O.K. -- I'm officially obsessed...

Exchanged the John Lennon challenge image for the other guy, and exchanged the rose for a purplish hued image...

CJ....and we're just learning this filter...Imagine what will happen later on...

I'm trying to take an image and apply strong textures to it, prior to adding it to the mix. Then pick one figure or object, and several other less obvious images. The "directions" say 6 or more images...I say 8-10.

I'm going mostly for colors, rather than dwelling on what the object of the image is. Like right now I'm working on browns and tans with a big red object.

But this one turned out nice.

Well, that is just too COOL!!! Great filter, thanks for letting us know about it!!!!

I am just getting into the whole "photo to art" thing, as I do mostly digital images now. Here's one that's a little different--this uses 5 digital fractals I made (which are abstract to start with) and then applied the polymerge filter to. This is FUN!!!

I can't wait to get home to my photo collection!

Welcome! You won't believe it but I was just looking for new fractal software. I like your webpage...most fractal pieces I see online are really not terribly artistic. Yours are very nicely done.

Amy!

Thanks so much!! *blushing* I love making fractals and spend hours upon hours at it. Now, of course I'm doing this photo manipulation stuff too...I need a 36-hour day to get everything done! LOL

It's funny you were just searching for new fractal software...btw, if you need any links or input, I've used pretty much every type of frac software out there. You can pm me if you'd like...

Inspired by Amy's enthusiasm I attempted this abstract using polymerge along with some other filters, handwork and Hemera objects. There seems to be endless possibilities.

Manju,
Thanks for your compliment! That is actually a fractal (no photomanipulation at all) and the software I used is called Ultrafractal 3 (http://www.ultrafractal.com).

LQQKER,
Love what you did! Nice work!

Donna

Very cool effect! (I'm a cat person myself)

I put some of the ones I've done with this filter online. Look carefully at each one. You'll be surprised what is hiding there. When you merge a dozen or more images, you get a lot of "happy little accidents" (Bob Ross the late TV Painter)
