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!
