  1. This is such a fun effect.... If you are "one eyed" about something here's a great way to show it lol You can get great images to use from Flair buttons, already rounded!
  2. Thank you guys, enjoyed seeing your results and hearing how people enjoy trying it. Just an aside, Tom the Troll, a couple of things that will help.... Your photo is way too big for the forum, might want to save a smaller version for the forum :-) When you look at the negative spaces behind the weaves you will see the doubling of the shadows..... as mentioned in the last steps you need to elminate the doubling by selecting the shape deleting before you flatten your image.
  3. Thanks for the inspiration pdnnoob.... same setting different effect....
  4. Oh Thanks pdnnoob I dont feel quite so stupid now... I love the way yours looks and it certainly opens up different avenues for effects on each strip and the overal effects as well.
  5. Well that would be because I love reinventing the wheel! Or probably truthfuly that I had no idea there was such a thing! Sorry... cant see where to remove the post now.... how do I do that?
  6. This tutorial is available as a PDF. Click here to view or download it I came across this technique and decided to have a go at it in pdn. I love the results and thought you might too! Your result should be this First thing we will do is open our image and add a new layer. To this layer we are going to add a grid (render...grid). This grid should be even across the image and start and end gridlines at all edges. You need to mark your grid to show foreground only.

  8. Had done some of these before and decided to revisit and do some more. Never fails to impress to me... but then it doesnt always take much lol
  9. Thanks so much for this! Had a play with it and obviously it takes time to perfect but here is my first attempt, shall be trying it again for sure. Well done.....
  10. I have tried drawing the borders then tilting but to me the edge effect is never as clean..... maybe it's just me. Anyone else have better luck with doing that way? Maybe it's just personal preference.
  11. This tutorial is available as a PDF. Click here to view or download it Hope this is OK to post as new thread..... I saw this effect and decided to try my hand at it. (Modified with screen shots) If you would like to see the steps and try it here we go: 1. Open the image you would like to splice 2. Resize the canvas enough to allow you to slice up the segments and move around slightly. So for example a 750x500 could be sized to 1000x750. Using magic wand remove the white border 3. Add new layer behind your image onto which you add a grid (
  12. Sometimes you get surprisingly great detail in parts of the image.... I love the way the sparks light up in this attempt!
  13. Realised the stack polaroids with one picture behind give you some fun options too....
  14. Thought I would have a play with this tutorial and some Egypt travel pics... like the effect!
