Bitsy jumped up onto my lap this morning while I had my phone out so I snapped a quick photo. The camera lens on my phone is nearly always smudged with fingerprints, I rarely remember to wipe them off. I managed to reduce the fog somewhat by upping the contrast and running it through a couple of Snapseed filters. I bet there are some good haze reduction filters out there I don’t know about.I was wondering if I could render this through more than one filter in the Prisma app but I didn’t see any way to do it one one step. I did it the long way around.I used the Hunter filter and saved it, and then opened that photo (above) in the app and ran another filter, Gothic, on it:For comparison, here is the same photo rendered straight through the Gothic filter.It’s subtly different, softer looking. I bet there are some combos that result in just a whiff of kitty, more suggestion that representation.
Mrs and I were feeling well enough to do fried pies today. The dough has been sitting in the fridge, wrapped in plastic, for a few days. Here’s a link to a post I put up ages ago with the recipe for the dough.
I’ve been fiddling with the Snapseed photo editing program today and am having a ball! It’s been a hugely successful app for the iPhone and now Google has bought the company and they provide the app for free for the Android devices they have been pushing. Alas, I had to spring $20 for the desktop Windows version.
