Dreamscope Effects Demo (pt. 1)

I’ve recently taken up creating digital art from photography for this blog.  I use a good number of different image processors, too many to name them all.  For today, I’m going to focus on just one of the processors that can provide a wide variety of filters.  It’s called Dreamscope.

Anyone can try Dreamscope for free.  Just be aware, free users go to the back of the line when waiting for images to be processed.  In all honesty, that pretty much means overnight.  Submit 5 photos on Tuesday afternoon, and the finished product will show up on Wednesday morning.  Slooooow.  For $9.99 a month much quicker results are available.

The size of the free images is more than satisfactory for a lot of purposes.  Once again, paid users will get bigger images with slightly better detail.

There are many dozens of effects.  Far too many for me to always know intuitively which effect would best serve my own needs.  This demo will (hopefully) help familiarize my readers with the powerful effects that can be created with Dreamscope.  At the same time, it will be a reference for my own purposes, a sort of guide to potential effects.

I often use more than one image processor for the “art” I’m currently creating.  However, for this project, I’m simply using 4 images that came across my Tumblr feed in the last few weeks.

In addition to simply providing a demo of the different Dreamscope effects, the four pictures themselves are also somewhat varied in size and subject matter.  I hope this is effective in showing the different filter’s effects on a small variety of subject matter.

      I’m curious to hear about your results. Dreamscope isn’t my favorite image processor, but it’s an interesting one to play with. And, it does give some nice results… 🙂
