I saw this herd of pronghorn near Prineville, Oregon last spring. I’ll be showing how I processed this photo three ways with Corel PaintShop Pro 2021.
Prior to trying various effects, I increased the brightness, contrast, fill light, and clarity. Since this photo was taken from a distance, I also adjusted the sharpness.
The first two show the original image and the same picture with a Film and Filters effect. For this image I went to Effects>Film and Filters. I selected Vibrant Foliage from the first pulldown menu and Warming Filter from the second one. The orange filter brought out the pronghorn’s tawny coats. The vibrant foliage filter enhanced blues and greens in this scene.
The next two show the original image and the same picture with a Hot Wax Coating effect. For this image I went to Effects>Artistic Effects>Hot Wax Coating. This effect gives an almost comic book-like effect with enhanced edges. The images appear to be coated in a thin layer of wax.Read more: Pronghorn near Prineville: 1-to-3 Photo Challenge
The last two show the original image and the same picture with an Aged Newspaper effect. For this image I went to Effects>Artistic Effects>Aged Newspaper. You can choose how old you want the picture to look. I chose 50 years. More recent options appear more black and white, while older ones have a more yellowed appearance. This effect slightly blurs the edges to make them resemble images in old newspapers.

Great effects. That first one really makes the colors pop. But I rather like the sepia aged newspaper effect. Like you say the hot wax coating looks like what a lot of programs label as cartoon. The “hot wax coating descriptor actually makes more sense to me.
Thanks for playing along and Happy New Year!
Thank you! Yeah, I like the aged newspaper one too. You can just imagine it being in a local newspaper years ago. Happy New Year to you too!
The best to you in 2022!
To you too, Sandy! I always enjoy your posts. 😀

Beautifully processed! Thank you for showing the before and after.
Thanks, Amy! The slider works well for that challenge.
First, what a great moment to capture! Second, the sepia is the one that gets me.
Thanks, Kathleen! I liked that one too.
