    Color Me Happy

    I was messing around with GIMP, there are so many options, I will never figure out until I have played around with it enough. I tried changing this picture color to sepia, so it would look like an old picture. Because I remember seeing old creepy pictures where people look odd in them. I look pretty strange in this picture so I tried to change the color to make it look like an old photo. Though color didn't turn out too well as you can see.



    Oh well.

    How could you tell? Old style of photo such as that always had that type of feel to it. I think it looks pretty good to be honest. But of cores the fun is actually trying to find the style you want.

    Actually I think that looks pretty good, Zev. ^.^

    I've been using GIMP for a few years now, and found there's a lot of fun things to do with color. It took me a while to play with it and experiment.

    You can also play with the color level, which paired with the sepia can change the tones and shadows.

    And as Scourge said, old photos can have that sort of strange, almost ghostly blur feel to them at times.

    It's like you took a picture right when a nuke went off outside.

    If I can get the original photo, I can do a true sepia in photoshop, no film grain though.
