If you have ever experimented with Photoshop you won't be surprised that there is an entire ecosystem of third party plug-in add-ons to enhance this already incredibly complex image application. One of the more popular set of enhancements come from a company called Alien Skin Software. This particular picture was manipulated using the Snap-Art/Stylize product from Alien Skin. I added the "M superman logo" just for fun. There is such an endless array of things you can do I continue to blown away with every mouse click. This stuff will keep me busy with Wallpaper Wednesday selections for months.
I have included the original image (from the NY Times) of Brandon Minor diving into the end-zone against Ball State so you have an idea of what I was starting with. Also, let me know what you think ?
