Pretty Flowers in Vase

from Wiki Commons

I lightened this image a bit and then used FF sketchy painting on another copy. I merged both by using PSP arithmetic merge with emphasis on Lightest. I like how it turned out.

You can see the large size versions at hut18.com/flowersinvase.jpg for the original and hut18.com/sketchyflowersinvase.jpg for my version.

Re: Pretty Flowers in Vase

That's nice! I enjoy adding artsy effects to images. One advantage of this process is that it doesn't matter what quality of image you start out with in terms of resolution/size, since the pixels are replaced anyway. Even nasty iPad 2 stills look great after treatment.

This image, not necessarily mine, would make Palms very happy.

The addition of the appropriate frame plus shadow effect especially nice, Cupcake!
