I took the original photo below at Disney World. Although it was a great trip, this was another snapshot that was so boring I almost deleted it. It was perfect for my experiments with editing photos in Picasa to see if I could make them more interesting.
What a difference! After spending some time working on it, I really like the finished product. It now looks just like a children’s book illustration.
It did take a fair amount of time but it was a lot of fun. The steps I used are below.
- Auto contrast
- Soft focus
- Comic book
- Drop shadow
- And I removed an obtrusive branch in Paint
