This look auspicious!
Thanks :-)The new algorithm is not quite ready yet, though. It does look promising one some images and not so on others. And it's a bit slow (I haven't started optimizing it).I still hope to release version 1.8 near Christmas.Regards,David
merry Christmas, David.Your software looks just like what I'm looking for.Unfortunately, I am clueless as to how to get the characteristics I'm looking for.I suggest you provide a parameters file for each photo on your site and on your blog, so if I see something and say "I want that effect on my photo", I can simply load it and voila.
Thanks for the suggestion. I will try to add the parameters used in my next 'FotoSketches' (I just coined the word).The only thing is when I work on a new algorithm, the parameters change a lot, so when version 1.8 will finally be released the images shown on this post will probably require very different parameters from the one I used.
Very very nice.Suggestions:Can you design a pencil (BW/outline/ink) style that removes most of the 'chatter' (the tiny lines and scruff bits), so it looks very much like a paperback illustralion? (In your two latest, the cathedral (?) and the windmill - see the teeny tiny lines inside the main lined areas - maybe these could be cleaned up, or even made closer and denser, for shading?)Also, I've been playing with the tool, and I've found that running painting 3 with default setting, then running it again on the saved output of the first run give a VERY realistic watercolour effect - all washed out and bleeding colour into colours. Really lovely!Bye the way - enjoy your coffee!
