Since I read your first post shortly after you made it, it made PERFECT sense to me at the time! (LOL) Must be a latenight thing! Meant to reply then, but got distracted and hit the hay shortly thereafter.

Appreciated both posts, especially the detail in #2!

What a terrific combination of effects. I have often wondered how I might make a practical and artistic use of Extrude. Never even considered combining it with other effects.

I'm truly inspired by this one. A great way to start my weekend!

Thanks to both of you for your efforts & contributions. This is turning into an amazing thread!

Again, so close. The pixelization starting with the kids legs is perfect, and on the right side it is great.

This is not to say I don't like the effect of the flying cubes, I do. Very cool, in fact. It's just more 3D than I had in mind.

Hows this? I used gimp, which has a pixelize filter. I just made diffrent layers every 100 pixels and doubled the strenght of the effect every layer down.

That's the closest yet to the pixelization I had in mind. Now just get the pixels to start fraying and spreading and dropping out, like it's digitally disintegrating.

I want a filter like that for PS

I feel like the blind man describing the woman he once knew

Again, very close. I was looking for something more static, but it's obvious from these entries that the problem is my communications skills and not anyone's artistic expertise.

Heck, I can't even tell myself what I'm looking for here

How about this? Btw, i made the backround pattern myself, about halfway through it i forgot what i was making it for and was wondering what the pomo pic was loaded up for. Btw, i could always remove the backround if thats a little too goofy.

It's actually pretty close, and that binary background is very cool

Well, I couldn't resist playing with this since it seemed like a real puzzle...

I don't think I came up with what you were looking for, but I kind of liked the results so I'm posting it.

"What the hey, y'know...?"

I made a duplicate of the image and then made the duplicate smaller. Then I copied and pasted it to a new layer on the original image, stretching it until it fit using free transform.

I did this several times to make several layers, each one of an increasingly lower resolution, making sure they went from highest on the top to lowest on the bottom.

Then I started cutting away pixels on each layer, using the square marquee tool to choose large chunks of the image, decreasing the size of the cut progressively to get the image gradiated in resolution.

Next, I chose each layer and pixellated it, starting with the lowest resolution layer and giving it the most pixellation, and working my way up progressively to the top (highest resoultion) layer.

I flattened the image and copied the layer. I ran smart blur and set to Screen blending mode. I used the eraser on the layer until I got it blended and smoothed.

I flattened again, and chose a random color with the magic wand. I filled all of that selection with white and then added a gradient mask to the layer.

That's about it as far as I remember...
