BubbleRand v1.03

BubbleRand

This is just something that started out of playing a bit with the Python Image Library.
Nothing especially original: photo bubbling is around by about 2 years, and probably that too wasn't a new thing.

Anyway, the idea is to start from a photo and a mask, created with the preferred bitmap editor (only red & blue pixels are significant):



and auto generating something like this:



Since the generation of the bubbles is automatic, a number of frames can be created, and then an animated GIF can be assembled with a number of tools:

BWHAHAHA!  :D

It may come handy whenever mixing different photos, and not spending a lot of time doing a proper photo retouching job.
For example, here's a Prius + a truck:



 ;D

The mask was just a straight red line along the mid of the image. 5 seconds job.
It's great to change a face on a photo; just a quick cut & paste, dash of red along the borders, done.
