Danny:
I used a suggestion from Patricia, but instead of selection areas and buzzing I copied the picture four times, buzzed each layer to what I wanted. Then I masked in what I wanted.
Thanks Patricia.

Bob, glad you liked the idea!

Here's my take on the windmill. I used the beta version of Jasc's Paint Shop Pro for the first step, running the charcoal script. But then, it was easier to take the image back into Photoshop 7 to finish. I layered the original image on the charcoal sketch, using color blend mode. Merged the layers, and ran impressionist charcoal on the image.

So far, the charcoal script is the only thing I really like better about Paint Shop. I know lots of people have translated Photoshop actions into scripts, anyone know how to do the reverse?

"Welcome Home" Patricia!

What's your take on PSP9? Now that you've tinkered with the beta, is it something you would have purchased?

re: scripts to actions
In theory this should be doable as long as one can (literally) see the PSP script commands. In PSP9 can one apply a script "one command at a time"? That's always helpful when doing cross-program translations like this. Then it's a function of knowing PSP and PS well enough to translate a command in one to the nother. On the other hand as I recall PSP7 (which I don't have installed at the moment) had some effects PS7 doesn't have, so in those cases one would have to "wing it" (get creative) to come up with comparable effects.

How's that for a definite maybe?

Anyway, nice to see your pics this morning.

~Danny~

Manjumena, love your image! The colors are beautiful, and I really like the way the windmill stands out against the sky. Gorgeous.

If you like to get new toys, find someone who's a student or teacher (all three of my kids are one or the other) and look into academic discounts. They often can get your new goodies for half price! But no new goodies for me right now, just playing with the free beta download.

Danny, no, I don't plan on getting PSP 9. Maybe it's just not taking enough time to learn the program, but I don't see much there that I can't do with PS 7 or Painter 8 - can't justify spending the money or the time right now for something that I won't use much.

I'll be hanging around this forum as much as I can, but will be gone a lot - and very busy. I have a trip to Vancouver this month, then to Ireland in Oct. When I get back from that trip, it will be time to start regular trips to Minneapolis, quite possibly staying there for a couple of months after the first of the year. Big events happening! http://www.pbase.com/arenared986/grandbabies
I'm the designated helper, I can hardly wait . . . I am soooo excited! You'll be seeing lots of pics from me soon!

Patricia
