Vilassar De Dalt, Barcelona Spain (PressExposure) May 07, 2007 -- PhotoChances is random photographic effects generator. It builds a slideshow with photos in the computer applying to them assorted spectacular photographic effects. The images are displayed with different transitions and panning effects.
In this new version 2.0 the program adds the âLab modeâ where users can capture any image produced by the program, optionally fine tune the effect and save the resulting image at its native resolution. The captured files contain the ârecipeâ used to build the effect so that effect can be easily applied to any other images, as simply as dragging the images to the programâs icon or window.
As the slideshow generates different effects each time and each image is shown with two of them displayed in a smooth transition, the program is capable of generating a large amount of effects that can be captured and stored for later use on any photograph.
Novice and experienced photographers enjoy it as it provides a galore of quality effects from classical photographic treatment to artistic interpretations without any need of complicated software and it brings new ideas, renditions and useable processing.
Developed by Juan Trujillo, a software engineer and amateur photographer located in Barcelona, Spain, the project began as a series of software experiments projecting digital photographs into virtual 3D spaces (surfaces on the screen simulating being in a three dimension space). The project moved to investigating and experimenting with transformations based on the properties and attributes of the numbers that make up digital images.
Going on, loads of possibilities emerged and a fascinating idea started to take shape, "random (pseudo)art" applied to photographs. Here the artist is the viewer who discovers aspects and qualities in the results that wouldn't be perceived otherwise. Merge this with actual photographs made by humans with intention and meaning, with many traits both conscious and unconsciously and some surprises start to happen. One finds new interpretations of the images, aesthetical possibilities, unseen aspects, or simple pleasure or fun viewing. Particularly when the viewer is also the author of the image.
