Coffee hacks: How to add latte art and video effects to your cafe photos

It’s International coffee day so what better way to celebrate than with some creative tips for adding beautiful latte art and steamy video effects to your photos. You’ll never have to worry about letting your coffee get cold before you get the perfect shot ever again.

  1. Add an animation 

Use animated overlays to add some stirred coffee and steamy animation effects to bring your photo to life. Apps like Werble make this easy and has superior adjustment settings for overlaying the effect seamlessly. For a couple dollars you can buy a coffee overlay pack that will get you a bunch of different coffee effects to experiment with. 

2. Photoshop Mix

You can blend a latte art image over the top of your photo with Photoshop Mix. First you’ll need to find a suitable stock photo or latte art image of your own then add it as an extra layer over your photo. Use the cut out tool to select just the top of the coffee then smooth the edges and adjust the blend to apply it onto your image.

3.Add a sticker or create your own

With PicsArt app it is simple to overlay the perfect latte art on top of your image, just search for coffee or latte stickers and select the one you like. You can adjust the angle and colour of the sticker to perfectly align with your image. Like in Photoshop Mix you can even cut out your own coffee from another image to use instead of the ones provided, although it’s difficult to get a really smooth edge with this method.
