    1 Megapixel revival!

    For this experiment I trotted out a 1-megapixel Kodak digital camera image from March 1999 and brought it back to life with some artsy. I suppose now it could be timeless.

    Taken at The Mission Inn Riverside Hotel & Spa In Riverside, CA.

    I like the original, nice effort on the artsy however it has a crayon drawing look and is less appealing. I viewed it in Lightbox and from a distance but the renderings/processing are still evident.

    Thanks John. The 1-megapixel images bother me due to the slight digital mush. IMO artsy helps cover that up while offering a reinterpretation.

    Is there another art effect/genre you think would work better? I could give it a try.

    Mike,

    Try graphic pen or if you want to retain color use the pastel but make the paper brighter.

    That's a bit more fluid. Much better.
