    I really like the background of this image, Rick. It looks like a scan of a picture and yet when I look at that green spiky plant next to the tiger it looks painted. Is there more going on here then just a scan? The tiger is quite convincing (his right back leg seems a tad too straight tho)...

    Gooky images

    Thanks for the offer, Stu. Yep, I'm getting "extra" stuff on it. However, I'll scrutinize the image zoomed up to see what's what. If I can't figure it out, will post the image here. No point in wasting anyone's time (I mean not more than I'm already doing). :)

    Gooky images

    Thanks Erik for your reply. I save images both as Jpegs after flattening the image and also as psd files containing all the layers. Neither version shows anything that tells me why there's this messiness.

    Gooky images

    This evening I tried to upload an image of a glass ball. What I ended up seeing was gook on the picture. It is the second time this week this happened (embarrassed). I have looked at the image, all the layers and don't know where it's coming from. Any suggestions?

    Levels trick

    Borg, stop trespassing in my head! After doing some level testing on an image I had done, I wanted to revisit your post in which you discuss Ansel Adams' 9 zone value system, did searches but could not find it. Then I made my own greyscale and did some experiments. Wanted to post it here but...

    Levels trick

    Funny, just last night I was looking into this stuff. Thanks for your in-depth post.

    challenge

    Oz, thanks so much for posting that link. It's dynamite and what a good learning experience those challenges are! And even if you don't tackle them yourselves, just reading how submitters solved the problems is informative. I was stunned to see how that totally washed out, faded picture got...

    Metal Boy

    That's great, Rick! After looking at your image, what do you think? Should the PSG come out with annual Golden Keepers??? You would be most definitely nominated for your "Don't worry Keeper; we'll get version 7.0". That image has made me laugh so wholeheartedly this week, that it should be...

    Metal Boy

    It's quite all right, Vogonpoet, and thanks for all your doing in this. In your original Metal Boy you added some "secret ingredient" which just give that nice extra touch to it. Will be exploring more ways with images like this. After all, you don't learn all that much if you get it all spoonfed.

    Metal Boy

    And here's a little variation on the above. The Keeper will probably be none too pleased but I think it looks pretty cool.

    Metal Boy

    I gave "our little darling" the Vogonpoet treatment. I'll post it here. It is a nice effect but it can't compare with what V did. Obviously at some point he inversed the image but can't figure out where to do this. I tried to set the blending mode of the curves at difference, tried some other...

    Metal Boy

    Thanks for the feedback. Will experiment with this a little tonight. Vogonpoet, good to see you here; I know you from the GN (I'm Journey there).

    Metal Boy

    In the challenge 3 thread, page 3 or so, is a lovely image by vogonpoet which he called Metal Boy. How did he it? Not asking for a detailed tut but some rough, general idea on how V went about it. Did he do a metal texture and overlaid that over the original image? It is a nice effect and the...

    Favorite filter

    Yesterday had a look at the Photo techniques forum. Someone had just posted there about the Find Edges filter as well. What he did was just put a pixel dot on the canvas and then started hitting Find Edges (control F) 40 times or so. He came up with very interesting patterns. So, i played with...

    Jpeg compression

    Thanks, Oz! Am downloading Irfanview right now; will play with it later today.

    Favorite filter

    Blur, noise, clouds are the main staples. I like the displacement filter and the artistic and texture ones. The ones that really bring out the 3 year old in me are the Find Edges and the Glowing Edges. Can't help myself, enjoy the wow! moments there. :D Anyone knows what you CAN do with...
