Fridge Magnet

Due to having an enforced slow-down due to a medical condition, I decided to have a fiddle in PhotoShop to see what I could create. I took a photo of a souvenir from a ‘years ago’ holiday – a fridge magnet (why do we buy them?) and then set about manipulating the scene.

  • The water texture was created within Photoshop using a variety of tools: Noise filter; Blur; Chalk & Charcoal; Blur; Bas Relief; Motion Blur; Gradient Map, etc.
  • The sky was added from a stock collection.
  • The sunburst and light elements were added within Photoshop.

I hope my image of a ship sailing at sunset is fairly convincing 🙂

Try this challenge yourself!

  3. Fridge magnet is the type of souvenir that doesn’t take up space at home as it stay on the fridge. Though in my case, I put them on my boiler, lol. Of course they’re pointless but that’s just the thing. I hope you get better soon!
