This Shape3D plugin makes us lazy! Normally, it'd be an accomplishment if you'd be able to create a nice orb. Now, it's plain simple. I like being lazy. :D

By the way, nice smooth edges on your cutout. Did you use an Alpha Mask for that?

No, never quite got the hang of using the Alpha Mask. I simply cutout the image and feather. Perhaps I should practise using the Alpha Mask more often; might produce some even better results.

cjmcguinness, NICE job with the Portrait plugin! Glad someone is getting some use out of it.

Both your Portrait and Feather plugins are indespensible for photo manipulation. Just got a new digital camera and I am producing some fantastic results using both of them.

alright. i made two images using relatively the same method. actually the story goes that my friend and i were having a competition: who could create a cooler image. i was trying to prove that PdN was just as good as photoshop because he used ps and i use PdN. So, he created something like the two i will post and then i lost because mine was worse. i decided to try to make something like his and he gave me a hint so here are my results (yes, i like the top one more too, but it took twice as long to make and it had 32 layers most of which i combined to get an effect):

if anyone wants me to, i can create a tut on how to make something like the lower one.

Very nice images. I like the first more.

Wow, that's a surprisingly good result for a feather!

I'm sure the Portrait effect helped here. It also includes a very soft blurring effect (softer than gaussian blur) as part of its image manipulation.

2. Framing Composition: Follow the Rule of Thirds to keep an interesting composition. This image was well-framed to begin with, so that's a plus. In the case the the image with which you're working is not, you may have to crop creatively or isolate and move the subject and replace the background.

In relation to the compositional Rule of Thirds, I actually published a tutorial on that very subject in this forum a while back (went pretty much unnoticed). So, for anyone who's interested in aesthetic photo composition, as well as checking out the wikipedia entry, take a look at this tut - Cropping Photographs - The Rule of Thirds

My my, I must admit that I never knew that tutorial existed. :oops:

It's good, though. Informative and well explained. Sure I'm a little late to the game, but I can still cheer for the team, can't I? :)

This is a Web Template that I started today. Obviously it's not that complicated because I'm all but done. There is a tiny error in the image because the page was too big to fit on my screen at once.

Any comments and feedback is appreciated.

Playing around with abstractions again and came up with this image:

red_blue_fract.png

It's along the fractal lines again, but this one seems a bit more "3-D" to me and a lot less chaotic due to fewer colors.

^^Huh?

I think you mean artists..

Well I'll try and answer your question.

I made all of the images and artwork you see in there in Paint.NET.

EDIT: Bringing template to current page...

The fruit of my efforts when I was virtually the only one on. I'm not too proud though, because it was very boring.

This came up while I was playin' around with some new effects I downloaded, and then trying out the new curves system :D :
