I recently downloaded the Paint.net - a free image and photo editing program - and have been having fun playing around with the various gizmos there. I am a novice with all this computer enhanced imagery, but it’s fun to see what I can do.
I took a photo of a plate of shells and began to make the swirl patterns which turned out like this. I like the enhanced version of the photo much better than the boring plate of shells. I’ve turned it into a mousepad and will most likely use the image for other items at some point.
