What’s that you say, wall? You’re tired of the same old frames?
Lucky for you, we’ll be switching things up this month (and beyond!) with an instant photo gallery.
The DIY photo ledge takes a simple strip of plastic molding and turns it into an easy-photo-switching, exquisite photo wall sprucer-upper.
In other words, it’s a simple photo holder that makes your wall look awesome.
It looks especially sharp with Polaroids and Instax photos, but you can use it to display any collection of snaps! Your photo ledge will transform your walls from eh, blah … to aaaahhhh in under an hour.
Thanks to our pal Tom Watson who showed us how to make this photo ledge!
Film lovers unite!
This tutorial will give you the power to recreate a tiny 35mm film canister into a larger-than-life reminder of the good ol’ days.
Use it as a prop for photos, store unused rolls of film and other camera related goodies, or just make yourself feel really small!
This film canister will hold more than you ever thought could fit onto a 24-exposure roll.
We’ve seen record temperatures this summer. Sometimes, it’s just too hot to be outside!
But that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy scenic views from the comfort of your living room (and air conditioner).
Learn how to turn your photos into glowing photo spheres!
You’ve seen those plain paper lanterns at the store, and now you can convert them to show off your own bright and colorful photographs.
And when the temperature drops, you can take your photo spheres out on the porch. Your neighbors will appreciate the view.
They say opposites attract.
Big, boring fridge, meet cute magnetic photos. We think you’ll get along just fine!

You can make a mosaic or a lovely grid of your favorite Instagram photos.
Either way, you’ll make your other appliances envious and turn that big blank canvas of a fridge into a stunning gallery.
p.s. If you’re in NYC or San Francisco, Skillshare’s hosting a load of awesome looking photo classes taught by some truly great photographers! (Including one by our very own photographer, Kim Thomas!)
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!
Follow this guide to learn how to turn your photos into wearable photo fabric — that’s right fabric.

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.)
