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 in the comments to this month’s post. I’ll do a start up post on the first of each month, including a round up of entries from the preceding month, so we can all share in the creativity and fun.

Here’s my June 2022 contribution:

How to get the looks above:

The first is a tinted sketch effect using tools and filters built into the GIMP. A post describing how to do this is here: How to get a tinted sketch effect using the GIMP.

G’mic is a plug in for the GIMP (and other programs I believe) with over 500 filters from basic editing to advanced and a myriad of artistic effects as well.

The second is the Illustration Look filter in the Artistic group of G’MIC filters.

Variation number 3 uses G’MIC’s Morphology Painting filter.

This month I focused on using the GIMP and the G’MIC plug-in for it. If you are interested in trying out the GIMP and G’MIC you might find this page on my other web site useful: GIMP Articles and Tutorials.

P.S. These are the same techniques and filters on a landscape in the June One-to-Three on the Squirrel Chase.

Challenge Background

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 alive.
