Here's an old, archived discussion on PhotoshopTechniques.com

http://www.photoshoptechniques.com/s...ay-in-the-wind

The image links are mostly broken, so there's only one example near the bottom of the thread. However, there are two links that are relevant:

http://tech-slop.serveit.org/considerations/index.shtml (there are several pieces to this one - check the Table of Contents on the left side)

http://www.thegoldenmean.com/technique/displace9.html

The first link will start to wrinkle your brain after a while, so it will be important to pay attention and work alongside the articles. Note that some pages have multiple parts, so check the lower right corner for continuations.

posts number 8 & 14 in this thread by Chris Russ starts to explain the custom filter...which might help you understand the numbers and Displace

The custom filter is the one that I leave for the end...I barely never seen someone use it and I had a play long time ago, typing randomly some digits like in a Sudoku....I definitely put it in my pocket for when I am a genius...
