Re: All aglow

Re: All aglow

Preprocessing for contrast (help via Xero's Supersmooth filter for initial Aniso) and then Autotract vector simplication. Other color/gamma/sat adjustments.

Re: All aglow

Typo; should have said Autotrace; can try the online interface if you don't have a supported OS. I really like vector simplication (lazy I am). It really enhances Aniso. I've posted the script before, but it's been a while. Below's the script that I use:

Code:
AUTOTRACE -corner-threshold 75 -despeckle-level 16 -despeckle-tightness 2 -output-format svg -output-file c:\temp\d.svg -report-progress %1
I port the SVG file directly into GIMP (GIMP reads vectored SVG thanks to Ghostscript; I like SVG since it keeps transparencies. When saving as EPS, GIMP doesn't read the transparencies), and blend it with the original (the transparencies need to be filled; if I were to use an EPS file, the transparencies would default with white which makes for a terrible situation). I know it's a little techy, so I apoligize for this, but this can't be helped.

Re: All aglow

I just rolled the dice in the Kyoto color filter in Flaming Pear filters and thought this was a cool look.
