Light up your feed with this fun new trick and give your photos a glowing neon edge. Outline edits have been a fave editing addiction for a while now (we’re still not over dotted outlines), but neon outlines over B&W pics are way more exciting, contrasting grey tones with electric lines of neon color.
Have a look at the tips below and make this trick your own.
More Than B&W
Go further than just turning off the color. PicsArt lets you choose from a handful of awesome B&W photo effects, so try on a few and play with their customization features until you feel like you nailed it.
Draw it Flashy
Trace the natural lines in your photo with PicsArt’s Drawing Tool, but make sure you choose the brightest and flashiest colors so that they really pop against all of that grey. Don’t sweat precision — a cartoonish illustration makes this way more fun and personal.
This is about lines, but no one is stopping you from bucking the rules with some polka dots. Use the Shape Tool to make perfect circles and give your shot some stylish spots.
Flood Your Background
Anything you fill outside of your outline will be separated by a hard border, so you can add any backdrop without worrying about that tricky edge where your portrait meets the background! Fill it with a brush, drop in one of PicsArt’s cool backgrounds, and tie the whole thing together with a Mask.
Neon outlines make for amazing posters and magazine covers because they have that minimalist designer look. A sleek frame is all it takes to finish everything off, so try Basic Editorial or Neon Frames to add a bit of glam and polish to your edits.
