 Caturday Art




psychedelicDid I do too much this week? You all know I have a tendency to go a bit overboard. Here’s the original photo. I chose it because of the daylily fronds. I thought they would add some interest to whatever I created.

For the psychedelic art piece I bumped up the saturation in Picasa. With PiZap I added “Klinker” from the Classic filters and layered three borders. The final frame was added in Picasa.

If you read my post from a couple of days ago, Mom is Pulling Her Hair Out, you know I was having trouble using PiZap after updating the operating system on my Mac. I could create whatever I wanted, but I could not save it. I still cannot save to my computer, but I can save to PiZap. Then I can e-mail what I have created to myself. It’s a few more steps, but worth it to be able to continue using this app.

That’s mighty fine psychedelic artwork in beautiful colours 🙂
Computers can be very annoying after an update. They really can give you a hard time. Glad you could fixed it somehow anyway 🙂 Pawkisses 🙂 <3

I have a MAC too. But mom hasn’t tried that APP and now for sure she won’t. She’s pitiful enough with any app. xo

Oh I love these effects……….I too think Pizap is fabulous – sorry you can’t save to your computer though – at least you figured a “way around” which lets you keep using it!

Hugs, Sammy

Those extra steps were worth it! But I do hope you figure out a way to make PiZap work with the update. I have my Sunday Selfie already done and scheduled!
