Did you know your nose has secret teleporting powers?
Think about your last trip to the beach: the salty scent of surf, your coconut-scented sunscreen, and the smokey smell of bonfires.
Just thinking of the smells makes you feel like you’re really there.
Now just imagine what adding scent to your photos will do for all those memories you caught on camera!
You can add smell to your photos at home in three DIY ways, and we’ll show you just how below.
Ever had the urge to wrap your body in photographs? Yes? Well, today, all of your dreams can come true!

You’ll be draped in photos in no time.
It’s beautiful and sparkly. It’s the night sky!

Immortalize the ever-changing cosmos in glorious photos with a few handy rules on tripod-use and exposure.
Whether you’re shooting the auroras or want to capture star trails, long exposures will get you there. Click on for our best tips!
It’s the perfect time of year to take a break from editing at your computer. Take a stroll outside and breathe in the budding aroma of flowers.
Unbeknown to most folks, those pretty flowers harness the power to produce a stellar photograph! An anthotype to be exact — a photo print made with plant matter.
Spinach, daisies, wine, strawberries, onions, and other plants are all light sensitive. If you leave them out in the sun long enough, you’ll have your very own plant prints, just like that.
Not only do plants feed us and give us shelter, but they make photos for us, too! Is there anything these guys can’t do?
It’s a heartbreaking tale: film may one day be hard to find.
With companies cutting down on the kinds of film they make, filmophiles are working to amass a stash of their favorites.
The good news is film keeps better than a fruitcake from 2005!
With a few simple steps, the film you bought in 2012 will be usable for years to come.
You have a leftover box of photo paper from Photo 101, and it’s been taunting you from your shelf.
You could swear you once heard it wimper into the cold, dark night, “Make photos with me!” But, alas, you have no dark room or chemicals with which to make prints!
Good news: you can still make photos with it.
You don’t even need chemicals or an enlarger.
It’s the same concept as sun printing with a surprise appearance by analog’s bizzaro world counterpart: digital!
(All thanks to our pal Mike Dunckley for sharing his photos and showing us how.)
What is it that makes vintage photos so inherently beautiful? It may very well be that they’ve been loved for so many years.
And while we’d like to wait around to watch our photos get lovelier and lovelier by the year, it’d take forevs. That’s why we dug our pal Helen Stead‘s idea so much!
She prints photos on mulberry paper, a translucent paper made from the bark of mulberry trees.
It’s the paper’s fabric-like texture that turns your normally crisp digital photos into stunningly soft, muted visions of yesteryear.
Thanks, mulberry paper, for saving us the 50 year waiting period.
Scratch-off cards sure know how to take you on an emotional roller coaster. First you’re filled with gleeful anticipation and then, womp-womp. It’s a dud!

She taught us how to turn Polaroids (or any photo) into the best scratch-off card ever.
You can make your own easy scratch-offs using dish soap and acrylic paint. It’s really that easy.

Before printers spewed out photos on paper, photos were printed on glass!
Sure, that sounds like the kind of thing your Uncle Buck would make up, but we’re telling you, it’s totally true.
Just to prove it, here’s a tutorial on how to put your own photos on glass with etching!
It’s a different technique than 19th century photographers used and is as easy as old school iron-on transfers.
The results? They’ll put you on par with the most bad ass of our photo fore-fathers.
