Yesterday in twitterland, I set a challenge to Mammasaurus, Motherventing and Bluebirdsunshine to see who could use the most effects on one photo and to post the results today. Not being the competitive type *ahem* this is just a bit of fun but you absolutely have to go and see their
So the brief: See how many processes, effects, stickers and text can you use in one photo using only Picnik.
So from this original, straight from the pocket camera shot:
I used Heatmap Infrared, Gooify, Posterize and Adjustable Threshold. You can literally overlay one process on top of another to build up surreal images.
Then a different set of effects:
For this image I used used Hypnotic, Boost, Vignette, HDRish and then, for good measure, Ortonish.
Finally, one last little play with a few more effects:
For this one I used 1960's, Seasonal Space Textures, and Amalia Scissored and Solar System stickers.
Obviously Picnik can be used in a little less extreme way to adjust exposure on your snaps, improve the colour balance and if you subscribe you can edit our those annoying little blemishes too as well as gaining many more effects to use. It is seriously easy to use so go and have a play. If you want to join in with this little bit of fun, link up your entries into the Most Ridiculously Over-Edited Photo Competition in the comments section below.
Who knows, this could start a regular linky!
UPDATE: A new linky there shall be. Have a look here.
