OK, here's the latest verion of the action - plus a "readme" file to help those who aren't familiar with actions. (I sure wasn't until just a few weeks ago!) My sister reports that she is getting a slight error in PS6, but she ignores it and it seems to run just fine. I'll try to figure that out tonight on my mother's computer (she's also running PS6). And I know I still have to come up with a PS5 version - that will have to be tomorrow.

I apologize for all of these versions. I'm pretty much learning as I go - sorry to drag the rest of you through it.

Jeanie

P.S. I'm not really sure which version I attached to this post, so I deleted it. Please see this post for the latest version.

SJM - the *.atn should look like gibberish if you try to look at it in Notepad or some other text editor - it's not a text file. Do you mean it looks like gibberish when you load it into the actions palette? I honestly don't know if an action created in the Windows version of PS works on a Mac. Does anyone else know? If not, you may have to recreate it from the action text file that I've attached. This allows you to view all of the steps, but won't load in the actions palette that I'm aware of.

Looking at what I sent earlier - not even sure I sent the correct version. (I apologize again for making this so difficult and confusing.) So, here is everything again including a text version of the action.

Thanks Jeannie

I just downloaded v.4 and ran it on ps 7.0. It runs smooth as silk. Your new transform feature is really helpful and allows many variations of one picture. I've been firing thru kleidoscopes at a break neck pace looking for "that special one". When I get it I will post it.

In your text notes you mention using "outer glow" and "inner shadow". Are these filters or must you construct these effects.

I am having a good time with this thanks to your efforts.

Thanks again
Jerry

YEAH SJM!!! I'm so glad you finally got it to work! The kaleidescope looks GREAT!

Jerry, I'm glad you like v.4 - thanks for that feedback. The "inner shadow" and "outer glow" are layer styles (Layer->Layer Style), so you'll want to have the kaleidescope layer selected when you apply the styles. (Feel free to try other effects too - I'm playing around with emboss to see if anything interesting comes from that.)

Have fun!

Jeanie

Hey Lisa!

Jeanie's got a thread called Wild Fires over in the Salon you might check out. Her last post said the wind had changed, the fire was moving back on itself and there was a 30% chance of thunderstorms. That was a couple of days ago. Maybe when she wakes up and gets online, she'll post us an update...

Hi Jeannie

After playing with your action, I came up with this kleidescope. I started with a macro picture of a silk flower arrangement and used several layer styles including outer glow and texture and satin (I think). I could picture these matted and framed at an art show at a large size.

Thanks
Jerry

Jerry, that's absolutely beautiful!! Great job! I like how you took the kaleidescope "further" by adding some filters. Very nice effect. Yes, I can definitely see that matted and framed!
