I've always used my computer to do the bare minimum of manipulation of my photos. After I got a Wacom drawing pad, I started doing more experimenting with Photoshop, Kai's Power Tools, and Dabbler.
This photo was taken in the Japanese Tea Garden in San Francisco's Golden Gate Park. It was manipulated in Photoshop with Kai's Power Tools.
|Planetset Over New Golden Gate Bridge
After I made this photo of the Golden Gate Bridge, I began to think that the empty sky was begging for something to fill it. So, since I grew up reading science fiction, I imagined a new solar system, new planet, and a recreation of a familiar environment.
I used Photoshop to select areas of a black and white photo and then to draw in it. Gee, it's almost as if I can actually draw.
This photo of the Grand Canyon at sunset was manipulated in Dabbler to give it the appearance of an oil painting.
