Artistic blur created after the photo was taken,
using Picasa and the focal zoom effect.

More blur…this is called the softened look, also from Picasa.

I love the cubist effect created in Gimp. It’s about 
the only thing I can do with Gimp, but at least it’s fun.

  1. I like all three of these, but love the apples. Since I don't really do "effects" in post processing, I was going to skip this one, but now you've inspired me to go play!

  2. What fun explorations, Deb! I like the cubist effect — that would make a lovely framed image. The softened apples are also very pretty — something very peaceful about them. I will miss Kat's exploring with a camera series — I learned so much!
