    Re: Paint Shop Pro & PhotoFiltre Talk

    Thanks Marja!

    Harnser, could we see your attempt? without seeing it, I'll guess that free transform and light and shadow could be the culprits. Light and shadow is what tends to make things look real to me. And I don't have much ability in that area, sadly.

    Re: Paint Shop Pro & PhotoFiltre Talk

    Thanks for that! This is what I have got so far but it looks a bit Heath Robinson to me cos the edges are all jaggy and the corners have got a tad rounded!

    What do you think ?

    Cheers,

    Sally

    Re: Paint Shop Pro & PhotoFiltre Talk

    Looks good! What you might do after warping, is freehand select to get rid of those jags, cut and repaste, before applying the shadow.....

    PS. Hi Marja! Thanks for the comments!

    Doh! Yes I should have thought of that! If put a bit extra on the border it will enable me to cut the jaggies off and square off the corners!

    You are all bricks!!!!! I will try again and repost!

    TTFN,

    Sally

    Re: Paint Shop Pro & PhotoFiltre Talk

    Hey Sally,

    Sorry I missed your messages, I sort of took a couple days off from e-mail. Just for the heck of it, I tried the usual tricks to try to make the pic look better. I brightened it quite a bit, and sharpened it some, and blurred the photo edges a little. What seems weird to me is the perspective. The coffee cup just seems like it should be lying down more, maybe its just an illusion. Was that the specific photo of the tutorial or just a similar one? Also, if possible, try to do the transform all in one or maybe two steps, and since the exact angle probably is not important, keep an eye on the edges and pick and angle where the edges, or other straight lines just seem to line up better, it can make a difference. Aside from that, good job. I really couldn't do the shadow myself, but I'm going to tackle that someday soon!

    Re: Paint Shop Pro & PhotoFiltre Talk

    Thanks for that - I like your version and I understand what you are saying! I just took a picture I had used for another tutorial but I confess I didn't think to pay attention to the natural lines of the mug and keep them in mind when I was bending the edges.

    Cheers,

    Sally

    Hi Sally,


    Thanks for your comments. I have tried to do tutorials, but I don't seem self motivated enough. I've decided to do an online photoshopcourse, where perhaps I will have more motivation. This could be the start of something big...my head!

    Hey, Big Buck-

    I like the snake, it is ingenious!

    Hey, Nat? You didn't make those blue ice cubes did you?


    In the world of fractals you sometimes stumble upon people or animals. I took my camera along with me, and here is one of the pictures. A little baby chick!

    (BTW, I did absolutely no editing on this, not even color adjustment).

    Re: Paint Shop Pro & PhotoFiltre Talk

    Big Buck,

    Wow, those are really odd looking! Parts of those feet and legs look, if not alive, maybe re-annimated? The sutures of the second picture seem to confirm my worst fears. You've dug up some poor chap and brought them back to life!

    I dont know where you got the idea to use an egg, but it was a great choice. The porras surface really does look like skin. Also the lighting and shadows plus some of the realistic contours might just be good enough to get you locked up.

    All in all, mysterious, and good work!

    To Nat
    Glad you got PSP! I wish I could see some of your creations soon.;)

    ---------------------

    I like your scarecrow BBuck :cool: and Hands-Off you did very well with the mugs!

    Here for Hands-off for him to see the beginner's first trials at 3D,
    the rendering took about 15 minutes.

    Hi-

    That's very cool, Uguel! I want to learn to do that kind of thing too, but I have a ways to go yet. I am trying some line art projects but nothing is as good as I want yet.

    I just discovered a nice free pluging by Redfield called "Lattice composer" I thing you might like it because it is can be incorportated in paintings as very reall looking lattices. The following will show some of the textures, but they actually look better a big larger.

    Well, every new programs we get, even the easy ones, take some time to learn. Since Bryce is a 3D program I expected it to be much more difficult than Paint Shop and Photoshop. But is is not. It is very intuitive and not very complicated. The only thing is to get used to the nooks and crannies of the interface. Once you get familiar with the environment, you'll be fine.:)

    I like that filter and what you did with it Hands Off. I just downloaded it
    from that page:

    http://redfieldplugins.com/filterLatticeComposer.htm


    It is very interesting those effects that you get with that filter and the colours
    remain very bright after. It might be good for letter effects and collages too.
