Hey Guy,
Nice job with the dandelions. I guess that would be enough dandelions to make a few bottles of dandelion wine.

Indeed it is.. I knew the yellow would stand out, and that photo matched perspective quite nicely.

How about Guy's solution? Wrong kind of weeds? Comment on what you like/don't like about his approach. Do you have some example weeds you're trying yourself. (Upload to flckr, too.)
[Excellent job, Guy!]

I am just using Photoshop on my G5. Are people using other programs? If so, what?
Many people use Photoshop, others use Paint Shop Pro. Some use Elements; a few use The Gimp. If you can't do it in Photoshop, it's probably not doable with any of the others.

I am struggling with how the weeds would look naturally grown in. Any advice?
How familiar are you with the use of layer masks and blend modes? Off hand it seems to me these would form the basis for a Photoshop approach.

Also, is there a way to post a hi-res image on here?
Unfortunately not. The site owner established the 100kb maximum.
