How It Was Done!
I did a Google search for “freedom,” and found this piece at Pinterest.
The next step was to open the image in Photoshop Express and apply a “Charm” filter. In addition, I added a beta element: light leaks, L3 (this is how I achieved the bleeding light over the bird). I then adjusted the image’s black-level (tuned to negative 48). I saved the image; and moved on to Canva.
I chose to keep the image in its original aspect ratio (408 x 750) through Canva’s create menu.
For the quotation itself, I used the “Bright Sunshine ” 24.5-point font, and changed the line spacing to 1.25. I added an additional body-text element for the citation; and used the “Lancelot” font — adjusting it to 12.3-points.
