Five years ago I was playing with mashing up photos and classic art using Photoshop. These days I use the free Paint.NET for my image work. Well, it turns out with a third party plugin you can do the same mash up in Paint.NET.
For this post I used four photos I took in Seattle and mashed them with the colors from a Kinkade painting.
To perform this trick in Paint.NET download the Pyrochild Plugins. I donated the requested $5 and immediately put the Color Match to work.
Select Adjustments > Color Match…
For my first attempt, I loaded a Roy Lichtenstein. Yikes!
For attempt two, I used a painting by Thomas Kinkade. Much better!
