Photofiddle - Review and Giveaway

I have taken a myriad of pictures of my two year son, but so far I haven't done much with them. I don't have any scrapbooks made for him (yet), and the only pictures we have of him on the wall of our home are of him when he was a little baby. There was an empty spot in the bedroom for a picture, and so I decided to rectify the situation and place a picture of him in his toddler glory.

A while ago, we had an adorable photo of him enlarged but it came out too dark and we never did anything with it. When I found out about Photofiddle, I knew we had another chance to get that photo of him up on the wall. Photofiddle is an online service that instantly transforms any photo into artwork within minutes! You can upload your desired photo, and it will be "fiddled" in different art styles that you can choose from. You can also request custom designs. For this review, I simply emailed Photofiddle my picture and they sent me back previews of 25 different styles., such as oil, watercolor, pop art, color sketch and air brush. This is the original photo that I sent:


This is a picture of our little sweetie playing outside at Comic-Con last year. We go there every year, so this photo means a lot to us. Plus, he just looks so darn cute! We requested the Soft Pastel art style, which was the perfect choice to lighten the picture up. I received it shortly after in the form of a beautiful stretched canvas. Here is the result:



It came packaged with a pair of white gloves to protect it from grubby hands. So thoughtful! It now hangs in our bedroom, where I can look at his sweet face each night before I go to sleep. For anyone still wondering what to get that special someone for Father's Day, this would be the perfect gift. For more information, visit Photofiddle.
