Tony:

Positively brilliant! Smart Blur / Edge Only + Invert + a little Gaussian Blur + Levels = pretty tight edges. Very, very cool. Thanks for turnin' that lightbulb on!

Art:

Didn't occur to me that Elements and PS have nearly identical filter sets.

The results you get between PI 8 and PSE 2 are great. I'd say you're getting along just fine w/o PS.

Phil:

I used Mike's Oil Paint .atn (I believe you told me you got that one from him) + a free one from his site (Amateur Panter).

Mike just posted another free one today ("comic") that's quite good.

For a download link check out this DPReview post.

Everyone who's new to PS7:

If you haven't checked out this folder, there's a LOT of neat stuff in it:

C:\Program Files\Adobe\Photoshop 7.0\Presets

For example point your Texturizer filter to \Presets\Textures and you'll find some additional texture files, including the "Rusted Flakes" one mentioned above.

Chuck.. The woodcut effect is good.. I like the way it looks and the color. It reminds me of a friend who paints just like this.

Frank .. That’s so cool looking! Nice color

Danny.. Yours has such a rich look to it. I can feel the texturing.
How's the watercolor tutorial coming? That’s a good question, and Ill get back to you on that.

Arthill.. The dark background is a good idea, it makes lotus glow like fire.

Angue.. To me Yours has a look of reflecting water

Phyllis.. You don’t have to compete your in a class all your own, First Class.

Chuck, what a great sketch! I like the simplicity, the texture, and the background color.

Frank, I love the metallic look...very nice.

Phili, the program I used is Photoshop 7, but the kaleidoscope filter is from KPT3. You still have two days to get FOUR different KPT packages plus Techtures plus that lame Dreamsuites2 for 1/4 the cost...only $199 thru andromeda.com...but the offer expires on 11/15/02.

Phyllis (who doesn't want to be the only one with a digital kaleidoscope!)

Phyllis, There was an entire thread on kaleidoscopes a while back (before you joined us, I think.) I even wrote a Photoshop actions to create kaleidoscopes with 6, 8, 10 or 12 segments from an image. (I added the actions to the Action thread starting here.) From what I have tried of the KPT3 swirl filter, I think my action gives you a little more visual control over exactly what part of the photo is used to create the kaleidoscope. But, I admit that I haven't played much with the KPT3 filter, so perhaps I'm missing something.

Just didn't want you to think that no one else has tried the kaleidoscopes. (In fact, there were a few of us obsessed with them a few months ago! )

Chuck just fantastic. I like the texture totally different.

Omeyas, the coloration is great, what do they say about great minds Ha Ha. WE had the same idea.

CJ and Phyliss, we said what about real flowers, some really great entriies.

Phyllis,
This is all your fault! I decided to play around with my kaleidoscope action and took it a step further by applying some filters. As usual, I had no idea where I was going with it until I "arrived".

Steps:
1. Applied the kaleidoscope_12 action.
2. Filled in the background layer with an appropriate color and added texture.
3. Applied a curves adjustment to make the flower "pop" a bit more.
4. Duplicated the kaleidoscope layer and applied the Paint Engine "Curve brush" filter.
5. Duplicated that layer and applied the glowing edges filter; changed the blending mode to luminosity.
6. Merged visible kaleidoscope layers to a new layer (without the background layer). Applied a slight curves adjustment to brighten the yellow tones. Added both a outer and inner glow.
