Very colorful boquet ya got there, Palms. Thanks for the play.

All Photoshop. Pushed pixels around with Filter>Pixelate>Facet. Painted from a history state, did a little dodge and burn then added a texture map.

Re: Dont look Steve C (flowers)

Well, I just had to post something to let Palms know my heart was in it.

Unfortunately I am still trying to get a decent image using Painter Essentials 4.

This is about as good as I have come up with so far.

Unless you are a "brush and palette" person, this is not much of a program. So unless you are, don't waste your money.

Anyway here it is for what it's worth.

Steve C.

Re: Dont look Steve C (flowers)

These are gorgeous folks. And I don't say this lightly as I'm usually very much a wildflower kind of person.

Re: Dont look Steve C (flowers)

Such a lot of colours, I tried to keep them all.
I second Janet with her comments, except I'm not a wild flower person.

LED sign or LiteBrite simulation.

You decide. lol

Used Impressionist with Metallic Button preset for this one. Also, I used Irfanview (just found out that Impressionist actually works in Irfanview which is cool; pass this info on to those who have not got it to work in their native editor that is other then Photoshop). Added a hint of glow using Xero's Softmood filter.

Re: Dont look Steve C (flowers)

Here is one with just filters: Texturizer: Sandstone/Glass, Chrome, Plastic Wrap. I added an outline layer (Desaturate, Dupe, Invert, Color Dodge, Minimum) at the top for a little more definition.
