For Photo Art Friday, Bonnie's challenge is for us to use "a tool, method or style we've been wanting to try." Actually, as far as my programs go, I've tried each of them several times. I still haven't worked much on combining images with textures.....Bonnie inspired me to try that a few weeks ago. I fell back on an application I purchased a while ago, used like crazy until I purchased RadLab and learned more about adding textures. This is called Lo-Fi, which does adjusts three things on each image: film, mood, frame.
This particular image of a frosty branch in my backyard was first converted to black and white with Nelly Nero's Grunge Me Up, RadLab's Superfun Happy and the Lo-Fi's Velvet, Crunchy, Viewfinder application. That's a lot!
