Gertrudis Info Request

Catherine: thanks to your post I found and investigated Gertrudis, and also found Dogwaffle (and downloaded the Dogwaffle freebie). These programs are tantalizing for what they seem to be able to let you do. Your impressions were really great, and it is good work like yours and others that draws me from image enhancement to image impressions.....but I digress.

My question is: does Gertrudis require or depend on the Dogwaffle "engine" or program to be loaded on one's system? I saw the phrase "standalone" but I am still unclear about what the requirements are and whether Gertrudis PS is sufficient or whether the Pro version adds significant additional functionality.

Can you take a minute (or anyone) and supply a few more words about Gertrudis, which version, other program requirements, etc.

I would really appreciate it.

Thanks,
Ken

Hi, Ken. I'm just getting acquainted w/ Gertrudis Pro. I bought it after Christmas, and each time I open it (which hasn't been often), I like it a little better. I decided to get the stand alone version, and so that's all I know about. I don't have Dogwaffle, but a lot of folks like it. I made my decision to get the Pro version based on the website info. I hope that answers your questions, if not, let me know.

Ms. Janet asked me in a PM about the texture, so I'll just go ahead and answer you here, dear girl. I've also been wanting that Crackle plugin from AutoFX, but I can't make myself turn loose of $50 right now. Anyway, I remembered the Baked Earth filter in an old Xenofex plugin, played with it for a while and got a reasonably acceptable crackle. Maybe with more time I can do better.

Catherine: thanks for sharing the information. I've visited your website and marvel and the work you have done. What software have you been using before you got Gertrudis, if I may ask?

Ken

Interesting interpretation, Craig.

Here! Here! Janet's a great photographer, and one o' these days I'm going to make the trek half a state away and join her for a photograhy outing

Thanks for your encouraging words, Ken. PhotoShop is my homebase. I began using Painter about 6 months ago, and it's fascinating. And I have PaintShop Pro. Some pictures visit all 3 programs, more than once
My favorite tool in PhotoShop is Art History, which is often the beginning of a "brush stroke" type painting. Jeremy Suttons's brushes and Captured Bristle are my fav brushes in Painter, and my most used tool in PSP is Digital Camera Noise Remover.

Tried a b&w sketch just to see how that would work.

Hard even for me to really mess up too badly with nice images like these.

Catherine: you're welcome, and thanks for sharing which programs you use. I am really still in the newbie category (perhaps in sophomore or junior class of newbies ), but still learning lots and lots of basics of..... PSPx and I have PS7 but have been concentrating on PSPx. Along comes this Photo-Based Art Forum along with some of the software mentioned in this thread and others, and I have been hooked; I am simultaneously "trying" the Dogwaffle as well as Deep Paint programs. If I had two more hands, I could get them all running at the same time.

The attached is my first attempt thru Deep Paint, barely reading the Help files. This is a discontinued program (so not a lot of help available), but it also seems to have a lot of controls/features. The attached is literally my first attempt with Deep Paint and I realize that there are even incomplete "spots", but it is really an interesting program, and the result is not half bad.

Ken

PS: are there any Deep Paint users here? If yes, where do you go for help/tips?
