Thought this one turned out kind of neat too. It's a hand with a blue light source behind it. Made a cool kaleidescope image.

Yup, this is addicting. Now I will try putting some of the designs through the action and see what comes up.

Wow DJ - I love that one with the shell - very cool pattern! And the "spirograph" one is just too cool!

About the "addiction" - my mother called me up this morning and asked me to help her figure out a problem she was having with the kaleidescope action because she couldn't wait until I got there this evening to fix it!

Well, that sure is a nice compliment to your hard work. You not only pleased your Mother with a fun action but the rest of us are having a blast with them as well.
Hey I did try running them more than once and the patterns are even better than the first. I didn't think that sea shell on sand would be very impressive because of the lack of colors but I was really impressed with it the most I think. It made a beautiful 2nd run also.

Talking

NOT a photo, but it IS a kaleidoscope. For those who have FreeHand this takes about 30 seconds. It is actually a routine that I use to make snowflakes, because in creating these no two will ever be the same.

I exported this and colorized it in Photoshop just for fun. Imagine drawing this with a pencil and then coloring all by hand. HOURS vs. seconds. Amazing.

Okay Jeanie,

I played with the 10-slice action and ran it twice. This is what I got.

DJ,

I really love the ones you did. The hand with the blue background is so striking! And the seashell in the sand created such a lovely pattern!

BK - very cool!!

T - I love that color combination. Did you play around with the hue? How did you get gold leaves? Beautiful!

This was such a fun thread with beautiful samples that I thought I revive it for 2005!

Pure and Unadulterated Fun

I thought I'd help TPaul revive an old thread because the result is breathtaking is every post. My determination has resulted in the most fun I've had playing with photos in a long time.

I have to admit that I bent or downright broke the "rules" for creating a kaleidoscope just to see what I could come up with. While the result was not perfectly symetrical, I think it is still beautiful. That one is the purple iris.

The pink one was created from a Rose of Sharon. The other one (with the original shown) is a Bachelor Button.

I didn't discover the action posted by one of the members until I had already done one or two of these little creations. The action runs very smoothly and is very well done. A couple of others I found elsewhere on the net did not work nearly as well. Kudos to the person on this thread who created the action. It does take a lot of the tedious work out of the creator's hands.
