Title: PHOTO ART Filters (d) Cut-out
Post by: Shortsighted on July 17, 2020, 01:45:23 pm
The simplification of the photo image was previously mentioned but I failed to identify the filter. The Cut-out filter works primarily on the background of some scenes but it also wraps itself around strong, bold shapes and punches them to attention. Once again, a sliding scale adjustment provided with the filter lets you control the effect.

Ally, I'm very surprised that you feel that way about punched-out filter effects.
I could not imagine that the effect would be anyone's favourite processing feature.
I prefer the effects that transform a photograph into a paint rendering, as in
oil paint, or acrylic paint because I enjoy the slight simplification of the image
that a paint filter delivers. Certainly, those last filtered shots also looks like a
rendering but they are decidedly more impressionistic, ... not that there is anything
wrong with that approach. I suppose that I should have expected your pleasure since
you liked "Outnumbered and Considering One's Options".

I was going to do one more chapter involving the topic of filter stacking but then
thought it better to skip that theme because the results can be very bazaar indeed.
Now that I know you are an art-head I may actually post that final topic after all,
even if no one else will enjoy it.

I like these pics, but I can't even tell why I like them. Really lack of the terms to describe.  :D
