More Photographic Art with Livie

Okay, so Livie likes helping me play around with Picnik.

When I say she helps me, I mean, she (sometimes) chooses the photo (but sometimes she has me pick one for her). Then I upload it into Picnik, click on "Edit," and then on "Effects."

And then Livie sees the examples of different effects on the left hand side of the screen, asking me to try one or another (and another), until we find an effect that she likes (after considering what it's done to our chosen photo).

Here's what we've done.

The original photo - an old tree at the park I was at the other day:


 And the final product - we chose the "Heat Map" effect, specifically, its "thermal" mode, at 50%:

Looks cool!

She liked the fact that the sky was partially purple, and that toward the bottom, there were some fuchsia-like branches; she loves pinks and purples. Oh, and she likes that this effect made the tree look like a spooky Halloween tree.

I like the highlights and shadows the effect enhanced, as well as the colors.
