Back in 2007, I had some fun using PhotoShop CS to mashup my photos with classic artwork in the post Photo and Classical Artwork Mashup. Since then I have moved away from PhotoShop and over to the free image program Paint.NET. Today I discovered it is just as easy to perform this trick in Paint.NET provided you have the Pyrochild Plugins. I donated the requested $5 and immediately put the Color Match to work.
The Ballard Locks are a block from where I live.
Select Adjustments > Color Match…
For my first attempt, I loaded a Roy Lichtenstein. Yikes!
For attempt two, I used a painting by Thomas Kinkade. Much better!
The Ballard Locks mashed with Thomas Kinkade.
Thanks to Paint.NET and some cool third party plugins, I don’t miss PhotoShop at all.
