  1. You must remember that those images were shot in RAW and were worked on in a 16-bit, 32-bit or 64-bit environment. PDN works in 8-bit per channel which results in much detail loss. You can still get good results if you are careful and know what you are doing, but you're starting at a disadvantage.
  2. Yet another way to do it, is with pyrochild's Grid Warp plugin.
  3. Yes and if you combine parallel lines and patterns with Red Ochre's Object Bevel and overlay it onto a texture, you could end up with something like this...
  4. Rainy day. Created with PDN v3.5.11 running in Linux. Plugins used: Tile Reflection, BoltBait's Inner Shadow, Red Ochre's Object Bevel, Midora's Animate Images and various other tweaks....
  5. Well I mostly use PDN v3.5.11 since I'm always in Linux. I do have PDN v4.0.9 installed in a VM running Win7x64 SP1, so I downloaded your Shapes pack to see. I can confirm the same problems you see. It seems to only effect your shapes however. No problems with other shapes I've tried.
  6. That's still a scary looking little spider Red. I don't normally kill spiders in my house. If one bothers anyone, I usually catch and release them outside. An old CD cake container and lid does the job nicely. Nature tends to keep things in check and balance and I try to keep it that way.
  7. I recently made a 2.5-D animation on a still image I shot of a fallen tree. I used this plugin to make the spider web and decided to share as it looks pretty cool, I think.. spider_hole2.mp4 (3.4 MBs)
  8. I like the "Degree Wheel", It takes me back to the good old days when I would Degree in the Lobe Centers of my Racing Cams.....
  9. Thanks for the "Alpha Threshold", it helps smooth things out. AA's also helps on occasion. And much thanks for making it still compatible with PDN v3.5.11 as that is what I mostly use these days with Linux....
  10. Congrats MJW on the win with your great entry. Lots of great entries here as usual. Thank's Drew for hosting.
  11. No need for any plugin, just extract the animal image using various tools within PDN like Magic wand, erraser, etc. Then put the extracted image on a layer above the other image and play with layer Opacity and Blending modes. Here is a quick example, I set Blending Mode to Glow and reduced the Layer Opacity to 77 on the dog.
  12. You need to be more specific in your needs. You can for example extract your animal from a picture and overlay it onto another picture, then reduce the opacity or play with blending modes to get an effect of a ghost.
  13. Great job on that Speedo template IRON67. The barbed wire is most impressive...
  14. Thanks Red, it works great!! Added it to my favorite plugin list......
  15. Awesome plugin for some very cool effects.... Thanks for making this plugin!
  16. You can, however the examples you posted are hopelessly inadequate. You'll need to work with high resolution images on multiple layers to get good results. It is certainly possible if your skills are up to the challenge....
  17. It looks more accurate if you apply the "Trails" plugin before changing the layer perspective....
  18. The ability of this plugin to make realistic engraving is amazing I think....
  19. Good job AgentGoodspeed. Looking forward to the improved version, Red.
  20. To make that PDN ice image, you'll need to make transparent text on a black background. Start with a black rectangle, add white text, then delete the white text so it looks something like this. Then put it on a layer above your texture and apply the Bevel Object plugin to the text layer... Alternatively you can create a white text and add a black border, then delete the white text and apply the Bevel Objects plugin so it looks something like this.
  21. You can use this method to create your engraved logo and save it as a 32-bit png to overlay on any texture/image. It can make a cool watermark for example....
  22. Don't thank me, thank Red Ochre for creating this very nice plugin. I just stumbled upon a cool effect while playing with it....
