Original Tulip

The kids have been wanting to learn how to edit their pictures. We use The Gimp, and I really like it. It has been a challenge to learn the different functions, but as I practice, it gets easier.

For their first lesson, we attempted to change photographs to look more like a painting.  They all know the basic idea and had fun playing with different settings to get the picture they wanted.

I experimented with using different techniques for mine. Of all the pictures that I tried, this is my favorite. I won’t use this effect often, but it was fun experimenting with it.
