Pop Art Tutorial using IrfanView
Here is a tutorial for those of you that like to add a little pizazz to your photos. The best thing is that it won’t cost anything if you don’t have PhotoShop or something similar. The software I used for this example is IrfanView. It can be downloaded for no cost at http://www.irfanview.com.
After you have the software downloaded and installed, start IrfanView. Click on Start> All Programs> IrfanView. Then open any photo of your choosing from your computer.
Next, from the menu bar, click on image> effects> effects browser
From there this dialog box will open. Click on solarize> OK. The dialog box will close.
Then, again from the menu bar, click image> color correction and a new dialog box will open.
In this box set the contrast slider to 80, the gamma correction slider to 0.20, and the saturation slider to 100, as the diagram above illustrates.
click on OK.
There you have it, your own pop art photo. Feel free to change the settings to get your own spectacular effects.
