We are adjusting to being home nicely and Shadow is behaving so well, it’s rather scary. Did he suddenly mature while we were gone – or is he still too tired to explode with energy???? Only time will tell!
I am looking for some advice from you all out there. My intention is to spend the rest of the year processing all the photographs that we took in New Zealand. While I have some basic photo editing software, I think it’s time to upgrade because there are some things I’d like to do that are beyond the capabilities of my software. What I don’t know which software is right for me.
I have looked at Photoshop, but I'm not readily finding a feature that I want. It may be in Photoshop, but I'm not sure which version. In any case - what I want to make sure I can do is convert a digital image into a cartoon for the tapestry weaving. In one sense, I want to simplify lines and even the number of colors for a representative image.
For example, simplify the lines of this and possibly the number of colors or values.
In another sense, I would like to take a photo and really break it down into regions of color for a more abstract weaving. I've tried blurring a photo for this abstract, but then I still need to pull out lines that differentiate the color transitions.
For example, take this one, simplify the number of colors and values and return organics shapes of color.
Thanks in advance for your help!
