Transparent Backgrounds With InPixio

Images with transparent backgrounds are essential when creating banners, adds and the like. I’ve just produced a video called Removing background with InPixio Photo Clip. I use images with transparent backgrounds a lot! Most of the pictures that I have created with The Creator have images with transparent backgrounds incorporated in them.

Why Transparent Backgrounds With InPixio

Why Transparent Backgrounds With InPixio

In the image above you can see the original photo that I started off with and the resulting image which has a transparent background. Having an image with a transparent background means that you can place it anywhere creating a brand new image. I’ve taken the original image and by placing into another image have created something entirely new. That’s one of the greatest advantages of transparent backgrounds with InPixio.

This has so many avenues in advertising as well as for personal photographs. They also come in extremely handy when creating videos. A lot of my YouTube videos have images with transparent backgrounds in them.

Images with transparent backgrounds are used widely in graphic design. Sometimes the background of an image isn’t quite right, and so the background is removed so the resulting image can be placed over a completely new background. Advertisers use this a lot when creating their ads. I know I’ve used it when creating some of the banners for my blogs or websites.

There are many amateur photographers who have taken photos where the subject matter has been spoiled by the background. Some have had the background removed so the subject can be placed over a new background that makes the brand new photo stand out.

Then there are others who like to do the same thing but for entirely different reasons, like putting a smile on their friends faces.

If you haven’t watched my removing backgrounds with InPixio Photo Clip, why not do so now. While you’re there, why not consider subscribing to my channel. I’m always looking for new subscribers.

Top Photo Editor

I admit I’m not the best photographer out there. I’ve always known that a top photo editor would help me to improve my photographic images but those top photo editors were always out of my reach. Not only that, they were way too hard to use, like Adobe Photoshop for instance.

Effortless Top Photo Editor

What I needed was an affordable, effortless top photo editor. I didn’t think I would ever come across one until it miraculously happened. I was fortunate enough to be exposed to Skylum’s Luminar 3.

Top Photo Editor Luminar 3

Luminar 3 excited me so much that I had to upload a video showing people just how easy to use Luminar 3 is. The video is called, Luminar 3 Review Is Skylum’s Luminar Worth It? You’ll notice in the video that there were times when I seemed to be stumbling around, and that was because Luminar 3 was so new to me. And yet, because it was so easy to use, I managed to get the whole thing to work.

Luminar 3 Libraries

One of the many features of Luminar 3 that makes it one of the top photo editors is the Luminar 3 Libraries, something most top photo editors don’t have. Luminar 3 Libraries makes it so easy to organise your photos. I believe that Luminar 3 is better than most other photo editors. It’s star ratings, I show you that feature in my Luminar 3 tutorial, is perfect for organising the Luminar 3 libraries even further. With the star ratings, you can view your images depending on what star rating you’ve given them.

Luminar 3’s best feature would have to be the one-touch editing offered by Luminar Looks. You simply select the one you would like to use, whether it be portraits, landscapes, dramatic or whatever. You would then choose the one that makes your image pop the most. Even easier is the ‘Quick and Awesome’ one-click photo editing mode. Once again, my Luminar 3 Final Review, final because I doubt I will need to do another one, shows just how effortlessly ‘Quick and Awesome’ editing is.

I’m now so confident using Luminar 3 that I now have another Gig on Fiverr enhancing landscape photos.

Honestly, you can’t go wrong with Skylum’s Luminar 3. When you go to YouTube to watch my video you should consider subscribing to my channel. I’m always looking for new subscribers.

Best Free WordPress Theme

best free wordpress theme

Hey guys, I suppose you’ve noticed that I now have a new theme. You may have been wondering why? Well, before I get to why I think OceanWP is the best free WordPress theme you need to know why I’ve had to look for a new WordPress theme. Check out the banner above. Talk about bells and whistles. Not only is it clickable, it also great for SEO as it has it’s own alt tags. Hover over it with your mouse…Cool huh?

Also, did you notice my header? Again, it has its own alt tags for SEO. More importantly its embedded with an affiliate link. Using OceanWP, you can have a different header for every post or page if that was what you wanted. I wouldn’t go that far, but it would be perfect when promoting your products or affiliate links.

It all started when I had to upgrade the PHP from 5. something to 7.1. Unfortunately, my old theme didn’t like the upgrade. Nor did several of my plugins. I could live without the plugins but not without a properly functioning WordPress theme.

Why Best Free WordPress Theme?

So, why use the best free WordPress theme instead of another professional WordPress theme? It’s because the free OceanWP theme can be upgraded to a professional WordPress theme with a whole sleuth of extra features. It’s how I chose my last professional WordPress theme.

What Should A Good WordPress Theme Have

  • For me, a good WordPress theme needs to work straight out of the box.
  • It has to be flexible, so I can easily configure it to look and act the way I want it to. This is really important to me as I have so many blogs and I want them all to have their individual look.
  • Good SEO attributes. Very important as without good SEO a blogger will be floundering in dead water.
  • Fast load times. We all know how important a site’s speed is to Google.
  • Responsive on all devices including mobiles and tablets. Again, another critical Google requirement.
  • Bells and whistles. Ok, that’s just me, I’ve always loved bells and whistles.

So far, OceanWP fulfils all these requirements. And it’s the free version. I can only imagine what the professional version comes with. And, I will be getting the pro version. Once I do I’ll be writing another post.

Check out the banner above which you can do with the free version of this fantastic theme. The border around it is one of several borders I could choose from. I’m still pretty new at all this but I have to say, I am really impressed with this free WordPress theme.

Notice below the post how it links to three other of my posts? That’s also great for SEO! Stay tuned for a video on how easy and remarkable the OceanWP theme is.
