I know what you mean. Maybe we need some dip?
Yes, we do, Danny, but you'll have to make it, none of that plastic carton stuff!

Great job, Cathy. Now you've gone and reminded me of another software program that I've got stuck back that I need to go play with!
Steve, it does look like it's woven fabric, very cool.
Both interesting, Ikroll, but I'm partial to the second one because of all those triangles, circles and squares. Made me look twice!

Can't fault you for that... I know what you mean when it comes to experimenting with Impressionist. As a matter of fact I've spent the past hour experimenting with your newly packaged preset (Thanks!) trying to recreate the results you got. I learned quite a few things I didn't know in the process.

So, thanks for the inspiration.

About a year ago, I ran across the Voronai method for doing mosaic renderings, but I didn't have the drive at the time to do anything with it (but was in awe of the results these guys were able to achieve). But now, I can't believe how much superior Impressionist is able to do this. The ability to use the original bitmap to guide the orientation of the tiles is awesome too. Again, I will never see any limits as to how powerful Impressionist is. It's a must have plugin, in my book, if you are going to be serious about photos to illustrated art (my opinion of course). I said this before, but this is one of the few times I can say "thanks Bill" and really mean it (Gates that is; Impressionist was a plugin included in a older version of Frontpage, I believe; not longer available from Microsoft, but can still be acquired and for free. Still can't believe that. Just in case they say no, I do have a ligitimate copy of Office 2000 Premium which came with my Laptop when I was taking computer courses a few years ago, so I'm covered. ).

See comments above Danny, and thanks again for your work in RetouchPro.

We're in complete agreement on the coolness and tremendous capabilities of Impressionist. It amazes me just about every day.

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but I'm 99.8% sure the Impressionist plugin was included with standalone versions of FrontPage 95, 98 and 2000 (and their respective upgrades) as part of a program called Image Composer. To my knowledge Image Composer (and, therefore, Impressionist) was never included with any of the MS Office offerings. I promise not to tell.

danny,

thanks.

and no. that's why this is a little outside of the box. this was created using the Redfield plugins, i.e. craquelure 3d, lattice composer, jama 3d, and seamless workshop. i normally use these for other effects, but was looking around for a specific effect i remembered having/seeing and couldnt find. but it got me playing with various plugins and i noticed that some of the presets on these created some interesting weaves, tiles, and mosaic type things. technically speaking this last one was more of a weave than a mosaic, but it was close enough

Xero Fritillary mosaic plugin

Ran accross the Fritillary plugin from Xero, tonight. It's pretty neat. Here are a couple examples.

Google: Xero plugins
...for the website.

There are many very cool FREE toys (plugins) at this site.

Beautiful, Danny! I love the Xero plugins, and I've got this one but don't recall ever using it.
