PRISMA is a free ingenious image processing application that really goes off the beaten and beaten track and softs that mistreat images more than they treat them! It will allow you to transform your photos into "comic boxes" to which only the dialogues will have to be added!
PRISMA is a new breath, a bold project and surprising results!
This application is available free of charge on ANDROID platforms (so tablets and phones) as well as on IOS (ipad and iphones...). You can install it on your terminals and use it at will because it is a free application: it is possible to upgrade to an even more elaborate version and access the HQ by paying a small user fee....
Perhaps start by taking a 30-second tour of the prisma site... to see the richness and variety of treatments available... And then, if you want to install it on your tablet or phone....
Then go to Google-PlayStore or the App-store of your IOS device and load the PRISMA application.
Installation is trouble-free and the application is immediately ready to work...
You will work with a photo from your database or even a photo that you will take directly from Prisma...
For this page, I took a picture of "Chloé apainter artist to explore various filters offered by PRISMA.
In other words, the results have nothing to do with the pixilated soup we are served so often!
This is how the phone screen looks like:
I really like the image of the middle right... I got it with the GOTHIC filter !
You can scroll through the filters with a simple movement: all you have to do is touch one of the filters offered to you: "Green Story" for example (which will give you a simplified green and pink drawing...
I have worked and tried all the filters... You can even upload new ones on the application's website.... Here are some results:
But the most interesting thing is to directly process a complete page of your comic book (see this page). Get a jpeg of the page and send it directly to PRISMA... You have a good way to create a comic book without knowing how to draw, only with photos!
With the ComicLife software... start to build the "Nabilla" page by choosing the style of the page (position of the boxes) then adding the desired photos....
When this setup is complete, export your page in jpeg format in COMIC LIFE: File>Export>Export>Export to image format.
Now process this entire jpeg with the PRISMA application: it requires a little gymnastics and you have to go back to the phone or the tablet (PRISMA does not have a PC application!).
Open a new COMIC LIFE page that is blank and unstyled. Suddenly place your image that you will stretch so that it fills the page!
All that remains is to place the bubbles and text boxes.... And your page will be finished!
IMAGE PROCESSOR (Photoshop)
You can easily do without ComicLife or another software specialized in comic page editing.... You can perfectly manage with image processing software: PhotoShop, CorelDraw, or other...
In this case, the work is the same: you start by creating a blank page on which you will place your photos, resizing them one by one.
When all the photos are in place, save the page in .jpg format before sending it to Prisma for processing Photo to Comic.
Then return to your image processing program to add the bubbles and texts on the page you cartoonized !
Everyone has the right to make mistakes! The most important thing is to learn from them and not to commit them again!!!
In this example, I was wrong to put the bubbles and texts... It is better to work only with the photos and install the dialog bubbles once the operation is completed.
Here are the results with different filters
The page above has been worked with the "Green Story" filter while the one below has been filtered with the "Marcus D" filter
The only small problem... the texts may in the end lack clarity and finesse... However, they remain highly readable.
You can even get interesting black and white effects, like this "Light Summer Read" filter!
It's up to you!
