Has anyone tried the Prisma App yet? It is a bit different than using filters. It uses artificial intelligence to turn photos into art. It is pretty impressive and you can check out lots of user submitted results on their Facebook Page. The only thing that I find odd is that the photo outputs are a square shape. Here are a few of my sunset pictures from yesterday so you can get an idea of the power of this application. Enjoy!
In a post from June of last year, I praised Google Photos. I said it was good for backing up, organizing, and storing photos – and it still is! I recently read an article that said the editing process was pretty cool. I thought to myself, why would you use Google Photos to edit your photographs. There are so many other applications available. Oh well, why not give it a try? It is super easy. There are options in my Google Photos iPad App to fine tune, crop, rotate or add filters to your photos. Using the “Back to original” feature, you can easily revert to the original photo in case you don’t fall in love with your edits. What you see above is an edited shot from my walk along the Town Lake Hike and Bike Trail in Austin last weekend. Below is the original photo. This will give you an idea of some of the fun you can have with their simple photo editing process. I suggest that you give it a try and see how you like it. 🙂
Here is a Pixlr edit of a photo I took in Taylor, Texas a few weeks ago. This place is a groovy looking bed and breakfast called “Pecan Manor“. I like experimenting with the watercolor style in Pixlr, and the original photo is below for comparison.
When you get stuck in traffic on I-35, just pull over to the local Dairy Queen. Walk into the store with the setting sun at your back, throw down some cash, and order a small Oreo Blizzard. Soon, things will be right in the world, and you can plan a scenic, alternate route home that gets you off of the dreaded Interstate Highway.
