Below is my original picture, taken from a cruise ship in Miami Beach, looking back toward the city skyline at sunset. It’s pretty, but quite unremarkable. Once I brought it into Picasa 3.9 and started playing around with some of the new image processing features, I could create an entirely new image, just using the photograph as my starting point!
Here are the steps I went thru to create the final image. Geeks on Tour members can watch the video.
Using the exact same picture but other editing options, I also came up with this image.
See if you can create the same end results! I have uploaded my original picture for you to use. When you’re viewing the picture, you can right-click and download the picture to your computer so that Picasa can edit it.
