The original photograph of the lodge at Lake Greenleaf.

Artistic Effect "Oil Painting". Not quite pointillism, but very interesting.

Artistic Effect "Ink Sketch".

Artistic Effect "Pencil Sketch"

Yesterday my friend Micki posted a wonderful photo of people fishing in a lovely neighborhood pond they enjoy. (See it HERE) I remarked that it looked like someting that was painted by a French impressionist. Then I began to wonder if there were some photographic manipulation software that would render a photograph to resemble a painting. It did not take long for me to discover that Paint.Net can do just that. Above are several examples. Give it a try. Get Paint.Net free by clicking HERE

That camera is totally amazing (and interesting). I go to art classes three times a week to very slowly learn how to paint and draw and you do it with a click of a button!
You're right, that's a lovely photograph from Micki.

J'ai Paint.Net sur mon bureau mais je ne sais guère m'en servir. Jusque maintenant, je retouche légèrement, et si nécessaire, mes photos avec le logiciel allant avec mon appareil photo Canon. Il va donc falloir que je me penche sur les possibilités de Paint.Net...

je vais charger ce, il m'a l'air bien utile pour transformer des photos en jolis tableaux !:
