  1. Wow! We have the same eye color .
  2. The 'eye' is just perfect for Halloween. The texture looks just like the inside of a pumpkin .

  4.

Thank you to everyone who entered with a wonderful array of images . Thank you to all who voted
  5. You are on a roll ........... great new additions. You have grasped the old good old Shape 3D - which I too like a lot
  6. Wow! This really POPS off the page . I recognize Texture Merger/Shader in this wonderful rendition - it's really fabulous .
  7. Thank you @LionsDragon . The glow is made as thus: Make a layer between the background layer and the ball. Use the Ellipse Select to make a circle and add the color via paint bucket. Then use Motion Blur and use the angle to line it up. Then do another layer and add a smaller spot and Gaussian blur this time. On both layers lower the opacity and sometimes you can also play with the Blending Modes too. @AndrewDavid many thanks for dropping by to comment . You are doing just fine with your images. I would have to say, though, that Texture Merger is a challenge to use and I am still learning how to use it myself . Dear @Woodsy thank you very much . You know me so well ........ I play, play and play and then play some more @lynxster4 thankies a whole bunch . I have a feeling you and I would have a 'lotta larfs' if we got together. Yup - that old Texture Merger is much fun, but sure a challenge!
  8. Having a play around with @MJW's Texture Merger ..............
  9. Ohhhh - that is absolutely perfect for the occasion - it's so well done. I am certain it will be much appreciated and even more special that it came from your heart in PDN. Have a great day at the confirmation
  10. Awesome results @Seerose - they are so colorful and I the texture on the 3rd one .
  11. This is a great Plugin @BoltBait and thank you . Perfect for getting a very subtle change in color on photos and will have many other uses as well. Before After
  12. I heard this on the car radio today ................. brings back so many memories .
  13. Erm - an oil painting? Not really possible in this software, but you could do a few Texture Tutorials on this forum and then reshape the results to look like that picture. One is here and another here.
  14. Many thanks to @Max for his steps which then made everything clear. Happy to say I now know how to use it .
