For my Manipulated Image Product, I took a picture of an old Chevrolet truck with the bowtie emblem on the front of it that my neighbor has on display by her barn. I took the original photo with my Cannon Rebel T5 DSLR, using the EF-S 18-55mm lens. I then saved the original image and started the manipulation process on my laptop using Corel PaintShop Pro 2018. First I used the “Art Media Effect” to add the pencil sketch look to the image. My next step was to adjust the brightness and contrast to bring out the details in the image. I colored in the bowtie emblem on the front of the truck to match the yellow emblem from the original image. Then I used the “Kaleidoscope Effect” in the software to provide the four reflected views of the front of the truck. My final step in the manipulation process was adjusting the radial rotation in the software to twist the center of the image into what resembles the looks of a butterfly. I saved the image and gave it the catchy name of “Butterfly Bowtie”.
