Introduction: Halloween Pumpkins

Halloween is an important time of the year. Many things happened on that day October the 31st. Kids dress up as ghosts and zombies, pumpkins are carved and parents encourage their kids to take candy from strangers.

Go back to the pumpkin part. Pumpkins are related to Halloween because, as mithril qouted on Yahoo answers:  Farmers made lanterns out of them to guide the souls of those who died in the last year to their final rest. They were also designed to ward off evil spirits that may be wandering in the night.

In this Instructable I will show you how to edit a picture of pumpkins using 2 Ipod/ Ipad apps. The apps are Camera+ and Fotor. The picture is below.

Step 1: The Apps

Picture of The Apps

These are the apps and what they look like. Fotor is $2-99 and Camera+ is $0-99. I rate Camera+ as a better app for me and I use it all the time, but Fotor has more variety. They are great apps altogether though.

Step 2: Fotor Color Splash

Select Color Splash in the Fotor menu and use the paint brush to paint the parts that you want to stay color, and erase the parts that will be black and white. I have shown three examples and the third is my favourite.

Step 3: Camera+ Scenes

Step 5: Camera+ Border and Captions

The border is Light Grit. Once you've selected the border press captions and type whatever message you want. In this example because instructables is so awesome I typed Instructables Pumpkins.

what inspired you to edit you photo like this? those are some really nice jack-o-lanterns btw, did you make them yourself?

My inspiration was when I visited America at Halloween last year my cousins carved awesome pumpkins. I live in Australia so we don't celebrate Halloween as much as the Americans do, and no I got the photo off the Internet
