Pointy: playing with Picasa


There are times when you want to do something more with your photo than just let it look like a damned photo; that’s when you can get creative with some post-production editing.

This photo was shot using my Olympus’ grainy black & white art mode, with the cat back-lit against a window. In Picasa, I boosted the values, then applied the pencil sketch effect, which somehow turned out looking like a pencil sketch done over the top of a watercolour wash. To warm the image, rather than use warmify then desaturate, I used a touch of 1960s effect.
