    Weird Photo Challenge

    If you're looking for a new avatar, try a little photo manipulation. I was looking for one so I did a little photo play. I almost decided on this one, but it did not work well in the smaller image. I used the "difference" effect and "lighting effects" it. Now I want to see yours. Go ahead, do a little photo play. Twist it, twirl it, paint on it. Let's see how weird you can get!

    New Avatar

    In this one, I pinched the photo a few times for the final result and decided on it for my new avatar.

    Nice flower avatar cathyd.

    I looked and looked and finally found the layer / difference menu. And, made this simple test image. I just used Paint Roller on upper layer to blend from. I took this photo of surface of the lake few years back. As a photo it was not a strong image, but as a blended image it really bring out the image pattern.

    Nice Work

    Hi Ridix, You are right. The special effect really did bring out the pattern of your photo. I enjoy using special effects in photos and my artwork. Thanks a lot for sharing!

    Rose from My Yard

    Here's one I got creative with. A photo of a rose from my yard a few summers ago. It is pretty much a perfectly shaped rose and it has made a great subject for my photo play in the past, and recently.

    Heres one I did. I used the "color dodge" setting. I think it made the sunset pop. The original picture is one I took in Jamaica last year.

    Wow!

    Wow, Justin. That is awesome! Thanks for sharing. And how about that "color dodge" feature? Is that is AR? Where? I love the effect it had on your photo. I think you're right about it making the sunset pop. I'll bet Jamaica was beautiful.

    Thanks Yes Jamaica was gorgeous I went snorkaling and the water was so clear you could see down to the very bottom, I would say it had to be around 15 ft. deep where we were. Or maybe more.


    Click the little arrow that is pointing out on the lay you want to change the effect. Click the the that says "normal" (labeled "Blend"). Go down to "More Blend Modes". It is the 8th one down.

    Here I took a picture, and used it as a stencil with different color paints. I messed around with the inverse, and flips of the picture.

    Oh Yeah!

    Oh yeah! Duh! I did see that Justin, when I used the "difference" effect, but I forgot it was there. Hehe! Goofy me. I'm so glad you posted that nice illustration so other people who check out this thread can see where some of the "effects" menus are. Thanks so much Justin. Your illustration is great!
