it's all in the editing

For those that have asked about some of my 'larger than life' photos, rest assured that it's not because my camera is super-expensive or has special powers :) It's all in the post-editing.

I took these 11 photos of a huge tree beside a building (yes, I repeated one to fill in the small squares of the mosaic) and used autostitch to combine them into one beautiful scene. Click here for the autostitch download.and/or more information. *EDIT* The mosaic was done in photoscape, too.

Of course, the finished scene is not perfect, so I cropped the shot to include what I want to have in the final photo.

Then I used the clone brush in photoscape to fill in the edges. Click here for the photoscape download and more information.


Of course, sometimes, I just can't leave well enough alone, so I used the 'threshold' button on photoscape to create this:

Please feel free to ask any questions about any of these processes in a comment or email me at tenfootheart (at) gmail (dot) com.

Now this is fascinating. I have Photoscape, but no time to play. I may have to make time!

And what is even more fascinating was the About You feature. Gee, I thought I was brave to marry my carpenter and here you run off to NZ to meet your true love. Yes. Fascinating.

Very cool! I'd never heard of photoscape - I will have to check it out.

Love your final image!

I have an older version of Corel Paint Shop Pro XI Photo and as if that wasn't temptation enough. Now I want to play with this too!!
