This week's prompt was "comfort."
Click through for larger photos.
I used Photoshop's "Poster Edges" filter for that one. It looks radically different in different sizes -- more and more unrealistic as it gets larger.
"Poster Edges" larger size
In Photoshop's RAW file mode, changed original photo's white balance to "cloudy". I think the warmer tone suggests comfort more than the original photo.
In Photoshop's RAW file mode, changed the "clarity" settings on the above photo. Gives a slight glow and in larger sizes it has a soft graininess.
Used Photoshop's "clarity roughness" filter. Even more graininess.
Used Photoshop's "graphic pen" filter.
So yeah, I can use an $800 program to mimic what Instagram does automatically. :P
