Sophomore Class (Digital Makeover)

Glass Apple - Royalty-free image from Stock.XCHNG
This is a bit of a teacher's revenge (curator's revenge?) - I'm offering you a more difficult picture to work with for this Digital Workshop (is it our 4th only?). But you guys have been resting for a while, so it's time to challenge those eyes and brain cells.
No rules, no restrictions - just flex those creative muscles. Anyone can participate, and for those of you who haven't tried this before, here is what you need to know:
  • Click on the picture and copy it to your end (this is a royalty-free image, so you don't have to worry about altering it)
  • Use any digital graphic programme to alter the image - It can be Photoshop (any version), GIMP, PainBox, anything you have. Remember to tell us what it is.
  • It would be nice if you could remember some of the steps, and share with the rest of us how you got to your end result. If you can't keep track, focus on what you feel are the interesting effects.
  • Don't forget to email me a copy of your work - but if you prefer not to or don't know how, point me to your work and I'll copy it off your site if needed. My email address is somewhere on my profile.
  • By participating in this workshop, you are implicitly allowing me to use the image here and on my gallery website, no ifs, ands or buts - and no whining.
  • I reserve the right to choose what ultimately goes on the "wall" (the page on my gallery website). No hurt feelings, ok?
Start your engine! You have until next Sunday to submit.

Hi, placed my entry at http://starsandprayers.blogspot.com/2008/01/for-first-time-i-am-in-challenge.html

I used MS paint and MS Office Picture Manager - I hope two graphics programs is acceptable since to me they are like a married couple.

Divorce would be so hard on their children.

No worries - no rules for this challenge, gave up on those a long time ago since no one pays attention anyway. also, I don't know why we insist on calling these things a challenge, seems awfully macho-macho to li'l ol' me.

Ok, well I don't have any fancy shmancy photo shop stuff but I don't want to miss out so I'll give this a go using my rather limited resources! It's supposed to fun after all isn't it?

Hi Rima. Thanks for visiting me. I wish I'd caught this challenge in time. Wow, the possibilities.

Debi said...

Does "until next Sunday" mean through Sunday? Wait, why am I asking you, Rima? We never pay attention to your answers anyway!

Love ya! And I got mine done just now.
