Unique Applications

I recently came across an interesting review of Snap Art 3. The article’s unique examples immediately got my attention. I think of using Snap Art on a beautiful shot from a DSLR or point-and-shoot camera. The author, Kay Michael Kuhnlein, has other ideas.

With sound reasoning, Michael suggests using the plug-in on graphic art and other digital artworks like clipart. This is a use of Snap Art that I don’t typically think about, but I’m going to start. The examples Michael provided are awesome.

The demo version is free, if you want to try it for yourself.

    hey jimmy,
    thanks for the heads-up on using clip art with snap art3. is there any way to enlarge a clip art file (small jepg) to get it to print out at say 16×20? (blow up)?, or do i just need to start with a bigger file?

    thanks,

    al x

      Hi Al x,

      I recommend using Blow Up for resizing. Clip art files resize well with Blow Up because graphics are hard-edged. I recommend that you resize the image before using Snap Art. This will make the brush effects as crisp as they can be.

      You can probably get away with much more enlargement than I would recommend for an image. Most of Snap Art’s effects don’t need a lot of detail in the original image to look great.

      I hope this helps!
