Dash Kitten readers know that I am a big fan of filters and their ability to transform a simple image into something magical.
This time I have experimented with the multiple collage format in the Photo Lab app (Apple and Google Play). It is an option I have not explored and I know you will want to see the dazzling results to
Multiple Collage Filter 3D Film Strip
You may recognise some of the images used in the film strip. There are several of Harvey Button and kitty Spot from the cat cafe. if you look carefully, you can see the images repeat although they are so spread out there is an effective rhythm to the display.
This works for any pet too OK? I just happen to be a huge cat fan!

Terracotta Warriors Filter
This filter is quite radical, it has a 3D effect and shows the Terracotta Warriors exhibition we visited recently. I aim to report on them as I took photographs with an iPhone and they came out surprisingly well. You can see individual figures and close-ups within the blue blocks here.
My one thought about this filter is that it will probably work better with brighter images than the ones I chose here.
Bright photographs would be more visible but, this is an experiment and I think it came out pretty well. It is sometimes not easy to see how a filter will turn out especially on your smartphone screen.
Snowflake Collage Filter
This snowflake montage of cat images is really lovely and the frame is really bright. Something like this needs a blog post or a larger smartphone screen to be effective. The images are quite small and there is a lot of detail that risks getting in the way if your pictures aren’t dark enough.
Can you spot Erin, Dusty, and one of the cafe cats? The dark and tuxedo shades show up very well.
Do you have a favourite filter, or filter software you use to impress friends, or display on your blog? Let me know in the comments.
