You’ve likely seen many a regular photo frame hanging in your house, but you haven’t witnessed Atay’s (@dagmus5) photo frame edits. In essence, he uses various shapes to create a virtual photo frame for his photos, making for a unique visual experience. “In my life, I always wanted to be different and when I do something, I show it differently,” he told us. “Sometimes I get ideas from music or from what I am feeling that day. Atay even draws inspiration from quotes. “I read a quote and try to create something to explain it, in one image.” So awesome. Atay enjoys using the Add Photo Tool. “I can make so many things with it. I can add multiple photos, cut, paste, etc.” He recommends drawing or editing with the photo zoomed in so that you can see every pixel and encourages artists to take their time. “Being slow and…

Step inside PicsArt user Victor’s (@victorsvistunov) profile — and equally beautiful imagination — and your mind will be blown. His super cool tree house edit isn’t like any standard tree house you’ve ever seen. With layers upon layers, including a gushing waterfall and serene background, it looks more like a scene from a Tim Burton movie. via PicsArt Victor utilizes the Clone Tool with almost all of his edits. “With the Clone Tool, your work becomes perfect.” Since his edits can get complicated at times, Victor recommends gathering as many photos on your phone as possible. “With all those files, you can come up with an idea easily,” he says. “Another tip is to look for beautiful backgrounds, which in my opinion, is the first and hardest step.” To get your profile recognized, Victor encourages you to create your own unique style of editing. He draws inspiration from many other…

If you want to transport yourself to a surreal scene far away, you don’t have to hop on a plane. All you have to do is enter Kameliya’s (@limitlessmindgames) profile. It’s filled with magical edits dreamed up from the depths of her imagination. “Nature is another great source of inspiration. When I feel blocked, I just go out and shoot photos,” Kameliya spills about her creative process. “I think that every photo has a hidden story, so I start with editing without a certain idea, and let the picture talk to me and lead me.” She also gets inspired by other talented PicsArt artists she admires like @veroklo, @maddalena30, @adinaha, @urbexerap, @macmmaya, @venusthecat, @niel86, @freax1 and @evenvita. Her main tip for creating awesome pictures like hers is: “Experiment and have fun!” Kameliya uses Draw most frequently and advises to “Always try to combine pictures with similar light and colors.” Another useful tip: “Make the…

And she’s here to serve by sharing her secret tips and tricks. via PicsArt First things first: “A tripod is really useful when you do not have someone to help you take your photos,” Chee advises. “You don’t even need a professional camera if you have an iPhone or smartphone with a good camera.” When it comes to editing your photos, Chee recommends mimicking your favorite YouTubers or Instagrammers to see how they edit theirs. “There are many tutorials, too so if you ever need inspiration, that is a good place to start.” Noted.

One of our favorite things about our PicsArt users is being able to get a peek into their wildly creative minds — and with Toàn (@toanhuynh2610), it’s always a super fun experience when we delve into his profile. With his awesome map double exposure photos, you get to discover a world (pun intended!) of unique edits to mimic. “As you can see, I always edit photos with a solid color background,” he spilled about his process. For inspiration, Toàn often uses the Discover tab on the PicsArt app and hashtags on Instagram. “My creativity also plays an important role during editing,” he added. Toàn, a self-taught PicsArt master for the past four years, calls the app his best friend and we couldn’t be more flattered! His favorite feature is the Add Photo Tool: “All my awesome photos use this feature. The reason why I love it so much is that…

If any PicsArt profile warrants a soundtrack — more specifically, one of our favorite feel-good jams: Rihanna’s “Shine bright like a diamond” — it’s Abigail (@violetemily). Just peek at her fun edits and you’ll be totally blinded by her shiny photo collages using super fabulous diamond stickers. “I like diamond edits because they give a very glam touch,” Abigail told us about her work. And we 100% agree! She draws inspiration from posts she discovers from other talented artists, one of them Sara Shakeel, a former dentist who creates equally glitzy diamond-studded edits on Instagram. The diamonds she works with for her edits are are far from authentic, but that doesn’t matter! “I like the surreal or crazy effect,” she says. And now, thanks to this awesome photo editing tutorial, you too can glitterize your photos, including shoes, sunglasses, dresses — whatever your imagination dreams up. When it comes to…
