I like to fiddle around with GIMP sometimes, but I’m terrible at getting new filters and things downloaded for it. I’v tried to go through a tutorial that explained how to do it, but about three steps in I get so confused I have no idea what was happening. So I looked online to see if I could find a site where I could monkey about with photographs. I found this site called Pixenate that works pretty good for what I wanted to do, and I made a faux-Lomo photo of Firefly.

Original photo.

All Lomo-fied up!


Basically I used a sophisticated program to replicate to effect of taking a photo with a cheap film camera. Ah, technology.
