Thanks for giving me an excuse Craig.

This is sort of a fractal program, but gives really ethereal results. The first is the original, the second after using the PSP8 rotating mirror.

Original full size at http://bigbluebird.com/apooriginal.jpg
<orrored at http://bigbluebird.com/apophythislarge.jpg

Program is Apophysis 2.0. You'd have to Google it to find it. Freebie.

That's cool Amy.

Looks like the classic Butterfly model (use to be very big into fractals in the '80s; still enjoy the art out of the chaos thats at its core).

Well Craig you've hit on another addictive subject. Love kaleidoscopes since my dad gave me one when I was 3 or 4 years old.

I am not sure up to how many files can be uploaded in one post so will post two here and two more in a subsequent one.

I made them in Ulead PhotoImpact v.6 and used the kaleidoscope filter (I am so clever ) The original is a screen shot of the Alchemy visual of Windows Media Player.

See you in the next post

This is the last installment, the original is an image downloaded from Morguefile or ElDorado can't quite remember and the effect is like the previous one the Kaleidoscope filter of Ulead Photo Impact V.6.

Hope you like them !

Regards and thank you for reviving this thread !

I started out by using one of the Simple filters called Top Left Mirror, then used Redfield.

Some more stitching fun.

I used a GIMP kaleidoscope filter (only runs in GIMP 1.2x unfortunately) and created the kaleidoscope. I then used the Stitch preset for Impressionist and cut out the result and placed on a canvas texture. I added the outline stitch by using vector means (cheated I did). The outline was then fed into GIMP's bumpmap filter to give it some dimensionality equivalent to the other threads (close enough anyway). I couldn't post the complete rendering here (even the crop had to be saved at 30% quality; still looks surprisingly good. The following link is nearly a megabyte, so just be aware of that (saved at 80% quality to keep withing ImageShack's requirements).

I'm sorry Palms, but, like the Lawnmower Man (and until recently that was all I was for my parents; ), I only deal in virtual realities.
