Playing with one photo of a rose


It’s another Pink Saturday with Beverly at How Sweet the Sound. Be sure to stop by and see all the Pinks!

I love roses. I had this bouquet in the bedroom.


I am so impressed with some of my blogging friends who take a photo and give it many looks with the photo enhancing programs that are so readily available on the internet. I am using Photoscape today. This is a free program.

These pictures are really lovely. The effects are quite incredible aren't they. BJ from Sweet Nothings told me about Photoscape but I haven't been there yet. I can't wait to try it out now!

Hope you have a wonderful weekend.

Best wishes,

And no matter how you change's still a rose! Isn't it fun to play around with editing programs? I have Photoshop but I never seem to have the time to really sit down and play with it. Thanks for sharing...this gives me a push to try some of the various looks to a photo. Have a wonderful weekend.

Carol, you did a great job "playing" with that beautiful rose. BTW, how did you make that collage effect on the photo at the top of your blog?

Hi Carol

The rose photograph and the way you have changed it is great. As you know I love doing that with either Virtual Classic painter, picnik, Big Huge Labs or photoscape. So many different progarmmes , it is just finding the time!!

Hope you are having a great weekend, we have had lovely sunny weather so far?

Great pix and a beauiful mosaic, I haven't played with photoscape very much so far myself.
Love the way you've split your header pic.

These are beautiful variations of the rose. You are always an inspiration of your quest for new programs!
