Fly Fishing Into Art!

In every fly fisher there is an artist trying to get out in one form or another.

I have come across an app that will make that a possibility for those of us that could only admire art work of true artists. The app, Tangled FX, allows you to take any digital picture, open it with Tangled FX, and then have fun creating interesting images from your original digital image. 

The app is easy to use, has approximately 16 image presets, and allows you to enhance or reduce the effects with manual overrides.

So look through some of  your images of past trips, fly patterns you have tied, or your favorite scenic, and have fun creating...

Here are some examples....
Fiber effects

Big Thompson River bottom in RMNP in cartoon
Poudre Brown with brush strokes

Tenkara rod with pencil lines

It is a fun app to mess with and is very easy to use. Give it a try and share some pics! Of course you're only limited by your creativity but of course I am partial to fly fishing pictures.
Happy Nymphing!

  5. I am back! Thanks for sharing this neat App. Sure does have some neat effects on pictures. I am afraid that this would be the only way anyone might think I have any Art talent. At my age, it is tough to draw a straight line anymore. Sure appreciate you adding my new link to my blog on your blog roll. Hope to share some quality readers with you.

You and Howard were there since day one and I will always remember and appreciate the support. Of course a link to your blog and I believe birds of a feather fly fish together!
