Chuck:

I have yet to cross the "mouse to tablet" bridge. Is this your first tablet? (In my case: no talent, no point.)

I understand after the initial learning curve most folks would never consider turning back.

Keep posting your experiments so we can see how you're progressing.

Very nice, Chuck. I love the neutral textured backgrounds you've been using lately.

Yep, I'm with Phyllis (again) on her assessment... A very effective subject / background combination.

Rose on a rug

My mom has a little oval rug with leaves and flowers carved into the nap, and this reminds me of that.

I started with the "other-->custom" filter and set it to make sharp, bright edges and inverted colors, then faded it to luminosity and ran it again, etc. till it turned into a more diffused pixel pattern. Then I put the original on a layer above it set to overlay mode, textured it with render-->lighting set to 100 to give it depth. A bit of blending and color adjustment in there somewhere too.

Chuck, you say it needed some brightness/contrast to look like a rug on your monitor? Do you use Windows? I have had this problem all along...pics look perfect on my Mac (ViewSonic monitor) but look a lot darker on most Windows machines.

In my Photoshop "Proof Set Up" menu I now select Windows RGB when making pics for the web, since most folks do use Windows and, judging both from the darker-looking proof setting and from what folks (like you and others here) have said, there is a real difference in how we see the same picture. Evidently the proof setting does not compensate sufficiently on some pics, especially those that are darker to begin with, like this one.

I think I have finally found a way to overcome this problem once and for all, however. I want all of you to go out tomorrow and buy Macs with ViewSonic monitors. You will love the convenience of not fighting with Gates garbage, and you will see a much brighter picture too!

You should take this problem to the forum here that deals with such problems. Must be very annoying! Hope someone can suggest a remedy.

Since Photoshop seems to be the problem here, have you tried adjusting the gamma on the monitor controls instead of through Photoshop? Or perhaps reloading Photoshop would do the trick, since it is supposed to be able to talk to your monitor without getting nasty, so it may be messed up.
