Christo... this reminds me of all the ageing family polaroids (but the relatives don't have hats on)

- found an image on flickr that fit close enough to something i wanted to be the new background and hijacked it
- put it in gimp and roughly cloned out the old subject in that image
- cropped the cat roughly and ran a contrast and lomo filter over him to make him look like he does below
- dropped this on on top of the hijacked image
- roughly cloned out the stuff from the original image that was still around the cat
- applied a vignette filter
- cropped again and resized

Fun image to work on, ivoire!

Already great entries I see.

Like a drawing, Christo! I like it.

A really dreamy image, todd. Reminds me of the film Wizzard of oz (original )


Someone said Polaroids?

That reminded me of a fun little application I had downloaded once: Poladroid.

I used LR5 beta to do some basic things, exposure, cropping, contrast & clarity.
For the first version, I used Poladroid:




Because that put me in a nostalgic mood, I used FilmPack4.




Finally some Autumn effects from Color Efex (my favourite season ):

Thanks Bart and nice work with all entries so far! a fun image to play with.
-everything done in gimp/gmic
-resize/crop
-cloned out stuff
-ran a filter to make the sky blue (which unfortunately screws up the trees and rest of image)
-put this result over unfiltered copy and masked out as much as possible to just retain blue sky
-used lab mixer filter in gmic to boost colors (to an artificial looking level with the thought that it'd work well with the next step)
-ran two filters in gmic to produce the painterly effect, both adjusted to about 30% opacity
-burned some of the edges a bit and ran a dodge and burn filter in gmic and adjusted that result with a layer mask
-ran a detail enhancer filter in gmic called 'freaky details' and adjusted that to about 30% opacity (probably an unnecessary step but just messing around here)
-one last vignette filter at about 30% opacity

I did everything in Snapseed on th iPad.

First, I cropped. All work done on that image

First... adjusted the image with sharpening and details. Then Tuned it with increase to brightness, contrast, ambience.


Next: The "Grunge" presets: I kept going til I got a sepia with a texture i liked.


Last: Black and White after sharpening, then boosted contrast
