    Default Artsy GIF distortions

    Here is something for you to try..... sort of like Posterizing, except with more control.

    Attached are before and after images plus another GIF example of a frosty old flower head.

    Using Photoshop CS2, I took my rough desert shot and boosted the contrast then did a "Save-for-Web" selecting GIF. I then play with the lossy slider and changing the number of colors. You can also change individual colors by double-clicking the color swatches in the color table. I changed 2 brown colors (on the Yucca and on the mountain) to brighten them up. You can also increase the number of colors then start deleting some out.

    Once saved as a GIF you could reopen it in PS and do another "Save-for-Web" as a JPG for further tweeking. I uploaded the GIF here. The effect may work better on a small image size. Here, I worked off a 732 X 1000 sized file that was pretty rough with high ISO noise

    GIF settings:
    32 colors
    Perceptual Lossy = 39
    no dither

    What do you think?
    I would be interesting to see some of your shots and "distortions".

    have fun, .......... Dave

    I like the smaller image better as it still looks like a photograph.
