoon. But right now, I'll show you how easy it is to make a FAKE MAGAZINE COVER.
This is the original photo I used for the magazine cover above. Try to use a close-up photo with the subject in the center.
1. Open the PhotoLab app
2. Select the Category You Want - In this case it is Magazine Covers.
2. Upload your photo to the app by clicking on a photo icon.
3. Select your fake magazine cover and click the green check mark.
4. That's it! Your cover is processing and in less than a minute your cover is available.
Now your cover is available to download to your iPhone gallery, or upload to social media!
What If You Don't Have An iPhone?
Don't worry, if you don't have an iPhone there is a photolab app for android
You can also create a cover online from your computer You can google to get hundreds of sites.
Here is a link to one called Magazine Yourself.
If you want to change titles. add dates or personalize text you can use Enjoypic.com You can select from titles like Vogue, TIME, More, Make Up and many others. Just choose a cover you like and upload the image that you’d like. After that, you may need to drag, resize, or crop the image to fit the magazine cover and typography.
The point of all of this is to have fun! Make funny pictures, send them to friends and family - or better yet, make them OF friends and family. It's easy! Feel free to post your cover in the comments section. I look forward to seeing what you create.
