Adding Special Effects to Your Photos - a Commentary
Here is the first iteration. It is pretty simple, all you do is take out all the color information and the photo becomes a black and white image.
Here is a filter called pointillize. It breaks the image down into a series of dots. I thought we were all buying higher and higher resolution cameras to avoid this, but here it is folks:
In each of these example, I am reverting back to the original before adding any more changes to avoid muddying up the image. OK, let's try a couple of more of the so-called special effects. I have to warn you however, as you can see from my attitude, I do not normally use any of these tools.
The next special effect is really dramatically different than the original. This is an embossed effect and has its place in some types of design. This is quite a way from my style of photography.
