Apparently, today is National Selfie Day. We didn't realise selfies had a day of celebration and aren't sure they warrant one. Then again, the same thing could be said about dog biscuits, broccoli, curling and talking like a pirate.

With this simple photo editor you can convert your photo into two colours of your choice, or presets like Spotify, Fire Engine, or Gryffindor.
