The Warholizer Your picture. Warholed.

Shouldn't that be "warholled"? Because I really don't want to be war-holed. Ouch.

Still, this is one of the web's most valuable graphic resources.

(I'm not uploading a photos.)

But the images I get for Warholizer 2 on Flickr look clumsy - more bad Photoshop than Warhol. Warhol's images are not that sterile and flat. Apple's Photobooth has a PopArt filter that makes more Warhol-like images.

I think a lot depends on the picture you choose to upload. The simpler the better...I really enjoyed how a couple of mine turned out.

This is perfect. I'm teaching today and was describing how some image formats can oversimplify an original, using Warhol's portraits as an example. I wasn't sure if anyone in the class even knew who Warhol was, but now I can demonstrate with one of our course files and this app.

That that link up there will expire in five minutes did not occur to me at the time. Hrm. And it's not really heh enough to justify porting it elsewhere.

I disagree. I saw it in time and heh'd plenty.

That sounds dirty.

Your lunch. Warholized.

I found another online Warhol-izer that's a bit more complex. Here's a really nice exploration of what this "Warhol" style really consists of and thus how it can be achieved in Photoshop. This is a simpler but nice Photoshop Warhol tutorial--and another, and another, and another, and a sorta of shitty one for the GIMP. Wheee!! Tons more at del.icio.us.

Nice, youarenothere. Re-hehed via that first link.

Weird, I figured getting Warholed would involve you getting shot by a S.C.U.M. feminist.

This is probably better.

I remember seeing the Mangy Guavas open for The Sierpinski Trio at the Factory, back in the day. But they were too avant-garde, even for that crowd. Their opus, "Britain's Sea Coast", went on for fourteen hours and involved the guitarist picking a string, taking the third harmonic, taking the third harmonic of that, and on and on and on until nobody could hear them any more.

'"and on and on and on" would be a good name for a band' would be a good name for a band.

Your processed image will be available for about 5 minutes before it is automatically deleted.

so much for your 15 minutes of fame ....
