Adding fancy fonts to your B&W image really gives your pictures that extra boost! BeautyPlus has many cool fonts & text styles to choose from.

First In the app, I selected “Text” and “Styles. The Fancy Text I choose in this image is called “Gotcha”. It goes together so beautifully with the black & white image, giving it a elegant look. After I added my writing, I clicked “Text” which you can find beside “Fonts” and that was where I was able to change the color of my font aesthetic.

Tip 4. Create the Ripped Paper Effect or Use Brush to Highlight Colors

The Ripped paper effect gives Black and White images a unique and creative look. I 100% recommend this sticker if you’re going for a different creative look.

In this image, after applying B&W filter, I used the ”Collage” sticker package for the ripped paper look. You can find this sticker package in BeautyPlus’s Sticker Store. Select “Retro”, and there you will be able to add the whole sticker package your collections. When you have the package, find and select the ripped sticker similar to the one in the image above. Place it onto your photo and adjust the size of the ripped sticker to your liking. After that, import the original image as custom sticker, and start erasing the unwanted part with the eraser, and it is done!

Apart from using ripped paper sticker to highlight a specific section of your face, you can also use “Brush” together with the Black and White filter for an impressive result!

Why Black and White Aesthetic is Trendy

Black and White photography is trendy in many different types of photography, and it’s trendy for a very special reason. B&W photography is very popular in Boudoir photography, Wedding photography, Landscape photography and so on. The special reason as to why is because it makes photos more meaningful. It allows your audience to really pay attention to your image. Whether you’re also a  creator in nature images, funny images, or even sad images. It doesn’t matter because there’s no color to distract your audience in B&W. They are always  going to focus on what is  physically in your picture.

Black and white photography also tends to give off an emotion. An emotion that your audience possibly feels as if they can relate to. For example, many people tend to enjoy sad images, especially if they feel like they can relate to it at that moment in their life. It’s the black and white that really triggers that emotion. These are the reasons as to why the Black and White aesthetic is trendy. It’s also all about finding the best photo editor to give you the best Black and White image. And this is where BeautyPlus’s B&W filters will be the best decision for your photos!
