  1. What a lovely outcome! Heart chains! Very clever. Now you can use the principles for other images too. Well done!
  2. OMG! You cheeky thing! Yes, disqualified Definitely repost in the comedy thread or your own gallery. Fancy putting anchovies in that list I think it would be fun to have a post about what people would put on their toast. I see there is cheese & carrots, a few with jam or marmalade, tomato but nobody put vegemite! I thought it was the mouldy old toast that was the issue. Now we can all play nicely again ⚽
  3. Peeps, @ardneh's entry complies with the rules of the comp. Personally, I thought it was clever & funny. Really? Anyone who has ever had kids will know the joys of finding expired food in unexpected places. Maybe that is why we know have CDs & not VCRs? On the subject of unpublished plugins...if you have the ability to write one cool. Not everyone can use the published plugins effectively - like me So no unfair advantage as far as I can see. That being said, if you really like a plugin that someone has created, why not ask them to publish it? Some plugins so have a limit
  4. Oh fabulous! If only people could have a restart. I'd be up for that!
  5. Ooooh! Happy birthday Pixey. May all you wishes come true on your special day
  6. So we think 2020 was bad. Personally, some awful things did go down. However, I can remember years too that were bad. Endless drought, fires, floods, illnesses that we were not sure of surviving. Globally we survived, challenged ourselves & grew. Changed, learnt new things, evolved. Left behind people & things that no longer served to build us up. Each year I have started the year with what I would like to see in the coming year. In thinking about this I have come too realise it has all come true one way or another. It depends on your attitude on how you view things. This year
  7. I just love those eyebrows! I think you did a marvellous job. There are a lot of elements in this image, each one just so nice. Well done!
  8. Oooh how nice are these! Totally have to agree with @Red ochre! Those are my faves too. Love seeing your new works.
  9. Oooh what a lovely image. Lots of depth & the colours are rather soothing too.
  10. Another very useful tip that I learnt way back, was to put as much as you can on a separate layer, name layers (esp. initially) & keep a PDN file of your work as well as a flattened image file. Really great when you want to use a part of the image again later.
  11. The way I get crisper images is to increase the size by 400% So if my final image is to be 500 x 200 I make the original image 2000 x 800 & then when I am done I decrease to 25%. AA Assistant is great but when using 4x the size Gaussian Blur can also work for you.
  12. Oh good on you for making a gallery. You can also add your SOTW here if you want. The Merry Christmas one is so real that I am sure if I put my hand on a letter, it will leave my handprint on it. Lovely works!
