Digital Fantasy Photo Manipulation


Recommended Posts

Do you have a picture example of what you are trying to accomplish? "Digital Fantasy Photo Manipulation" is pretty broad.

No, Paint.NET is not spyware...but, installing it is an IQ test. ~BoltBait

That helps a lot. Thanks!

EDIT: Just wanted to say...an extremely important, yet often overlooked factor in photo manipulations is that you need to have a good photo to begin with. If your photo isn't good, your photo manipulation cannot be much better, so choose your photo wisely (or take good photos like a pro!)

The first image looks to me like a simple color and lighting adjustment with some well-placed abstract lines and spots.

For ideas on how to do the lines, check out these two tutorials:

Use the levels and hue&saturation adjustments to edit the color/lighting

The second image looks like it is just a really cool photo with some color adjustment to change the mood. I would recommend using the color balance or curves adjustments to get the color the way you want it.

Here's a tutorial that explains how the curves adjustment works:

What you are trying to achieve is the manipulation of various photos, renders or stock images to create a particular genre of work.

There are not a lot of people working in this particular genre but if you look here: http://forums.getpaint.net/index.php?/topic/23117-jim100361-my-stuff/page__st__280 you will see how Jim has combined photos & other stock images to create a new image. There are of course many other fine examples in various galleries but Jim's photo manips are very cool.

You can also create all of the elements yourself & I would suggest looking here: http://forums.getpaint.net/index.php?/topic/10135-welshblue-air-cooled/ and here: http://forums.getpaint.net/index.php?/topic/14694-yellowman/

Again this is just a tiny sample of the excellent works achieved by some users. Take a stroll through the galleries to see what you can find. We are always willing to share ideas & knowledge :)
