I guess fall is fast approaching. I used PhotoMaster Gold and Extensis WaterColor Frame 02.09.
Thanks

That turned out very nice, Bob. You're right: Fall in the U.S. is right around the corner.

Do you have Buzz (the plugin), too? If so, how do you like the plugin vs. PAM?

Yes, I have both PAM and Buzz Pro 2. I like the Pam for full work on a complex image many close and different shapes, and changing lights and shadows (ie: like this one and the flower street scene you had in the spring). I use the Buzz as part of a series of layers in photoshop or if I have a simple image (ie. a single main image or wide spacing between images). As to which is better I am not sure they both just have there place.

The only real downer about both products is that you get the merging of two colors together (it makes things look cloudy and unnatural) which I really don't like at all. I really wish I could control that part more.

I would like to hear from anyone who has upgraded from Buzz Pro 2 to the new version of Buzz and their thoughts. I heard that they have added white highlights into the new product which would be a plus.

Thank you for your question and time.
Bob

Hi, Bob, I use Buzz Lite, almost always just Simplifier One. I found the same thing, but have been trying using selections before I Buzz. So far, my favorite is to select Shadows, feather very slightly (1 or 2), Buzz; then midtones, then highlights. Depending on the image, I'll buzz each selection a different amount. It's really not as complicated as it sounds, I wrote an action which does everything except enter the buzz amounts. I find this keeps the colors much clearer.

THe first image just has Buzz simplifier 1 applied, first to the darker areas and then to the lighter areas. Bob, is closer to what you were trying to get?

The second image adds a big dose of Impressionist, the charcoal and watercolor settings, and then one of Cheryl H's "glaze" layers, along with some levels and saturation adjustments.

It's good to be home from vacation and back in the swing of things!

Patricia

note - the pictures are reversed, the impressionist image is the first one.

Hi Danny,

Please find attached my rather late attempt. I simply duplicated the Layer Blurred it, and added a Color Fill Layer.

Regards

Con
