Playing with Pictures

Because I didn't feel like doing any work. I went to this website and played.

Here's my default LJ icon in the style of Botticelli, Mucha, Modigliani, and Manga:



I tried it with a few more pictures.







I suddenly have the urge to make many new LJ icons. Oh, yeah, I only have a free account. Fooie. Anyone want to buy me a paid account? *crickets chirping* I didn't think so .

[Edit: Ooo! Someone bought me two paid months! Thank you, O anonymous benefactor! ]
[Edit2: Squee!! britzkrieg bought me two more paid months! Thanks, sweetie! ]
[Edit3: Omigod! Another wonderful person gifted me with two more paid months! Thank you very, very much, Amy Craighead! ]
[Edit4: Eeee! cantstopthedawn bought me twelve months of addition user icons! I get to have 50 little pictures! Squee! I love you all!! ]
I'm feeling:

That happened to me too. What I did was hit PRTSCN and paste the image into PhotoImpact and saved it that way.

Those are soooo cool! You should definitely get a paid account and use some of them.

Someone bought me two months of paid LJ! I've been busily making icons ever since! Ooo, I hope this doesn't addict me to a paid account. Oh dear.

I've added a couple more months to the anonymous donor's. It's the least I can do to thank you for all your writing help and emotional support over the years!

Alas! I think my firewall is preventing me from generating pictures on this site. Wah!

Foo. Are you sure it's not a Java issue? I had to download the plugin from Java.com. And then when I got it working, I had to PRNTSCRN the resultant images, then paste into PhotoImpact (or whatever graphics program you have) to save the image.

If you can't get that working, email me the picture you want modified and I'll email you back the results!

I'm using PRNTSCRN now, too, and that's working. At first, it wasn't working because I had my "function lock" on. Thanks, tho!

Awesome! I wanna see one of Hobkin. hehe.

I like the one where it makes you look like a guy. So THATS what I would've looked like, if I had been born a boy. Wow.. I would've been a handsome stud ;)

Makes him look right eldritch, doesn't it?

I tried doing it to Doom and he just looked like Doom on acid.

Anyway, I gave you the 50 userpics...I didn't think I'd checked the anonymous gift thing, but...

Those are great! I wish I could get the Java on that site to actually work for me, because I'd love to try more pictures. I had to beg for this icon. ;}

Dang, you make a cute manga woman! I love the first two and the last one. As for the fine art, the first picture looks lovely as Botticelli and Mucha, I think the second Mucha is really good, and the last Botticelli and Mucha are lovely, too. (I see you are using one!)

Have you tried downloading the Java plugin? I needed to do it twice. The first download crashed during the install, but worked the second time. Are you not able to get it to work at all, or can you just not save the picture?
