After nearly thirty years in Brazil I'm still a Brummy at heart - and, to me, them there are barges.

Thought I'd show off some of the filters I have made in Filter Forge:

1) Chalk / Charcoal;
2) Adaptive Tiling;
3) Painter Strokes;
4) Metal Portrait;
5) Directional Tiling.

Many thanks to all, for the help on my aniso project.

I am sure one of these techniques will give me what I want. Can always expect some good info on this group.

Now to check 'em out.

Steve

Steve...Good luck with your quest for aniso...do let us know what you find...

Ro....Thanks for showing us your Filter Forge filters....I have it but just play with it on my photos...
Love the first one...good definition...
The third one is nice too...reminds me of carpeting or tapestry...
Like the 4th one makes me think of a 50 s look for some reason...
The second and the fifth are not my cup of tea....but in certain cases i would use them...

Aye lad them will always be barges to me too....

Patricia...

Barbara, Steve & Craig i have posted some screen shots of my history and acton palettes also the usm setting with what i thought matched the one used in the action (close as i could get, i did then try it on a different image and had to alter slightly to get the same result!) so that you can see what the effie action is about ( much better way than me trying to explain) hope that it will be of some use to you and that you can get close to the actions as i find it a extremely useful action

Hello there fellow Brummie, which area are you from ? boy have we changed in 30 years , but still eat faggots chips and mushy peas
Funny how we all differ i like the fourth and fifth one of your filters best !

Palms

ps just had a thought that faggots mean something completely different in America than here in the uk, But it will give you something to think about for the weekend ( and no googling )

Hey Lyle
thanks for this idea - I can do metal effect in Gimp without additional filters,
so now I will test this direction.
Warp_sharp, I'm afraid , works very good but very isotropic
Greycstoration - other solution, maybe the best one ?

Thanks Palms, I am going to get to work on some of these ideas. I appreciate all your efforts.

Meantime I may be looking for a used version of PS 8 or CS to supplement PSP. There are just too many good image manip ideas out there for PS.

IT'S DRIVING ME SANE!

Steve

Aha! The term is Narrowboat, but we call 'em Barges - reminds me of one of my favourite passages... "Alice and the White Knight"

barbara, here is the complete breakdown..
1) Duplicate the document;
2) Flatten image (flatten layers to just one "background");
3) Convert mode to RGB (just in case you're in some other mode);
4) Duplicate layer (to a new layer named "Aniso");
5) Unsharp mask (very harsh sharpen with Amount 500%, Radius 1,5, Threshold 3);
6) Anisotropic (first time);
7) Rotate image 90 degrees;
8) Anisotropic (second time);
9) Rotate image back 90 degrees (to original orientation);
10) Selective color (you can use a Levels adjustment here for the blackpoint);
11) Make snapshot.
