Building the World
Camera App: Cartoonatic
Additional Apps used:
Iris - to crop a 1:1 part from the original 800x600px photo made with Cartoonatic and to resize the new picture to 1936x1936px. Then I used "Comic Scene" in Iris to enhance the comic effect of the picture.
Iris - to open and resize one of my texture files of horse hair that I initially made with the Hipstamatic on Cano Cafenol film, but like I did not want the Cano border I cut this off in Iris and resized the picture to 1936x1936px.
Blender - to blend the texture file with the comic file. Settings: Overlay, 100%, original file loaded left, texture file loaded right.
FilterStorm3 - to create a 25% white border. I prefer FilterStorm for that task because it is really adding the border, not just overlaying part of the picture with it. In this case I wanted to preserve that little detail of a puzzle piece laying on the edge of the picture which would have been lost under any other frame.
A+ Signature - to add my copyright watermark.
This afternoon my daughter was finishing a 3D globe puzzle that I bought her yesterday. For one time she did not protest as I grabbed my iPhone to make some pics so I took my profit out of this to make use of the Cartoonatic app. Sadly the app saves photos only in 800x600px resolution but it's no problem to boost resolution with apps like Iris. All in all it was big fun to make this picture.
