Playing with Photoshop

Just feel like tuning up your dull-looking images? Well there’s a lot of ways to go about doing so. To begin with you should have a good image editor. Personally I recommend taking a look at the various products found at Adobe’s website.

Earlier today I downloaded an extra filter to my beloved image editor, Photoshop (CS2), made by Pixelpaper. It didn’t take me long to create a very cool looking image. How to do what I just did doesn’t need more than a few minutes of your time and some playing around with your mouse. The only thing worth mentioning is the structure effect which is found when selecting the “surface tab” and clicking “Bumpmap” rather than the more obvious “Surface” button…

I’ve included some original and modified images below:

Folded paper effect:
Norwegian Fjord

Ripped edges effect:

Ripped edges
As you see these filters allows you to Bend your image, turn in the sides of it with a curl. Crinkle and Crumple together your image for it to resemble a balled up piece of paper that’s been smoothed out.

There’s a lot more off course, but this gives you a hint (and some inspiration) as to what you can do…

That’s it for now – wishing you all a Merry Christmas & a Prosperous New Year!
