Yesterday I was playing around with a picture of a sheep. I wanted to see what I could do to change the picture and make it more creative.
I have quite a few programs, filters and plug – ins I can use. I actually had the free trial versions of Topaz Detail, Clarity, and Simplify. I know these will work in Photo Shop but I am not sure about what other programs they might work in.
On this first picture, I used Topaz Clarity most of all the filters and plugs – in I use you can adjust the settings until you like the way it looks on your image. This is because not all pictures will need the same settings.
The second picture I used Topaz Simplify and did a few minor adjustments. This is more like a painting, but I love the look because it is so soft and natural looking.
The third picture I used On One Photo Tools Professional edition it is a plug – in Editor for Photo Shop. I used several filters in there on this picture. Hollywood Intensity, Ortons and and a Overlay.
Sometimes it is fun to step outside of the box of normal every day editing and get creative and have a little fun with your pictures.
