Stained Glass

Don't know if anyone cares one way or not, but as I was crusing tonite I found some stuff on glass and got mildly stimulated by the prospect of making something in PSP.
Some of what I was looking at was for real glass, but if it can be done there, it can be done here. There is nothing inherently original about this image, as I read a quick tut and then didn't follow it, much. The frame was designed by F.L. Wright, whom some have no doubt, heard of.
I put the pattern on a layer, selected various shapes, and filled them with some glass samples I had also d/l.
I did some of the shapes in Blade Pro too.
Just thought it is a fun way to express oneself without a
mountain of work.

I like the glass samples. It reminded me of a pic I did a while back that didn't exactly work like I wanted it to, but I could't throw it away. Way too much effort went into it for what I ended up with.

Background was a pic of flowers i took.

I manually drew lines on a new layer, using the ruler and grid, dividing the pic up in equal segments. Selected the lines and then did an inverse. Selected the flower layer and did a copy, then pasted making a new layer. Ran Eye Candy Glass fllter and a beveled edge.

While I still had the selection "ants" I did an inverse again and selected the painted lines layer and hit delete. This let the un-distorted picture show through where the lines were.

Did a glass on the outside edge too. I wanted it to look more like stained glass, and I fiddled with it after saving it and really screwed it all up. This wasn't stained glass, but it is as close as I have come yet without using a plug-in.

I'm enjoying this thread. It got me thinking about converting a photo to look like stained glass. I don't think I accomplished this, but I had fun trying. Original image is here.

I tortured this poor photo so many ways, I have no idea what actually ended up working. I do know I started off by posterizing, applied two different gradient map adjustment layers, and finished off with an inverted radial gradient layer set to 'hard light'. I'm sure there were 30-40 other steps in between.

Doug,

I think you captured the stained glass feel nicely. The only thing it is missing is the heavy lead lines. I really like the richness of the green colors. Nicely done and I am so happy to see you out on the web and actually playing!

I was going for a look of the sun coming through the glass, which would make the leading just a sillouette. Obviously I need to rethink

I have done some stuff with windows in the past using PSP lights, PS has the same thing, using layers and selections and transparency changes it can be done.
The old church in the gallery that I did was done in this way. I think PSPs lites are easier to handle than PSs but that's just me.
