One-to-three is a monthly photo processing challenge on my other web site, theSquirrelChase.com. 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 July 2020 contribution:
How to get the looks above:
I did four instead of three. These all use open source software: the GIMP (Gnu Image Manipulation Program) and the G’mic plug-in for the GIMP.
The top row is filters built into the GIMP: Both the Cartoon and Simple linear iterative clustering are found in the Filters menu. Filters>Artistic>Cartoon and Filters>Artistic>Simple linear iterative clustering.
The second row uses two G’mic filters. Both dream smoothing and Kuwahara are in the Artistic group. Filters>G’MIC-Qt>Artistic.
Here is the original image:
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 WordPress.org skills.
