I have some time to play for a few days and felt a desire to do some Photoshop and play with Filter Forge plug ins that I got for Christmas. This is a Grunge effect and is applied to an old photo I took of Skerries library when I lived there a few years ago.
The filter used here is called Artomatic – this is me with a choppy, textured haircut… I’m thinking of going back to it. Look kind of sad or possibly haunted here! Probably in the middle of something fairly geeky and having to look up for a quick pic.
And finally, for now, one of the famous Skerries mills. The filter used to render this one is called Dabber.
Filter Forge is very powerful and, though not quick to render, produces some fantastic effects from the subtle, to the quite pronounced effects, I’ve used here.
