Picture Pumpkins: Give Your Halloween Memories a Gourdy Glow
Extra photos for bloggers: 123

We’ve all been there.

You’ve braved the pumpkin’s innards and spent hours etching its Titian-hued flesh.

Then, the neighbor’s cat dashes by the window (or was that a ghost?) and suddenly you’ve lopped the smirk right off of Jack O. Lantern’s face.

It’s time to defy the exacting standards of our annual October undertaking and replace them with a more photo-realistic (because we’re using a real picture!) and totally classy (because we’re framing it!) pumpkin.

It’s a gourd revolution!

Make Ol’ Timey Roundographs
On Your Phone

The Kodak No. 1 was the first camera available to non-pros. It let anyone document and share their day to day life.

It was the o.g. Instagram.

Uniquely, photos taken with the Kodak No. 1 were printed in charming 2.5″ sepia circles.

The National Media Museum just released a set of Kodak No. 1 photos and it turns out day-to-day life in the 1890′s was pretty cool. Boat rides, beach trips, and hats galore!

They inspired us to give our photos that Kodak No. 1 look. So, we cooked up this simple recipe:

  1. Crop your photo into a circle. We used PicFrame.
  2. Run it through a black and white Instagram filter but don’t post it. Put your phone in airplane mode before you hit “share” and when the upload fails, just X it out. (It’ll save the filtered photo to your phone.)
  3. Run the photo you just saved though Instagram one more time. This time, use a filter with a brownish tint for that ol’ timey feel. (We like Hefe and Sutro best).
  4. Turn off airplane mode and share away! (Whatever hashtag the first Kodak users used has been lost to history. But we’re using #Roundograph.)

It’s that easy! Give your photos that great 1888 look using just a couple of apps… Or invest in headwear (those folks seriously loved their hats).
