WHEN LESS IS MORE: MINIMALISM

Thursday’s Special: Minimalism


The perfect subject for me while I’m test driving Topaz’s “Simplify” filters. It has a lot of permutations, but the thing is does best is take a photograph and remove small and weak elements to produce everything from an oil painting to a simple line drawing. Exactly what a particular filter will do depends on the picture you use as the base … and what other filters you apply.

    • I am really pleased with these filters. Most Topaz filters are really expensive, but there were not. They are not merely fun, but some effects are lovely. Others are more than a bit weird I doubt I’ll ever use them, but you never know. There may be a bizarre photo challenge one of these days and I will be ready 🙂
