Badge for one-to-three photo processing challenge.

One-to-Three Photo Processing Challenge

One-to-three is a monthly photo processing challenge on my other web site, I’d love to have you join in: The challenge is simple: take one photo and get creative with it by processing it three different ways. Then share the results, with a link to this month’s post. I’ll do a start up post on the first of each month and at the end of the month I’ll do a round up, so we can all share in the creativity and fun.

Here’s my March 2020 contribution:

How to get the looks above:

For some reason the morning sun hitting this pear got me inspired. After I used the GIMP to heal some of the brown lines. I probably should have done something about my vacuum in the background too.

The kaleidoscope filter in the GIMP: Filters>Distorts>Kaleidoscope. I thought it was kind of cool how it made an almost art deco looking pattern of the bookshelves…and the spot I didn’t remove from the pear makes the pear look like a cartoon critters staring at me.

The G’mic plug-in for the GIMP has many different filters (over 500). This uses the Pencil filter in the black and white group.

This uses Topaz Studio 2, the Chalk Pastel look applied at 63%.


Since having to isolate due to the pandemic, last spring, I’ve been doing a lot of experimentation with photo processing and I thought it might be fun to share some of the things I’ve discovered and see what others are doing.

I’m hosting the challenge on the other site to try and keep my skills.
