Wow... great fun.

I just wrote a Photoshop action to streamline the steps. Click my name above/left and send me an e-mail (not a PM) if you'd like to try it out and give me some feedback.

Trimoon what a selection, they are great, I have been playing around with this most of the day, flowers seem to work best for me, i tried a face ( animal and human ) but it looked quite goulish ! ! ! ! Is your animal a cat ?

Palms

do they remind any one else of the glass paper weights you can get ?

edit: on the third one, i wondered what would happen if you already had a round patterned shape and did this. i took my image from the patterns thread and tried it. changed it a bit, but not that much

Today i have been trying out Danny's action which works great , I did have one mishap (my Fault) but in doing so found out that you can use rectangles which give you oval's, doubling the fun ! ! ! ! ! ! !

thak you Danny

lovely. and fun. who could ask for more

i always find it fun to learn the method and then take it out on my own. i see you've done the same. i tried it a couple other ways also, repeating the same step instead of changing the setting and also in only rotating it 90 degrees instead of 180. try it with triangles

You Guys

Here I was I had my little daily plan and ran into this darn thread. Tripped over it and made my little action and constructed some of these gizmos and I am way behind on my schedule. The good news is that since I'm retired I don't have a schedule.

It worked for me Would it be possible to have a little pause at the end, it goes quite fast and dont get that good a look at the circle ( unless you are pretty nifty with the pause button ) other than that very good

palms,

thanks and glad it worked! i couldnt get it to play. it downloaded ok, but it seems my .avi viewer wont show it. thankfully, i saved it as a .gif also.

as for the speed, yes, i can change it. i wondered about that. however, i've got some other plans for this yet, so i'll probably wait and change the speed when i do some more with this.

one thing about doing this, was that i used meesoft's smart morph. i like that program. simple, easy to use, and does a very nice job. but, it's got its limits. what i was hoping i could do was really show the neck of the guitar curving around like it ends up as. smart morph couldnt handle it that way... too many 'crossed lines'. but, i'll be playing around some more with this, so we'll see.

These Are Fun.
The instructions ask for a square picture but if you start with a rectangle you get “Amazing Ovals”

palms,

not quite what i expected. in fact, i'm a bit surprised. i would have thought it would have been more thoroughly symmetrical. oh well, it's still an interesting piece

Cool stuff.

I really like the effect (gave it a try myself, but will not post). Very easy to do to. Kudos to the one who figured out how to do this.

Pity you arent posting Ikroll, as i have found that the problem with the size is making it big enough

ken,

i love those. very vivid. i like that you can make out, to some extent, what they were originally. but the twisting just takes it to whole new places. i think maybe the ovals do this more than the circles.

lk,

you might not want to show this to your mom. i'm sure there are more flattering images of her and yes, very cool

this one is with a hexagon selection of our parrot, posted by nancy in another thread.

ok, that first one wasnt done on the original parrot picture. this second one was done on the original using a rectangular selection.

I like it Steve.

This Magic Circle thing will catch on. I remember an Escher self portrait where he holds out a globe which shows the reflection of his face. This would be a cool effect for someone to try.

Craig i had been thinking of trying a hexagon, think i will give up on different shapes now and will have to think along the lines of trimoon and Ikroll ( given a chance)
Trimoon absolutely adore that, It is worthy of being printed and framed

palms,

yes, the hex isnt quite as good as the rectangle and square. the circles dont come out as much.

trimoon,

you're definitely taking this to new levels. quite a festival of colors there!

OK; this is real cool Palms; converted mine to a globe. Started my using the AC that I posted originally. Sorry for the artifacts, but I wanted to keep the transparancies so I saved it as PNG (Neuqant for higher quality).

Seeing as how I removed the fractal programs from my PC bcs they were too addictive and I gave up the kaleidoscope groups at Flickr for the same reason ... you KNEW I couldn't stay away from this.

Amazing Circles indeed...

Forgot how fun these are. Thx for shaking the tree, Palms.

Saw the potential and wrote an action under PS CS3 to simplify the steps. Takes about 15 seconds and works on any size image, any PPI.

The action should work with PS7 and later, but I am unable test on a Mac or other versions of PS.

e-mail me if you would like to test the action before I upload for general availability.

Nice one Danny
Have you thought of starting a blog with your actions so that they are all in one place ?

By the way if you want to know how i made the hoops follow the tut for teardrops but when it says to increase the canvas so that the circle is at the bottom, make it so that the circle is in the middle, then remove the solid inner bit

I "think about it" just about every day, but doing something about it is a different story completely! It's definitely on the "do someday" list you.

LK, CJ: you're going to break the FUN METER if you don't watch out!

Seriously, you have done some amazing creations.

Thanks Danny/Palms. Really like your glass paperweights too CJ. I wish I would have paid a little more attention to detail since I noticed I missed one of the links; oh well. here's a sphered result using the tile.

Lyle, love your Interlock !!!! Seamless too - wow!

M-A - your werewolf has been tamed

Palms, Danny -- these are fun, and allow for adding gradients, lines, shapes and colors before running the Polar coord. - never know what we'll get!

Re: Tutorial (link): Amazing circles (Photoshop) -

I like the organic flows of your last couple CJ. Thought I would turn my last effort to what I call a glass whicker. Still wanting to retain the transparancies so here's the link. I attached an 8-bit converted PNG so it will have aliasing issues.

Re: Tutorial (link): Amazing circles (Photoshop) -

Palms, so lovely !! Like the rotating rings also!

I used to do "polar vases", but I never added the perspective and warp moves to make the top look more interesting. Here's my original polar vase from some years ago and one that tries to go along with the tutorial with some fake flowers added with "flower" brushes --didn't have any flowers available.

Cool vases Palms. Still having fun. Figured out a way to create a more realistic glass look. Just providing a link (you all probably getting tired of my renditions anyway; lol).

That is great Lyle, especially how you can "see" through the links, and go on post a image normally for all to see

Re: Tutorial (link): Amazing circles (Photoshop) -

OK Palms. Figured out how to create drunken squares using GIMP's Whirl and Pinch (angle setting set to 0) which is cool (yes; transparent, but this one didn't require 8-bit conversion for compression {i.e., full color}). Also same technique can be used for metallic rings. created the ring and made a smaller brush and stroked the center of the big ring and then erased one point of each of small rings (to give a sense of overlap) and then fed the the result into Mehdi's Kaleidoscope filter for the seamless result. Again thanks a lot for getting me on another binge (now how am I going to break this one? lol).

Also used Simple Diamonds preset for the seamless rotation and added bejewed background for this new try at caged glass. And yes, this texture is seamless too.

Re: Tutorial (link): Amazing circles (Photoshop) -

Like what you did too Craig. Now for the bad news (but hopefully only temporary). I'm currently editorless (i.e., don't have either GIMP or CS2 installed right now since I just upgraded my PC to Win7). I'm experienceing a learning curve now and getting my virtual PC VM of XP up to par. Weird that it defaulted with just 256MBytes of RAM, but I remedied that. I also have to get Virtualbox installed too. Think I will pass on VMPlayer since two VM programs is more then enough for me to work with right this moment. I have a busy weekend too, so might not see too much of me w.r.t. rendering for the next few days (or weeks God forbid of course). until I get my PC up to snuff. I do like the built in monitor calibration tool for Win7 (pretty much what I would have gotten with NVidia's calibration tool).

Only short-term pain Craig. See my post below (includes a screenshot). Only issue I have now is my manual calibration (not happy with it; really need to get a hardware calibrator).
