Tint Your Photos with Beets


Forgot your precious color gels? Did you say goodbye to the colorsplash flash at the wrong time, or do you simply want to play with your photos and paper? This is a great trick that makes it easy to give a different feel to your photos!

I learned this trick a long time ago. And now that we are approaching the summer, the bikini season is knocking at my door, salads are present everyday at my desk, and the smell of beets brought back this trick to my memory.

What you need:

  • A container
  • A pot of beet
  • A beautiful photo

Steps to follow:

Step 1: Pour the liquid from the beets in the container. In this case I used beet boat, but with natural beet your photo will be more intense.

Step 2: Dip the photo in the liquid.

Step 3: Let it enjoy the beet bath for a few hours.

Step 4: Take it to the bathroom, give the photo a shower with clean water and let it dry.

Step 5: Enjoy the masterpiece!

The results with color photos are also very nice:
