Plug-in, review by in the desert
Sounds like just the opposite of what you'd normally want to do with a photograph. But in certain instances these effects can really enhance a photo's qualities. In the desert has used them many times all the while retaining the original photo's integrity. Here are a few examples:
Maybe you'd just like to turn a nice photo in the desert into a painting. With Simplify it was really easy to do and the outcome was outstanding. I've had many compliments on this print.
Another good use for this plug-in, creating graphics from photographs. Very easy to do and the results can be great. Notice how this effect did away with the different shades of blue in the sky? We used this same plug-in to first enhance the edge details. This program has so many uses and effects, it's something we wouldn't want to be without.
If you try this program "Trial Version" don't hesitate to adjust the sliders on the right, we did for the above image and really brought up the contrast for a better graphic.
Great Plug-in, give it a try HERE
Although this is one of my favorite train photos it is just too busy (junked up) by the buildings and trash laying on the ground. After using the Simplify plug-in it really enhanced the photo and cleaned it up while still maintaining it's integrity. It simplified it!
