It’s official, folks, the Momz had too much time on her hands this weekend! This is what happens when she has a free weekend, and decides to take what was originally a crappy photo of me in the window, and try to turn it into something artsy.
She says I should tell you how she did the effects. First, she used her camera photo software and added the “mirror” effect to make a two headed me (why?). Then she had to find a way to hide the fact that the photo was out of focus. She tried several different effects and ended up adding the “emboss” effect. That was the end of anything good in that software, so she took the photo to PicMonkey in hopes of adding some color back to it.
I think she got a little carried away adding the “radiance” effect which also gave her color options and she went with a red. Then, because she actually had the crazy idea that this might look good framed on the wall, she added a frame to see how it would look.
I think we need to keep Momz busier. I mean, really, would you hang this on your wall? I’m afraid she’s really going to.

That is a nice photo effect. I always like when other people do them, but I can never get them to look good myself.
It does take a lot of trial and error, with much use of the “undo” or “cancel” buttons! 🙂

Honestly I can’t even tell that was a picture of a cat in the window. That could be good or bad not sure. Love Dolly
Oh Sam, we pet parents have so much fun fiddling with our pictures. Just think, at least she’s not making you pose, or trying different colors in your fur. 😉
Don’t give her any new ideas, please! MOL
Ann Staub says
How weird! Not in a bad way, I just never would have thought it was a photo first. Good thing the Momz explained how she did this one!

Maybe your mom needs to play with you more…and not with the photo software, Sam. That would keep her busy. Though that is an interesting picture of you.
Well, that is a good idea, but I have to admit, playing with me doesn’t take up a lot of time. I like to play for about two minutes before I get bored with it. 🙂

That’s so cool!
I like the 3-D effect of it. It looks stamped.
Actually it is close to museum quality
The Momz loves you, jan. 🙂

I think it is very cool! It makes you twice as important too! MOL!
So true! How could two of me be bad?
Ellen Pilch says
I do think it is wall worthy 🙂
Oh boy, Momz is scheming now! Thanks a lot, Ellen! 🙂

Actually, I think it’s pretty cool! But on my phone and iPad screens it looks black/dark grey, not red. As for your Momz having too much time on her hands, I say GOOD FOR HER! After the craziness of the last few weeks, she deserves some time to relax.
The red is pretty subtle, so it’s not surprising it doesn’t really show through everywhere. You are right – Momz needed some relaxing time, to just do some fun stuff like photo editing. We’ll give her that. 🙂
Brian Frum says
That looks pretty cool to us, but my Dad was hoping it was a chocolate bar MOL!
Hmmm….maybe we could sell chocolate bars with me on them? Momz needs another job.
Love & purrs, Sam

Great photo!! Funny, I just did a two headed photo for this coming Wednesday. Have a great Sunday.
Oooh….we can’t wait to see yours! Hope you had a great Sunday too!
At first look, we thought it was something she created using wood and paint. Interesting!
If only Momz was that creative…..now that might look cool on the wall. 🙂
