Sis Noona: Below is the original photo. I love what the software did with the kafeeyahs!
If anyone wants to join in on this fun, you don't need fancy software. You don't even have to download anything to your computer. Everything can be done at the site. Go to http://www.dumpr.net/.
The first screen is "select an effect to begin"
Choose "amazing circles"
Then the screens will move you through the process. It is VERY easy. I put the photograph into "amazing cirles" and got Gaza Screams! on the first try! You can try a variety of photographs that you have on your computer. Apparently, it does great things with faces. Also, having good colors and strong contrast in your original photo is also helpful.
You can save the result to your computer.
That's all there is to it.
Try it and post yours to your blogs, create a link back here or otherwise let us know, so we can all celebrate the creative fun!
Of course, if you want to work your result with some other PhotoElement software, you can do that, too!
Another cool "effect" is the ability to make a jigsaw puzzle from your photo. I'm going to try this, Insha Allah. I take photos of my students at Sunday School at the masjid (they are ages 4-7). This age range loves puzzles. Imagine their surprise, Insha Allah, when I bring them puzzles made from their very own photos!
Again, shutter-tip to Sister Marahm for turning me on to this software.
