Re: Phalaenopsis

@ John: Thanks for that feedback. Gives me an idea of where to start.

@ Lyle: Thanks for the link. Lots of nice features in GIMP. I tend to play in Paintshop Pro. And I was lucky enough to figure out how to make seamless tiles in it as the attached demonstrates.

You are more than welcome. I learned all here. Before I've joined I didn't even know that photo based art existed

Thank you, Gene, your comment is also much appreciated Might have another go soon

linux box?

Re: Phalaenopsis

Such a great image for play I decided to have another go.I used an action called Matisse and then added a pattern fill layer and a texture.

Thanks

Though I do have Jaunty Jackalopes running on a VM, I only occasionally use GIMP in Linux (mainly to run Texturizer since this plugin is a little buggy in Windows unfortunately). Still using XP, but I did attempt (and still hope) to purchase Win7 Pro for $99 (Tigerdirect still hasn't given me a confirmation; refuse to buy it at any other price). Hopefully, a window of new releases will open a month prior to the official release so that Tigerdirect can honor the order. I know; I know; call me chicken. I still have occasion to run CS2 and CS2 really doesn't like to run native in Linux (I know that WINE can do a lot, but still...).

Re: Phalaenopsis

I read that Microsoft's idea of XP compatibility is to run XP as a Virtual Machine, a Win7 add on$$. The only reason to get Win7 that I can see, is to run Win7 only software upgrades. I'm running XP also and use Parallels VM for Linux, dos or whatever.

Re: Phalaenopsis

Win7 Pro suppose to have the VM XP built in. We shall see. I'm still very reluctant to diss my dependable XP, but the OS is over 7 years old now.

Sorry I've taken so long to reply. RL tends to get in the way every once in a while.

Nice, Grant. Also really appreciate the explanation. Helps us newbies. <smile>

Oh my. My favourite colour!. <grin> Almost looks as if it was done on fabric -- corduroy actually. Nice.
