That is just awesome. Brilliant "play" if you ask me!

That's the way life should always be!

This thread is really cool! I can't wait to try out this action. I have really enjoyed seeing everyone's work on here!

Excuse me, ma'am - take your hands off the keyboard and step away from the computer, you have gone too far this time!

WOW - that is SO COOL Jak!

Hey - can you do me a favor? What is the dpi of your resulting kaleidescope? I think I'm going crazy. I save the eighths.gif file as 8" 300dpi and when I open it in PS7 again, it's 33.33" 72dpi. Argh! I was just about to post the action for all versions of PS when I noticed this slight glitch. If this is how GIF behaves (though I've never noticed it before - perhaps someone can clue me in as to why it's doing this?), then I have to add a step to the action to change the resulting file size back to 8" 300dpi.

Mine does the same thing, but I wouldn't worry about it.

If you go to resize and turn off resample, you can change the res back and forth between 72 and 300 and you'll see what I mean. It's just 2 different ways of saying exactly the same thing.


8 x 300 = 2400 pixels

33.33 x 72 = 2399.76 pixels

It's all about the total number of pixels....

i just love all the beautiful kalidescopes that have been created and displayed here. now i'm curious how i might change the 8 slices into 6, or 12.

would it be as simple as creating a new template and adding more steps. how would i begin?

Jak,
I'm aware the total number of pixels is the same, but since I say in the "intro" that it creates an 8" 300dpi kaleidescope, if someone happens not to check the size and just goes to print it, they will be disappointed (to say the least.) (Having been a software developer for a number of years, I can guarantee this.) So, I'll just add a step at the end of the action that ensures the dpi is 300 and that will produce an 8" printed image.

SJM,
I still have a dream of creating a kaleidescope with 10 and 12 slices. I hadn't thought of 6, but that would work too. The problem with the different PS versions has delayed me a bit though. I've already got the templates created for 10 and 12.

In general, yes. It would be as simple as creating a new template and adding new steps. But it would probably be easiest if the whole action is recorded from scratch, because the rotation of the different sized segments will be dependent on their size - so you wouldn't be able to use the rotations/flips of the current action.

If you want to try making an action - or if you just want a copy of the templates I've already done - feel free to e-mail me.

Jeanie

I agree with CJ Jak. Love the dream catcher. I've been struggling with that action to make some of my own but for some reason it doesn't work smoothly for me as it does for you all. After playing around with it, I have to do several of the first steps manually then pick it up from where I transform the image to fit the upper quadrant. After everyone seemed to do so well with it and make such beautiful images, I was feeling like an idiot not being able to generate a thing. Nothing new there I guess.

DJ - please don't feel like an idiot. There's just as much chance that it's the action and not the "driver" that's causing the problem. Just wish I could be sitting right next to you to see what it's doing.

In any case, I have FINALLY created this action for versions PS5 to PS7 and zipped them all together. Perhaps you can try downloading this "new one" (though it may not be much different than the one you have) and see if it works for you.
