Thread: Stately Barn in colored pencil

    Stately Barn in colored pencil

    Though I'd try a little artistic effect on the Stately Barn I posted earlier (http://www.northeastfoto.com/forums/...ad.php?t=12788). Tried a colored pencil effect on it.

    The name is Winston, but please call me Sandy, and never late for dinner.

    Great effect! I love it!
    I have a question for you...or anyone else her on NEF who knows from experience.
    When you use these effects and then you "PRINT" the picture...what kind of resolution does it seem to have?
    I saw a picture changed to "abstract" and printed. I could not tell if the COMPUTER or the CAMERA made the photo look like the resolution/pixels were low/bad.
    Thanks for any insite on this!

    Thanks for the comment. I've always gotten very good results when I've printed them, they look as good if not better than on the computer. Some I've even pushed the size up. I'm using a Canon i9900 printer. Here is a scanned version of the printed (4x6) photo of the barn.

    alot of printing depends on the size of the photo...if you have a 8x10 and try to print it at 16x20 it wont work well, and then theres dpi, if your printers dpi is say 300, but your shot is 72dpi, it wont look right, i try to print at 300 dpi,,, it seems to work best.

    The printed scanned version I did was printed at 160 DPI, just under a 4x6 size. (800x542)
