Thanks Dak. I smudged first then used a layer of Fractalius to bring out the fur a bit more.

I cant seem to find an option to change it to use the image settings of the original. Do you know if there is one? Thanks,

Dak
You can, but only before you load an image into DAP (under tools>settings). Only can do this once too. If you want to change the dimensions again, you have to close DAP and reopen it again. I just resize in GIMP (don't want to deal with the process; not sure why Oscar handled sizing like he did, but I'm not a programmer either).

Thanks for the info. Guess I will continue to do it that way also.

Re: Paint my cat?

Love kitty pictures...

Very creative interpretations so far. Well done.

Mine is based on a modified version of Mike Finn's "insta-watercolor" action he wrote many years ago and layers rendered by Impressionist, Paint Engine and Topaz Simplify plugins.

Bird's final revenge

On a mini DAP binge thanks to this cat. lol

Have to make excuses to use this preset when I can. Click here (http://a.imageshack.us/img840/316/na...doublefeat.jpg) for high quality full version; I attached a very low quality crop.

Re: Paint my cat?

Sorry I'm getting in late for this one. I have a passion for cats, and as others have said, "I couldn't resist". Your original photograph was very well done, lots of information, depth, pose...altogether great. I almost hated pushing her pixels around too much. AHB all the way.
