I love special effects! It works so well on a photo that has ‘problems’. Do you ever take a photo and what you saw was not what you captured in your photo? That’s the best time to use textures.
When we travel to the mountains of NC, our last few miles are on I 26 and this is our first view of the mountains that we love. I took the photo to Picmonkey and used Posterize to give it this neat effect.
I meant to use it as a banner. (all you need to do is remember to resize it to the proper size)
One afternoon at Fletcher park, the sun was making everything dull. (Below is the original and then 4 changes to the same photo.)
So instead of trying to make it look ‘less dull’, I used Dusk to make it even duskier.
Then I played a little more and made it night time! lol
The Paint effect gave the sky more color.
I also love using Pencil Sketch in Picassa.
