Oooooo Equill........Would you have the time to change a few frog photos (If I can locate a few simple, non cluttered ones) into the cartoons for me to ditto and set near the frog display I'll be setting up at the upcoming Master gardeners conference?

Pix taken in Prattsville, NY late November. Town was destroyed during tropical storm Irene this summer. Unbelievable damage to the small Catskills town.

I like the way the HDR images turn out.

Sage> it was pretty wild. I was always afraid to touch those buttons since I didn't know what they'd do to my photo but.... that photo was so so bad.... I didn't care. I found out when I use the fun effects that it auto saves my original!!! How cool is that!!! I'd still like to find a free HDR program somewhere I could play with. I totally love the vibrant colors in those photos!!!

Equil, this is the program I use. You can use the trial program as long as you want. I eventually bought it so their name wouldn't appear on the final pic, though you can leave room to crop it out.

I'll do a search after the feasting. Thanks

I like the idea of creating a "coloring book" of native flora and fauna.

I thought your photo wasn't bad, just a bit dark. I *tried* to fix it up a little; this is what I came up with in one program...but I bet I could do better in Photoshop.

The frog photos I thought simple enough for turning into cartoons have been gathered.

I'm going to start adding the photos to show what's available to cartoonize. (Is that even a word?)
Once the choices are made, I'd like to add their proper names previous to production.
