A place for those who like to apply artistic effects to photos or create images of their own from scratch. Well, it's sometimes not really art because good 'effects' can be found as a result of trial and error or by accident <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />. Nonetheless, it can be fun to apply effects to photos and the results can definitely look artistic. So, take a photo and apply some of those 'filters' that are hidden within many photo editing programs and show the results here (usual image size rules apply).

That was fun! Tried various effects before settling for this - probably a bit OTT, but you did say 'art'.



Here is the original - the road, lined with copper beech trees (not showing the colour too well) leading up to the gates of Sandringham House.

Good effects! Here's a crinkly plastic photo (using the 'Plastic' filter in Photo-Paint 8).

These are all so much fun. The plastic is amazing and, Gary, the one of Freddie is awesome!

Nice 'arty' images .

Creating images from scratch can also be interesting. This one was done using a 'Draw' (as opposed to 'Paint') program called Xara Xtreme. It starts of with rectangles and a circles added together. Then a bevelled 'gold' effect is applied. The 'M' is added on top of that and given the same gold treatment. The background and shadows came last.

I don't have any sophisticated software installed. For that effect I used a few of the photobucket options, but not sure which now as I was playing with various combined settings.

The one below is pop art, from a picture of part of my draught-excluder.




This one is a bit of cheat's option - one click and it's done!

The paint has run and the paper has curled on this photo. Photo-paint 8's 'Page Curl' and 'Wet Paint' filters used:

That brings back memories of many hours spent using my "Spirograph". Here's a picture that shows some of those in case anyone isn't familiar with them.

I loved my spirograph, too, Sandy!

This is a horse photo that I did all kinds of things too, but I liked the result.

I'd need to learn how to apply a more natural texture to the window to make this look more convincing. There is no such window or brick wall. These were created using Xara Xtreme. Guildford Castle Keep is real enough. Sit the photo behind the false window and wall for the finished image:

ClaraSue, That almost looks like a child, arms extended and jumping, in the middle of yours. djs and tw, very neat. That brick wall looks real to me and the window's not too bad - amazing stuff you can do with that program, tw.

A bit like lilyalli's cats this one. The effect is done with a Photo-Paint filter called psychedelic. Poor goose! :
