Nice, Grafix! I like the wood theme background's rough texture against the smooth flowers.

The renditions in this thread are so good that I struggled to come up with a worthy addition. I got lucky playing with Painter 8: A hot pink 'Serigraphy' layer (low opacity) over a quick pastel clone layer - basically just colored patches treated with 'GlassDistortion--OriginalLuminence'. Some final touch-up in Elements2.

Saby - that is really lovely and such a different technique.

Not sure what you mean by feed back a picture - can you explain.

Saby,

there are some instructions for uploading files here http://www.retouchpro.com/forums/image-help/7933-attaching-files-images-threads-posts.html

They do need to be less than 100k which usually means about 50-60% jpeg quality and a size of 800 x 600 ppi.

Christine

Hi, I'm new here, have a lot to learn and I'm just browsing through the forumpages. Thought to have a go on this one, hope you don't mind.
I use PSP up till now, I do have PS7 but haven't found the time yet to explore it. Well, here's my contribution. Don't mind my grammar, English is not my native language, I'm Dutch.

Titia

Forgot to tell you what I did, but you probably know already
made layer 1: turned it to b&W and used the eraser on one flower.
Then saved all layers and copied the photo again.
Changed the color of the original and
made layer 2: used the eraser on two flowers.
And so on till all was done.
Then used flaslight and adapted the lightening.

Hope that makes sense.
