Re: Creative Interpretations - Board Fence

Wow! Many thanks to all...nice comments...all appreciated.

How did I do it...well believe it or not it started out as a watercolor which I did not really like, so I added some Buzz and to bring back a little detail I ran USM on it. That's really about it.

Sometimes you luck out when you can't decide what you want.

Thanks again.

Steve C.

Interesting, Steve. I never thought to run Buzz on a painted layer, but I can see where it would tend to really smooth things out.

You could make money, Craig. The folks that wrote Buzz have apparently gone out of business. A Filter Forge version would be quite popular, I'm sure.

Re: Creative Interpretations - Board Fence

Buzz is a simplifier. It reduces detail in a photo on a sliding scale.

Can't donate a copy, but here is an example of Buzz in action on Swampy's wagon. This is a simple simplification using only one of the many settings.
