Digital Art Pictures Make Home Decorating Fun And Easy

The age of digital art is here to stay.  The good news is home decorating is easier and more fun than ever. Enjoy these art prints used by enhancing nature photos with photo editing software. See how you can create your own.

Digital art can be purely computer-generated, or taken from another source, such as a scanned photograph, or an image drawn using vector graphics software using a mouse or graphics tablet.

The term is usually reserved for art that has been non-trivially modified by a computer; digitized text data and raw audio and video recordings are not usually considered digital art in themselves, but can be part of a larger project.

But when you put your imagination and your favorite photo editing software together, you will be pleasantly surprised in the results.  Each of the samples on this page were created this way.  

I would love to see some of your creations.  Please feel free to share by using the form at the bottom of this page.  

For now, let's see some examples of ways you can enhance your own creativity.

Digital Art Pictures Using Different Effects

Embossed Photo Effects...

Every photo editing software has some type of artistic selections that vary in application.  Many of them are free.  Some of them can get pretty expensive.

I've tried photoshop which is one of the most popular of purchase photo editing softwares.  Some believe it to be the best.  

I used GIMP to create this example of embossed prints.  It was easy as pick and chose a few levels.  

Canvas Digital Prints

Canvas effect is pretty much the same now as it used to be.  Creating digital art with photo editing software can be as simple as choosing an artistic effect available in almost every photo editing software.

Many artists use a more detailed method called vector art.  My sister shared some of her creations with me.  I will be sharing them with you very soon.

In the mean time why not enjoy some of the free canvas digital prints you'll find on this page.  Simply click on the image above to get there.

Canvas effect is nothing like the real thing though.  Unless you can find canvas sheets to print your edited photos on, they often look just like grainy pictures.

Using Special Effects To Create Digital Art

Black and white prints are easier now too.  Remember when black and white was your only option.  Now it seems black and white is coming back in style.

And with photo editing software you can have the best of both worlds.  I have taken pictures with my camera using the black and white setting producing black and white pictures.

I've taken them in color and turned them to black and white using photo software.  I don't see a big difference.  But it is nice to have the option on your camera just in case you don't have access to a computer to use photo editing software.
