Jak's technique is exactly the same one I used in my posts early this morning (that you said you didn't like Doug LOL)

Maybe Jak explained it better - maybe you just like sunflowers.........

Doug:

I'm restating something you noted a couple posts back for clarification / confirmation:

As one gets closer to the edges, where random pixels start dropping out, part of the desired effect is the "disintegration" (if you will) of the expanded pixels, in that they gradually degrade from perfect squares to "ragged edged" pieces.

BTW: I believe automating this process would be among the correct answers to the question, "How might one use Photoshop 7 scripting?" especially the random pixel selection and obliteration.

Have I ever posted anywhere on this entire forum that I "didn't like" an image?

Honestly, Margaret, I missed seeing yours completely. It does have the progressive pixelization I'm looking for, but Jak's has the digital disintegration thing I was also looking for.

Dan: Blame my poor communications skills. I'm not looking for degraded individual pixels. Rather, I'm looking for an image that is degraded by progressively more severe pixelization until they finally start dropping out and leaving the image itself (not the pixels) ragged. But the individual pixels would still be square and aligned.

Whew! I never thought this would gather so much interest

Doug and Jak, my post was out of line and I apologize.

If I could retract my previous statement and start over, I would say that when I saw Jak's explanation of what she did, I was amazed that I had come up with a solution that was so similar to hers. I greatly admire Jak's work and hope some day to have half the PhotoShop expertise that she has.

Memo to ME: don't post at the end of a long day when you've been running on 2 hours sleep.

Margaret

Jak,
I think yours came closest to what Doug wanted. Of course only Doug has the final say.

Those pixels...

PSD 7 has a filter called mosaic, which does this...

Is it closer?

Best regards

Hi Michael:

Welcome to RetouchPRO.

I think this is right in the ballpark. I believe you (better than anyone so far) has achieved the "image disintegrating look" Doug is looking for (not that that issue has been clarified).

PSD - that's the file suffix for Photoshop. Is Photoshop 7 what you meant or does PSD stand for another application?

Anyway, thanks for joining us and posting an example. Hope to see more of your works.

~DannyR~

Hi DannyRaphael

Yes, you're right. It should have been PhotoShop7.

Great place here!

"Clarified" he says

I think Jak had it closest so far. But there must be an easier way.
