Did a little poking around...turns out that Poly uses something called Delaunay Triangulation. If you search around for that term, some stuff comes up. This guy (Jonathan Puckey) claims to pretty much own the process, but these guys (createtogether) would disagree - they've created a brush in Illustrator that lets you create something similar. I've not ...

Those look hand drawn. You could try using Photoshop's brush stroke filters (accented edges might the closest), and then mount it on a brown paper background, but it will still be some way off in terms of similarity. Hand drawn images will still be as close as you can get.

From an architectural standpoint try to think of these not as triangles but as surfaces. Surfaces are made up of sides. In this case these just happen to be, mostly though not entirely, triangles. Use the line tool, not the polygon tool. For a quick example here's a rough animation:

Draw a rectangle that covers the whole canvas. Make sure you have "Smart Guides" activated (View->Smart Guides or Ctrl+U) Draw a bunch of black (or any other colour) lines creating your design. The lines can intersect (encouraged) but make sure they touch each other or they touch the border of the rectangle (i.e. the border of the canvas). This is why ...

No, it's not possible for PhotoShop filters to magically create nice artistic illustrations for you.

This effect could also be achieved with the Stamp filter. (Filter>Sketch>Stamp) Though that is of course not to say that it cannot be achieved with the Photocopy filter. It depends what suits the image most. Toggling the Light/Dark Balance as well as the smoothness in this filter may achieve very close to the result you want depending on the source ...

I think you were on the right track with your watermarking option, but you left too much of the original image in tact. Here are two images I tried that Google was unable to find: Checkerboard Reverse image search results Mosaic Reverse image search results Another example Reverse image search results The first image returns a lot of "checkered ...

Both the photography itself and the majority of the processing are straight from the Joel Grimes playbook. You can catch the gist of things in the B&H Event Space video "Building the Dramatic Portrait with Joel Grimes". But to summarize: The subject photography is a three-light setup, with two gridded kickers (one to either side) and a small source ...

I'm not sure what the effects would be in ImageMagick, but I'd start by trying to create the following steps: Increase contrast quite a lot Slightly blur Add a transparent texture for the paper Overlay coffee rings and misc stains (random placement if possible) Overlay a lighter texture to give the mottled effect on the darker areas Sepia tint/filter

Google may use a different system but a large number of such services (tineye included) use perceptual hashes where the overall hash is close enough to be a match, rather than exact. A whitepaper showed up a few years back which detailed the process. I haven't been able to find a link to it, but the basic system relies on a action chain to generate the ...

It appears that you source image is tiled as if a scanner stitched small tiles together. The steps outlined below for Gimp help to reduce these tiles but this will be a lossy process. Image structure Small detail of the original image adjusted for black and white levels with "Colors > Levels.." tool reveals the tiling artifact: Unfortunately the border ...

Generate the lens flare on a separate layer. This way you have full control over the flare size, pozition, color etc.

I think where most of the stained glass tutorials fail is in capturing the irregularities that glass has. Filters work with patterns, and the final result is usually not very realistic. An example of real stained glass: When using filters, the result is usually flat. Glass looks sort of the same in the whole window, they loose the craftsmanship beauty the ...

The real trick here is the source photo: it has been vignetted and selected for suitability. That said, you can provide the user with a way to create an alpha mask in order to isolate the portion they want to feature. The effect allows for finger-painting level accuracy. In Photoshop, you can get the source ready by doing something like the following. ...

To be able to script a user uploaded image to add an effect we may want to have a look at command line scriptable tools rather than a full blown image editing soft. A quite versatile command line processing tools is ImageMagick which also comes with a variety of artistic filters we can combine for impressive effects. Below example was quickly created using ...

If you are really interested in the printing more than what you can see on screen.... Your samples are merely black and white photos printed with a colored ink. Nothing more complex. For print production, you do not always need to actually have a colored image on a monitor. You can simply use black and white and tell the print provider to print it in color. ...

Here are two techniques you can use in Photoshop, commonly used for exactly this kind of situation. They give different results, so pick the one that achieves what you're looking for. A basic thing to keep in mind is that marker strokes (including the texture of the paper than is usually visible) are really just a form of noise. In this type of situation, ...

I would recommend using Adobe Illustrator for this, if you have access to it. Simply Live Trace the image (Object>Live Trace>Tracing Options) and adjust the settings there until it looks the best. I would reduce the number of output colors to match the number of colors in your original image. Once you are done live tracing the image, you may need to convert ...

If you can keep consistent lighting in the photographs, for example, by having the same light point at the table and place the camera somewhere so you know you can always shoot the image in the same conditions, you could record Curves or Levels Action to do this (I would suggest Curves, since you want to have pretty exact results.) Then you could just open ...

There are many ways to create bevels in Inkscape but it really depends on exactly what you're looking for and how much control you need. Here's a great tutorial that shows how to bevel text. You can apply the same principles to other objects too but note that the blur option specified in step 6 is available only with text. If you want something simple ...

Photoshop isn't really meant for this kind of randomness as it is meant for control. But here's a workaround without any scripting: Select the Pencil Tool Go into the brush options Select 'Color Dynamics' Crank up Foreground/Background Jitter, Hue Jitter, Saturation Jitter, and Brightness Jitter Change the background/foreground color so it isn't just ...

Hate to say it.. but you can't. Transformations, other than scale, permanently alter the SO. You can always double-click to open the SO, then drag-drop that layer to the document again and recreate a straight SO. But I realize this doesn't help when having to export many files.

From what I gather the spatter filter will solve your problem. Simply select Filter > Artistic > Spatter and toggle the preferences to where you deem fit. I have an example below of the 'jagged' result that I achieved from doing this. I also added a hint of sandstone texture to mimic that of the cardboard, there are options such as canvas either that you ...

Pixel math is tricky (and a little slow) in Gimp, either using a script (i.e. invoking for each pixel gimp-drawable-set-pixel with Script-Fu or Python-Fu ) or using plug-ins like MathMap. Note that multiplying by a constant could increase the value of the pixels over the maximum range for the image, and after the operation you can have some saturated areas. ...

While I think your examples are hand crafted scratchboard illustrations. If you are looking for something automated and quick, Alpha Plug Ins has the Engraver II plug in which is designed to generate some scratchboard-like appearance.

Just to add on @cockypup Another way to make things easy to apply colour, use the same approach as @cockypup showcased but instead of using the Pathfinder to explode the object to pieces, I would suggest using Live Paint. So once you have drawn the big rectangle and created the lines that cut through. Select All and chose Live Paint under Menu--->Object. ...

The colours are not soft as such, though they are pastels; but the shadows are simply a darker version of the "original", and there are careful use of highlights. Consider the clothes: The outlines are trad cartoon-black. If you removed the shadows and kept the black outlines, you would have old-school-western donald-duck-style cartoon. Really old Donald ...

You can use an online tool like this triangulation tool or this Delaunay triangulations tool with images that you upload.

"I can't figure out how to equalize the first image so it plays perfectly with the second." Thats because you can't. You've lost WAY too much out the windows as they are overexposed in the photo you are trying to fix. The girls shoulder is completely gone in the water reflections, all white pixels - it's a mistake photo. However if you took the picture or ...
