Smartphone Images from the 2021 Ann Arbor Art Fair

The images below are from my new Samsung Galaxy S21 smartphone.

I wanted to test the phone’s built-in editing ability and features for turning photos into painterly style images.

For the first image here, I used an external app that offers different photo painting features. I tried the Pointillism style and then tweaked it from there.

The 2nd image used a water color option. In both cases, I liked the ability in the Samsung editor to blend the painted image with the actual photo. The blending ratio is completely adjustable.

I’m still learning and exploring the many photo and video options in the Galaxy S21. So far I’m really happy with it.

By the way, I’m also using the WordPress mobile app to draft and publish this post.

The Gutenberg mobile block editor works smoothly for building posts like this. So far so good with the mobile WordPress app!

I’m also testing a tiny Bluetooth keyboard for writing. That’s also working great and makes the text input super easy.
