Default Just Do It: Box Garden

Now this is the ultimate...thing. If I can figure out a way to market it, I'll become filthy-rich.

edit: I should probably point out that the upper-left and lower-right corners are still there, they're just "white." I'm using the forum's "light" theme and these corners are invisible to me.

Oh my. That is absolutely unique. Please tell how you did it. I can just imagine something like that hanging on a wall.

Heh heh! I used a freebie app called Photoscape, available at:

http://www.photoscape.org/ps/main/index.php

After installing (I'm using Windows XP), go into the Editor and open your picture.

Then choose:

Filter | Make a box | The box that shows on the right side - High

That's it!

That's amazing. Good work. I think I'll download the app and play with it.

Thank you Mugmar, Ordo and Cal.

So far, I think this is the coolest trick I've found using Photoscape, but I don't have much experience with photo editing software. And I just found this effect by fooling around and trying to find something interesting to post to this forum.

BTW, I don't think Photoscape has any real "help" or guides.

Mike
