|Eye Candy for Photographers
First I should be clear that Eye Candy is much more oriented toward graphic design than photography. With that said, some of the Eye Candy filters can do some very cool things to photos. For instance, check out the second Animal Fur image on our Web site. Terence Tay, the creator of Eye Candy 6, made a new video that shows off some filters that have a painterly mode, which can be quite striking when applied to a photo. The photo above is a collage of scenes from Terence's video. The filters that have a painterly mode are Animal Fur, Reptile Skin, Ripples, Squint, Swirl, and Weave and most of them have a Painterly settings category.
How did you do that?
We received a lot of compliments and questions about the Eye Candy Chrome example with the blue iris. Here is a video where I show how I made it. Most of the time is spent giving advice. The actual creation of the image is pretty quick and easy. As with many of the Text & Selection filters, starting with an interesting shape in a layer is the key.
Cameron Davidson Update
Cameron Davidson has some new photos on his site that are really worth a look. I especially love his aerial work in the Chesapeake and Form portfolios. Ordinary terrain can become intricate art when viewed from above. You've seen Cameron's work before if you saw our Photo Bundle ads or Exposure case studies.
