The optional theme this week over at Bonnie's Pixel Dust Photo Art was "Hardware" but I was just not feeling the love on that subject. Instead, I decided to share some of the playing around I did with my new "software". I had received a fabulous offer via email from Serif.com in December as they were giving deeply discounted prices on a number of software items that been replaced by upgraded versions. I was particularly interested in the PhotoPlus4 and ordered a copy.
I also got a lot of practice with watermarking my photos.
My model for this session was Zack, a Ragdoll/American Shorthair cross.
This first shot is the original.
Here I have used a Giger filter . . .
and this is also the Giger Filter with different settings on the sliders.
The Filter I used for the next two are both called Munchist and again they show the variations available with different settings on the adjustment sliders.
This style is called Expressionist . . .
. . . and Impressionist.
Zack in Oils . . .
. . . and Paint & Ink,
and finally, Van Gogh style.
I have been having a lot of fun with this and trying out all the tutorials available. So much more to learn. And for the record, I am not being compensated in any way from Serif.com.
Please do stop by Bonnie's and tour the gallery of this weeks submissions.
