Playing with your Pics

Sketch Effect
Inspired by the lovely artwork in my new Battlefront Blitzkrieg rulebook, I've been playing about with a free online photo manipulation tool, modifying one of my favourite pics which is an M60 Patton tank sitting on high ground and dominating my Vietnam battlefield.

These are some of my favourite ones and I thought you guys might be interested.  This is the tool I used: http://www.picturetopeople.org

Anyone else found some good effects or tools to play with their model pics?

"Crackle Effect" 
"Cartoonizer effect"
"Grunge Effect"

  1. I like just playing with the images in the google editor. Did some space hulk and deadzone one's late last year and in March this year from Canadian Open.

  3. I've used this site a couple of times http://apps.pixlr.com/editor/

    There are some useful effects under "adjustments" and "filters"

  5. I´ve done loads of "fiddling" with pics..all using the wordprogramme
    The banner and the "painting" of the Lord protector and the "Anthem" pages on the link are all done with word.

  6. Several years ago I was lucky enough to score a free copy of Photoshop Elements which has some great filter effects in it. But I rarely use them on my blog pictures; it takes me long enough to do the basic brightness/contract/colour adjustments on them, plus resizing them so that they don't count against Google's storage limits. They sometimes get used on my 'real' photos though :)

  7. Can be a bit of fun adjusting pics. Can add a bit more atmosphere.
