i like that too, palms

and yes, someone shld make an image file format that saves your workflow so that you could just post the image and the workflow would be in the exif data or something. or at least be able to save the work history as an attachment to the file or something.

Better late than never...

Duplicated the original 3 times and ran HSL on two of them to change two to different colors.

On a separate layer (below the duplicates) I generated a cube (Filter->Render->3D Transform) and then using Free Transform "mapped" the duplicates to the cube.

Filled the 3D cube with black, lowered opacity and did a gausian blur and repositioned for a shadow. Grouped the cube drop shadow with the three color versions of the flower.

For the background I made another copy of the original and reduced with Free Transform then did a series of copy, flip, merge to make and position the hibiscus background.

New layer with pink background then a snapshot to set the history point. Painted the flipped flowers back with a 20% Starburst brush. Texturized this layer.

dee dee,

very cool. not only does the cube itself give depth over the background, but each flower has depth on each face of the cube. brilliant

Adobe has done just that. PhotoShop CS2 (possibly earlier versions?) in General preferences you can opt to save a text log which can then be read/copy-pasted elsewhere.

Following is a text log of a PS file that I added Texture to...

Without Make Visible
Texturizer

Effect: Texturizer
