I’m still playing around with photos.
I had an idea to transform a portrait into a graphic image. I though I’d share the transformation steps with you. Maybe you’ll want to experiment too!
The most critical step was the first one. Selecting a photo which suited the purpose. It had to be clutter free with a striking focal point. I selected this photo because I liked his strong features and it had a clean background.
To transform the photo into a painterly image, I used Nexmuse to Turn Your Photos Into Art, using their ‘Pop Art Red’ style
The ‘Pop Art Red’ style didn’t have enough orange intensity for me, so I loaded the image into Lightroom and adjusted the colors a bit more.
For a finishing touch, I loaded this image into Adobe Spark and added text and backdrop.
Resulting in this final image.
What do you think? Is this something that you’d like to give a try?
Ping me back here or at RE-IMAGINE ORANGE so that I can see!
