Selfie a la Deep Dream

Post by Duck » Sat Dec 30, 2017 6:35 am

A previous post by Minnie where she referenced Google's Deep Dream project got me curious about what that was. I did some reading, looked at some awesome images and signed up. Here's my first attempt at using their online image manipulation tool using two very different images (my portrait and stained glass windows at my local library, both posted earlier).

A Deep Dream Duck! Love it! You’ve already figured out more than I did.

I admit to squandering time I should have spent working on playing in Deep Dream but it is addictively entertaining. Give me Deep Dream over Candy Crush any time!

Oh wow, very cool. I missed Minnie's original reference, so will go track that down and see if I can play too :)

I like it very much! Very imaginative! Very cool! An example of how uberkewl some of these tools can be (thinking about Minnie's renderings). The thing is, as discussed, many if not most of us simply cannot achieve anything approaching artistic expression without these tools. We lack the talent, imagination, and most of all the skill. I photograph because I can neither draw nor paint. In that sense the camera is for me a crutch! These astounding new tools permit a level of expression with at least the illusion of competence previously impossible. :yay: Vive l'illusion!

(I prefer to present pictures in albums because I can put them in specific order.)

All the great photographers use cameras! No, really. :|

Cool image !!! To me, it has a steampunk look/feel to it.

I got to get this. As Chuck noted, if you can neither draw nor paint, go techy.

Oddly, Duck, this splintering effect has some quirky, eerie effects; e.g., your ears are at different levels and the eyeglasses sidebars (I am sure they have a real name, but this will do) move in different directions. I feel forced to notice these details, somehow. But I will try it. Matt

Duck, I went to the site and played with an image for fun. Bizarro stuff but fun. Do I understand it correctly; you can't download the app, you have to submit your image to the generator, wait in queue, and then rejoice or cry at the result?

When you have a moment, I need your help posting; I apparently have screwed up my export page and can't get anything to go anywhere. These are the dangers of knowing a little but not enough. Thanks.

Cool image, Duck!
I agree with Dave C. about the suggestion of “steam punk” influence!
I was struck by that the moment I saw the image.
