New Group

Hi All,

Just a few moments of your time to tell you about the new group that I am co-hosting. It was launched on Friday and already we have a number of people who have joined in and started to submit works. This eof you who know me will know that I take great pleasure in taking some of my more mundane photography and transforming them into images that look like they are oil paintings and/or water colours. I searched Redbubble high and low and could not find a group that was dedicated to this particular form of photo manipulation so decided to ask to open a group up.

That group is here Photo Transformations

Please take a few moments to take a look and if you like what you see why not join. Or, if you would like to know more about the processes involved in making a photo turn into a Van-Gogh Wannabe or a Turner classic this is the group to join.

There are various methods of transforming photo’s into paintings and I hope the group will showcase the best of these techniques from the use of plug-ins to stand alone programmes. The main criteria of the group is that the image MUST have stated out life as a photo. It MUST have been transformed electronically. Other rules are available as you join.

So please if you have a few moments, come on and take a look. As we gain more members I hope to be able to run “for fun” challenges and I hope soon to be running feature’s and featured members work.

Thanks for taking the time to look. If you want to see some examples of these types of transformations my examples are Here
