ActiveRain Photo Contest 2016 - Who Doesn't Love A Zombie?

By
Home Stager with Sharon Tara Transformations

Anyone who knows me, knows I love Halloween and knows I love playing with photos.

Dick Greenberg  has a photo contest running through the end of the month and I couldn't resist entering this photo in the "Best Use of Filter or Special Effect" category.

 

 

Two years ago I took this picture of my grandson, Jack, wearing a shirt my husband had worn for Halloween. 

Jack loved anything "zombie" so....

I headed over to Ribbet and Jack and I had fun transforming his picture using multiple different Ribbet effects.

 

Here is the original photo:

Sharon, great job using Ribbet. I am getting back to Ribbet. I was using Ipiccy but get frustrated with it at times.

Good morning Sharon,

It definitely has an effect; I'm running the other way.

Make yourself an astonishing day.

Rebecca Gaujot, the Go To Realtor®  I remember the good old days when Ribbet was free. Worth the price of admission, but free was better!

Raymond E. Camp  Jack would be happy to hear he scared you. HaHa!

Ron and Alexandra Seigel  That he is!  A lovable little zombie!

Kathleen Daniels  This week I think it should be "turkey" dinner. HaHa! Thank you!

Joanna Cohlan  Thank you. I use the tools I know...not so good with actual Photoshop or other programs I'm not familiar with.

Dick Greenberg  HaHa! Jack will get a kick out of that when I tell him.  I'm having a hard time deciding on pics for the other categories, but I will be entering more.

That would make a great Halloween card, Sharon! And I think it's wonderful that you two worked together on this. I love what you utilized through Ribbet...absolutely my favorite and I have spent countless hours playing on that site. Do you ever use Zazzle to create cards, calendars, clothing and such? I have gone NUTS on that site. Even have leggings with some of my pictures on them!!

That is some transformation.  Me thinks I should head over to Ribbet and do a little research.  Anything to try and look better

Photshop..... I tried to get a copy through an Adobe employee. He checked the price and told me the cost has shot through the roof. It is paid each year now.

I am glad you got it done.

Congratulations.

Ed Silva  It's an awesome resource. You could have lots of fun there.

Sam Shueh  I've never owned Photoshop....far too expensive and advanced for me. I find I can do whatever I want just fine on Ribbet. Unfortunately Ribbet is no longer completely free. It has basic editing free, but the features I use most often require a subscription. The price is very reasonable.

Robert Vegas Bob Swetz  Thank you!

Hi Sharon: What a fun photo! Someone was just talking to me about zombies..they were looking for a zombie quote which I never heard of and thankfully have never seen a real life zombie until now. :)

Sally K. & David L. Hanson  It's a sickness. I can't help myself. LOL

Janice Hope Zaltman LEED AP  I would think Google could supply plenty of quotes for them. That is where I would look.
