I was wondering if the effect in the image I am displaying here is hard to do. It kinda gives the photo the effect of being on some kind of big screen, jumbotron or something like that. I like the effect.

I just thought there might be a program/plug-in out there to accomplish this.

Thank you

DAVID

Image Editing Programs I use include:

Ulead Photo Impact
Irfanview
PhotoFiltre

Best bet is to use PhotoImpact. But to get the effect I am sure there is a plug-in that will to that. You may want to do it on the picture or a layer that you add to the picture.
You also got the Mask in PI that do things.

I did this with the Mask in PI and used P23 and P24.

Guess you could also make your own mask. Then just paint the line black and then fade it or use a overlay.
I could of painted the lines in this image also or made them 3D etc.

Here is the same P24 that I made a copy of and flipped the one and then painted each block. Use the aways layer setting and then adjust how much the layer shows up.

Thanks Hewee.... I really didn't think it would be as simple as finding an option on some photo editing software and choosing an option such as APPLY JUMBOTRON EFFECT... lol

You're much more advanced than I am in Photo Editing... I will, however, take your suggestions and play around with it .... although the results will not be guaranteed. lol

Thanks again

DAVID :)

Your welcome, and yes play around with PI because it does a lot and I am always learning new things in it. Then on using the mask you can overlay it but make it smaller or larger.
I just got the http://www.redfieldplugins.com/Downloads.htm plugins again.
Used to be able to download what ever ones you want but now the RedfieldPlugins.exe 9 filters package is one download that has the free and demo. But when you install it you can check the one's you want to install. They are really great effects so try them out.

hmmm....the image displays attributes similar to....halftone.... also known as the
moire' effect used in e.g. newspaper printing.

Perhaps investigation with this in mind may be helpful also.

Paint shop pro has an artistic effect called hafltone that I think looks similar. In photoshop elements it's called color halftone.

OK.... How's this. What I did was have two seperate images, one of a sun and the other of a grid or screen.

I then used a image program called 2 pic.... which has all kinds of image merging options etc... You can adjust how much bias goes to either picture.

I know this is probably kinda lame.... but here goes.

You're reviews are welcome.... lol

Thank You

DAVID

PS: So... If your JUMBOTRON had an image like this.... would you be happy. Personally.... I wouldn't..... But hey.... I'm just learning.... lol

I wouldn't be happy if my jumbo tron looked like that I would want my money back, ha ha. You came up with a clever solution to do what you want.

How's this? I did this in about 2 minutes, using MS Word, Paintbrush, and Novadeveopment Photo Explosion.
