The steps Lynda used to generate this effect are about 4 posts below. - DannyR

I used buzzPro and the difference blending mode to acheive this effect.

Cool effect. It makes me think of flowers on ice.

Lynda...

Love that Buzz!

To recap is this what you did?

1. Original layer: Run Buzz
2. Original layer: Duplicate layer (Copy of Original)
3. Copy of Original: Changed blend to Difference?

Did I get that right?

Thanks for sharing...
~Danny~

Danny,

Close, but no cigar. Here is a little tutorial for this effect.


1. Convert image to black and white. You will need good contrast for this effect.
2. Duplicate Background Layer and label it Mono Edges.
3. Run buzz Mono Edges filter.
4. Use Levels to remove all but the edges. (Looks like a sketch)
5. Duplicate Mono Edges layer and label it Spread Black.
6. Run buzz Spread Black filter – I used a setting of 6.
7. Invert Spread Black layer
8. Hide the Black and White background layer & flatten & discard hidden layer.
9. Save Image as Mono Lines.
10. Select/All – Edit/Copy
11. Open original image.
12. Edit/Paste Mono Lines image onto your original image.
13. Use Difference layers blending mode.
14. Flatten and save your new buzzed image.

Hey, I only left out 93% of the essential steps!

Thanks for fleshing this out. For those new to Buzz it will provide a clear-to-read roadmap for experimenting.

Thanks for the steps. A nice effect, easily modifid by using different blending modes and various levels of opacity.

I'm very pleased to have discovered this forum through dpreview, thanks to all for your contributions!

Marlene

Thanks for the warm welcome

Thanks for the warm welcome. I forgot to add the link to my website on my first post. You can get an idea about what sort of work I do, however, I am ever changing.

Thanks again,

Marlene

Marlene,

I love your work. You have some awesome images on your site.

I am not a professional photographer, just a very passionate amateur. All my work is done with a Nikon Coolpix 990 or a Coolpix 5000. My husband gave me my first digital camera 6 years ago and it sparked my love for photography.
