Re: Great Uncle George

Not complete yet still needs alot of work. Cant remember exactly how i got to this but i did some work in lab mode inverting the a and b channels and using calculations with the lightness and a channel and the lightness and b channels to create two new alpha channels. switched back to rgb mode and copied alpha 1 channel and pasted to new layer did the same with the alpha 2 channel then set blending modes to taste. used patch tool to remove most of the mildew came up with this so far.

Hey John, Hve you used photoshop?
I think you can do it a lot of graphis works using that....

Hi Kevin, no I've not used photoshop - too much of a scrooge to pay for it when I've paid for PSP maybe! LOL!
