New Toy

You know how much I love to do abstract2...well Flaming pear has a new filter, called Polymerge. Nothing short of marvelous, IMHO.

You open the filter, select a folder with images in it and voila, you get a beautiful (again IMHO) picture. I'll be playing with this thing all night.

I don't think they realize what can really be done with it!

Here's another one. I just did some drop shadowing with parts of it.

Love your images, Amy!! This filter may be as addictive as kaleidoscopes!

Two different sets of images, and two different looks...

Nice, C.J.

I'm still playing around with the various settings, but I'm in love with this filter...Maybe we can start and abstract wave here!

These two images are results from PolyMerge working on the same group of photos but using different modes for the Merge.

Another set of images -- 4 of them, chosen to add either a strong color hue or a graphic element. Using the Hue setting, and then the Saturation setting, I fiddled a bit with the sliders (preferring low or no simplification or blending with these particular images) and the filter created these two versions. The rose and the guitar strings are identifiable in both versions, although the emphasis is different, and the other two images show off very differently in each (the man's face is not apparent in one version).

Glad you brought this filter to show us, Amy. I can imagine it creating an added element in other works as well as doing a fascinating job as a stand-alone filter.
