Gilly's portrait

This is Tracey's fault, I had another post I was going to do but after seeing the picture of her mustang that she had done in Photo Shop.....well I started playing with Print Shop that has some pretty neat stuff in it. So here is a portrait of Gilly done in a sort of smudging effect. This was a picture of me and him, I cut me out, we were down by the creek when this was taken. I LOVE the effect this has, almost looks like an oil painting of him. (Click on it to make it bigger.)
I may have to print this one out and frame it!

Such a handsome bay boy (I'm a little partial to them myself!). I did click on the pic and it sure does look like an oil painting. Beautiful!

What a beautiful effect! It makes it look kind of like one of those paint by numbers horse pictures that used to be popular. :o)

That is beautiful....when I enlarged it, I really saw the oil painting look! Definitely print and frame it! Or have it printed onto a small canvas....that would be cool!

What a beautiful way to edit that photo of him. It does look like a painting. But he is so handsome I don't think there could ever be a bad picture of him. No wonder you love him so much :)

Colleen from Life in a Nutshell just gifted me with a year membership of Picnik, a photo-editing website/program. This is my first time using such a program and Wow! Looks like I have something else to steal my time...and I'm going to have so much fun! :)

Lovely portrait.

I have photoshop, but never learned to use it. It seems so complicated. Someday...

That's a wonderful portrait of Gilly. Now you've got me wanting to get some sort of photo program to do the same!

Oh, thanks everyone! It was fun playing with the program to make Gilly look like he had had his portrait done. Photo Shop has a lot more things you can do, I can't afford it, but Print Shop has some pretty neat features in it and it's much more affordable for me.
