Jeen, depends on the original. Sometimes a plugin works nicely with an image and won't on another. the 2 I did here were done in pure Photoshop, no plugs.

Great work, everyone.

Here's a watercolor and ink.

Lyle, How did you create the seamless texture? Also, I have an Idea for an interesting rendition of the same picture. I am going to try to create a seamless texture of the same pic but would like to use yours if mine doesn't turn out.

Re: Some photos to play with!

Thanks for all the comments. To Gerry and to all. Any image that I render I share for all to use in whatever way they feel fit to do so (just don't claim you got it from me if your result is bad; lol). As far as creating seamless textures, GIMP has several cool plugins and built in features that help create them. I did use Make Seamless but had to do a few other things to reduce ghosting (those steps a little convoluted so my laziness prevents me from sharing; lol). I've done better (other textures done of course) but the result is as is. Hope to see what you will do with it Gerry.

Re: Some photos to play with!

Thanks, Lyle. I have GIMP installed on my Mac but I've never had any luck using it. Is there a book or a site I could go to to find out how to use it?

Here's my picture of the flowers, based on the seamless texture created by Lyle. This was done with CS4 Extended.
