  1. ^Not at all and I hope my comment didn't offend Pixey, AndrewDavid or dipstick either. The voting in Pdn comps generally (probably all 'art' comps), is very subjective. There seem to be plenty of guidelines for entry rules, but little instructions for the voters. Generally should we: 1. Vote purely on the image as if we do not know who has created it? (styles are easily recognisable) 2. Consider the normal 'style' of the entrant - if a someone produces something far better than they previously have, should they be encouraged? 3. If someone wins regularly should they be less favoured because they always win or more favoured because they contribute so much to the forum? 4. Are we voting for technical ability, appeal of the image, creativity etc. etc.? 5. Should newbies get an encouraging vote? 6. How many votes are sensible for the number of entrants. Should we have PR - and which system? 7. Will there be drugs testing? Additionally, the voting went a bit awry this time (No blame toe_head, computers are baffling for me too ;-)). I voted the first time but not the second, I only intended to cast one vote. Hope that made some sense, didn't offend everyone and sorry it should have been in discussions somewhere , I guess. Bottom line is thanks to all that competed, voted and t_h for running things.
  2. Ever decreasing circles! Can we relax rule 27 - please? (just kidding rcoombs)
  3. But they are actual light! - try the additive blend mode. (I'd like a way of mixing that mimicked real pigments! - but that's too complex for me - real pigments behave both as filters (additive) and subtractively). Raw Umber is a weird one: - with solvent it is a dark yellow, with white pigment added it tends towards purple? lovely stuff! Big difference between light red and pink too? ... Are you unhappy about the red/green transition?... yellows too dark?... I've tried the previously suggested squaring algorithm with little benefit. Computer screens just seem a bit weak on vibrant yellows, but all colour is relative. I cannot see anything wrong in the way pdn handles colour but you are welcome to experiment via codelab.
  4. Curiously, I found that video recently while looking for the tab. Very impressive musicianship, however, for me the original is the only one that expresses the feeling. (disagree and I'll hex you!;-)). We all need more snorts and tusks. Chuck Berry - king of R&R has gone! - I still can't play most of his 'simple' licks and his metronomic timing is hypnotic. Unsurpassed. Guess it won't be long for Little Richard or the Killer, ah well, most of the best are dead. Gilmour/Townsend. I've got this on a stretched cassette tape. So the internet has some advantages. Great album (About face)btw.
  5. Congrats all! Good to see all the different approaches... all successful, in my opinion! Not so many entries, or voters this time (probably guilty, sorry) but a good theme. Great textures Beta0! - inspiring. Special congrats and thanks Pixey.
  6. Hi Remake, If you change the Secondary 'Color' opacity to zero, it will extend the canvas with a transparent area. Personally I would prefer it to use transparent white as the default though.
  7. I slightly prefer the first version. There's a touch too much blur on the glass in the second one for me. Just my personal taste. I do admire your use of line. Very skilful to portray a cat in just a few lines like that!
  8. Always a pleasure to see your new works. Do I see some 'Highlight' in the last one?
  9. Congrats on another well deserved Galleria promotion, Pixey.
  10. Your thinking is good, however, all things selected (or deemed to be an object) will be treated the same.- so no way of knowing what is a separate leaf.
  11. No , it doesn't. That's just stuff we .... plugin writers/ codey people decide. Contrary to popular news reports, there is no such thing as computer intelligence. I stand to be corrected but doubt that a computer can beat me at chess without human assistance. I decide the place and swimwear!
  12. Well no, as far as I know. Interesting idea. Problem is the computer doesn't know what a leaf is. Best bet is to select each leaf, one at a time (yes tiresome),then use Adjustment/ Hue sat. Food for thought.
  13. Inventive use of the effect! - Glad you found it useful and thanks for posting the images.
  14. I find this a simple way to correct whole photos before applying other distortions. Camera lens distortion correction (kindly found by E.E.R)
  15. Hi simmetric The original (unzipped) version didn't have an Anti-Alias level slider. The new zipped version does. Sorry but please could you recompile to show under "Text Formations". This version appears under "Text formations" - the SubMenuNames are case sensitive. Apologies for nagging!
  16. Very useful - Many thanks for sharing! A few small points: 1. I think the forum prefers .dlls to be 'zipped'. 2. There is already a SubMenuName "Text Formations" - it would be tidier to have this one there too. 3. Configurable anti-aliasing - I can't see a U.I. control for that? although there is an Int32Property for it in PropertyCollection on github? Thanks for sharing the code and welcome to the forum too.
  17. Pack updated. Both installer (for Pdn4+ only) and zipped pack. BeznCurve fixed for Pdn4. Flourish, Vanishing Point, CompoGrids and Poster added. Thanks to BoltBait for the installer and for tweaking my upload limit to allow the pack to be attached.
  18. The spiral option looks fun - and good example images above. Thanks for the update.
  19. Good work! - I like it when you discover faces in pseudo random images.
  20. It wouldn't look very good as there would be a transparent region all around the selection? This can be done convincingly, using Pyrochild's Liquify plugin. Plugins cannot change the selection but can resize the image within a selection - try Layers/Rotate and Zoom within a selection.
