Description of this image manipulation code.

Image manipulation type creative coding made with the 'Processing'.
It enhances the shadows and saturation of the original image.
This is a revised version of PsychedeliCat.

You can use your own photo. You can hard coding the path of your photo image file or you can give command line parameter like this.
/your_processing_installed_path/processing-java --force --sketch=/your_sketch_path/ --run /your_photo_file_path


The 'Processing' example code.

Please feel free to use this example code, if you like it.
To see other works based on my code is my pleasure. And my honor.

Yes, I know. I don't have to use 'abstract class PshapeElement ' at all...
