Effect/Function: Colored Grid Effect

Description:

Have you ever visited a medieval Catholic church? Did you see those huge, beautifully colored stained windows? Could you feel the warmth, the peaceful, the blissful sun light rays filtered through the pieces of colored glass and falling inside the magnificent, solemn cathedral? Could you notice the colored grid on the church’s floor?

Or have you ever seen the Pompeii ruins, where archeologists excavated amazingly fresh and beautiful mosaics dating BC?

These works of art are all made in the same way, using the same imagistic technique: colored grid images. If the background is usually horizontal and colorless with mosaic, the drawing’s grid follows the lines of the subject. In the case of the stained glass, clothing pieces, limbs, heads, ornaments, background characters and general background respect another grid rule, that of color pieces of subject/composition.

Easy Photo Effects software offers the possibility to give your photos some of the same colored grid effect. The colored grid effect gives all users the possibility to craft astonishing works of art out of their common digital photos. Load a picture in Easy Photo Effects and then click the “Colored grid” button. The software instantly superposes a grid of transparent, beautifully colored squares.
