My very first Good to WOW is coming to a close. Clearly I need to go back and read up on the first 10 weeks because I had no idea what was meant by a few things. Good thing I have a friend who has been doing it for a while. I only called her three times with questions.
One of the recommendations for this week’s GTW was to use a program called Pixel Bender. I heard that it doesn’t work for my version of PSE though so rather than spend time testing that theory (didn’t have much time today) I played around with filters available on my PSE.
Here’s the original:
Here’s the clean edit:
Here’s the “artistic” edit with a watercolor filter:
For this particular picture most of the artistic filters didn’t seem to do that much. Lots of flat background, lots of little flecks in the petals, not much to go with for a poor little filter. Still, I like the watercolor a lot. The picture went from bright to moody. I like both.
And now that writing this post has been interrupted by a call from Rob who is working out of town and many, many requests from Zion to look up funny cat videos on Youtube (a favorite activity of hers) I have no more time left for Good To WOW. Gotta go. But you can go and check out what other people posted:
But wait, there’s more! I went back and played with it a little more tonight (it’s midnight, what the heck am I doing up?!) and here’s what I got:
I don’t know, I think I like it.
