A few of you already ...

...know that recently I've picked back up a quest to a better mosaic technique. Needless to say, I will never get to look as good as the variable size mosaics that you can get with Painter, but here's where I am now. Believe it or not, GIMP has a cool Mosaic plugin and with a few additional things (add grain to grout and bumpmap tiles; some sharpening) you can get a result like this one.

As a side note, check out this link. Wish I had a program that can do this.

Re: Creative challenge 008: Mosaic effects

glad you brought this one back up, lk. i've been working on a filter in filter forge for stained glass and/or mosaics. it's far from perfected, but i've gotten a couple of cool effects off it so far.

these arent really stained glass or mosaic so far but i'm getting closer

Re: Creative challenge 008: Mosaic effects

Hey Craig. This almost looks like those baby puzzles with large and easy pieces that interlock. Cool.

Well, this time, I took Fritillary (Danny gets the credit for using Fritillary earlier; I'm just enhancing it) and combined with Xero's Cubism>Emboss>Natural to get get this effect.

Re: Creative challenge 008: Mosaic effects

thanks, lk. like i say, still working on that filter. and i had a LOT of help from one of the guys (richard bartlett) on the filter forge forum. he made a color extraction filter which i used in my own filter and that allowed me to get this effect.

i like yours too, but what is the fritillary filter? i'm familiar with the xero filters, but not the other. got a link?

chillin, very nice. always liked that effect.

you guys shld post the links to those filters/plugins in the library. i do check submissions most every day, often twice a day. so, it wont take long to have it listed.

Re: Creative challenge 008: Mosaic effects

Yes, from my quest, Xenofex comes the closest to Utopia for its selection of mosaic filters. I like the puzzle too sir Chillin.

Frittillary is a Xero filter too; should have clarified Craig (made some assumptions; lol).

Re: Creative challenge 008: Mosaic effects

mad a new layer filled with white,then duplicated the backgroundso it was above the white layer.then a clouds filter on the white layer. then I did a mosaic filter on the clouds,and then unsharp mask on the clouds ( amount at 245% and radius at 13)then accented edges filter on the clouds,bevel and emboss and texture blending modes. then adjust the clouds layer to about 65%
