Working with the K800i’s Cartoon Effect in Picasa

An earlier post described how Picasa’s Collage feature can be used to merge two or more versions of a picture to make a dreamy effect, the Orton Effect.

This variation of the technique works with a feature of the K800i cameraphone and merges a ‘cartoon effect’ picture with its source or original unprocessed version. In this way a mixture of tone and detail is preserved in the final image.
