And thank you all for all those beautiful interpretations.
Never knew a bridge could take on so many forms.

Nice tooling on both.

If you repeat this process on another pic, keep track of your steps. They are definitely worth knowing/sharing.

Is there an easy way to keep track of steps, or is it as always, "the best way is the long way?" Write them down?

Something I picked up a few years back that works for me is naming layers as I create them, e.g., Unsharp Mask (200, 1.0, 0) or Dry Brush (3,5,2). As the image takes shape I duplicate the last layer modified and apply another effect. This way when I look at the layer stack from bottom to top I can see the progression of effects applied. Works great if two months from now I want to see how a given result was achieved.

It takes a little discipline to get into the habit of doing it this way, but it sure is a lifesaver if your memory is as bad as mine is.

Physically writing out (or typing) steps is an option, but is limited by not being able to "tie" a writeup with a given image file unless you're a lot more organized than I am.

Thanks Danny, what a great tip. My memory is even worse, so this would be a good discipline for me.

I thought I'd just jump in with my tip for remembering what I've done in PSCS.

I have the Word Notepad open while I'm working and make notes in that about what I've done and what settings I've used, then when I've finished I copy all the information and paste it into the File Info part of PS. That way the information is always with the image.

Pam, I don't understand what you mean. Maybe you could give a screen shot of where you copy this info?

A: Decolor
B: GradientMap Adj layer (violet to orange)
C: MergeVis(A,B). InkOutlines
D: Copy C. DryBrush. PaintEngine. (55% opacity)
E: MergeVisible (C,D). Xero-BadDream. (70% opacity)
F: MergeVisible(C,D,E). Impressionist-Geometric:ChaoticChrome modified. (HardLight, 54%). [ChaoticChrome looks like a great starting point for abstract interpretations. Time to play...]
G: MergeVis(C,D,F - E turned off). Posterize-8.

Hey, I really like that effect. Thanks for sharing
