On I.E. 7.0 the little square has been replaced with a circle with a plus sign inside. Click on it and the image enlarges and leaves a minus sign in the circle. Click again and the size decreases.

Re: Creative Portraits: Another Pensive Redhead

I guess its a black and white day. Raining here in Florida but I'd rather have that than the storms zooming in up East(where my husband is on business).
This is a quick version in PS using the stamp filter with some lines masked out and some drawn in; textured in Painter.
Great versions by all!!

That's a neat effect. Looks like a real rubber stamp on cloth. Nice.

Nice version.
Have you tried this style with the torn edges filter. If you over noise reduce then use torn edges you get a similar result but a little smoother.

Here's another try with the AHB. I too have become fascinated with this remarkable tool.

Re: Creative Portraits: Another Pensive Redhead

Thanks for the tip Peter - I'll try it.
Nice rendition Alan - those Art History brushes do add a whole other dimension to Photoshop - like we need MORE to play with!
