Just To Set the Record Staight

A lot of you complimented me on the sketch I included in my last post, a sketch for which many of you gave me credit as having done it by hand. I appreciate your comments but I’m just not that talented.

So I want to set the record straight. I took the photo that Sadje used for her What Do You See? prompt…

…and used a photo editing app, Prisma, that I have on my iPhone…

…to come up with this “sketch” below.

I did not sketch this from scratch. I even noted in my post, “Photo modification at bottom made using the Prisma app for iPhones.”

My only handiwork was in applying three different filters to the original image to make it look as if it could have been something sketched by the protagonist in my story.

But thank you for believing that I actually had the talent to make as sketch like that on my own. I’m very flattered.

    That is almost like cheating, but you did create it with the use of some special software and it turned out good.

    You do have talent in getting the filters to work for you in just the right way.

    I am very careful to label whose photos are whose in my posts and no matter what I do, everyone assume I took them all. Well, not everyone, but probably 90%. I’m pretty sure most people don’t read must past the headline and scanning photographs. I have “regulars” who also read, but most people really don’t.

    Great photo fun Fandango. I did have a fleeting thought but went yeah…..nah. Being a photo fiddler myself I could see that it wasn’t done by hand and then I read the disclaimer. I didn’t read the congratulatory comments. Now I have to see how many were fooled inadvertently 🙂

      I was fooled because I could do that. I can also copy, very well, famous artist drawings. An art teacher actually stole a piece I did as an assignment (on a field trip at the art museum in San Francisco).

    Some of the filters and apps that are available can really do amazing things with a photo!

    You’re very talented, I can’t do anything with software 🙂

      The apps make it relatively easy to apply different “artistic” filters to photographs.

      Hidden deep down where it may never emerge.
