Wonderful photos, Janet, and you've inspired some beautiful paintings. I've downloaded them to play with later. I think your words have stirred in all of us the feelings of "shoulda" taken those pictures.

Ping:Craig - Frame

Hey Craig: I am a PSPx user like yourself. I really would like to know how to make the frame you put around the Old Man image (well done btw, as were all in this series). Anyway, can you point me towards a script or suggest some steps (might take more time than you want to devote). Nonetheless, I would appreciate any suggestions or specifics.

Boy, would I like to have that frame recipe.

Thanks,

Ken

I don't mean to leave anyone out in the praise department because everyone has done well. There are a couple that really strike me. Kiska that last one is a masterpiece!!! And NancyJ, WOW!

ken45140,

the 'frame' is not a frame at all, really. i made 3 borders at varying thicknesses. i then made a selection of just the picture itself and not any of the borders. i applied the drop shadow tool and then the chisel tool. and that was pretty much it.

i suppose you could make a script of this but it's almost just as easy to do by hand, with the advantage that you can alter things more easily when it's all in your work history. i tested several frames and border combinations and because psp 10 now allows you to add and remove individual steps in the history, regardless of sequence, this makes creating 'frames' like this very easy.

Craig: got it!! Pretty simple and pretty effective. Scripting one's favorites is a snap also. Thanks for the instruction.

I love the stories you have shared with us about this gentle man, but even more than that, I love that you are a person who is touched by these events and these images. It takes a gentle lady to recognize a gentle man.

One of my favorite aunts lost her ability to remember all but her early life, but she loved to talk to me (even tho she didn't know who I was) and she would sometimes re-tell the same story twice in a row without knowing it -- but she was fun to talk to and enjoyed the conversation, as did I.

Well said, and I agree. Lovely work by all, and lovely inspiration by Janet.

They're all turning out to be masterpieces, ladies & gents!
I intended to do one in Gertrudis, and I ended up doing all 3 there. On the third one, I experimented with a crackle texture, probably overdone, using Xenofex.

Janet, I also posted these (higher res) on PBase and gave you credit, top left. Thanks for a wonderful set of images to play with.
