Photo Special Effects
#1
Just wondering whether anyone plays with photo collages or tools such as Repligator which produces special effects on your images? I think they might be cool, but the novelty might wear off after a while.

I think subtle post processing is always better, and shows more of the technique of the photographer. What do you think?

I've just discovered :
Contrast Masking
Overlaying inverse pictures
and the channel mixer.

that's about all I got at the moment Smile

I am enjoying seeing what these do to my photos. I think for the moment, I'm still about subtle.. I'm not in the class of most on here who can produce amazing post-production effects...

I've recently been playing with layers... especially duplicating a layer, making it monochrome and then deleting certain elements to let the color show through.

Selective Colouring was my first foray into post-processing... see here

Those were done before I understood layers... I would just select what I wanted to keep in colour - invert the selection - convert to greyscale. Layers gives you a much broader range of options...

That was one of my first type of effects to apply. Here is one of my first images.

PetDude, try it like this:

Just use the url of the pbase page itself and add .jpg; don't link to the image properties.
Cool

Well of course bigger is better ( :!!!: ) but no, I just see a red X on your post. If you can see it yourself, it's likely just the the properties URL is in your cache.
