Playing Around

I was playing around with the next to last image of my painting in a Photoshop-like program called GIMP, which runs in Linux. (There is also a version for Windows.) The results are below.



I took the picture to a 'grayscale' and ran it through the 'cartoon' filter. Cool, huh?

I use this as a 'wallpaper' on my system. You are free to click on the picture, download it and save it on your system, and use it as a wallpaper if you wish.

I like the cartoon filter. :)

I like the grayscale. It is a very dramatic appeal. You are way a head of me with photoshop. I need to get myself up to speed.

I do think you can be a fiscal conservative and have a liberal heart.

Two big pieces will be posted Saturday!

One more thing.

How did you get the Blick Art ad for your blog? I would like that one too.

Hi there!

Thanks for your comment today. And I truly dig Fred's work too.

I like the black and white very much. It has a moody qaulity that is very rich, despite the name of the filter. Looks like there is a story attached.

I love Photoshop, but have never heard of GIMP!

ohmommy: Thanks. It was a fun thing to do.

Fred: I do a lot of photography, although I don't blog it. Photoshop is the new darkroom.

WetPaint: Hello. Yes, there is a story. It's scattered through a number of posts in this blog. And the GIMP is a PhotoShop wannabe that runs in Linux - although is there is a Windows version, as well.

What a cool effect. Is GIMP less expensive than Photoshop? I've been looking for new graphic editing software.

lady: The GIMP is free. You can go here and download the program. There is a version for M$Windows. GIMP is not quite as sophisticated as Photoshop, but it IS close and it IS free.
