In ADOBE PSE7

I will attach the

Playing with filters is so much fun and I can see that you are enjoying yourself.

I remember the first time I discovered Plastic Wrap. I thought it was so cool, I think that I wrapped everything for several weeks.

The plastic wrap filter was an excellent choice for this photo! I love the way it defined the outline of the petals!

Hi Karen, John, Renata and Patrick! Thanks you guys. If you ever try this effect and want it to look like mine I slid the sliders all the way to the right to FULL TILT! I liked that look best!

ADOBE PSE7 has MANY EFFECTS and you can even COMBINED THEM if you "SAVE AS" in between...It's smart to save your steps ANYWAY. I like doing a slide show afterwards to see them large screen to see which ones I like best. Then I pick and ENTER! :)

Thanks for all you guys have said!

-Laura

Hey, Pom!
Congratulations on your Digital Darkroom inclusion this month! I like this fractalius one a LOT, especially with the pink-and-white flower remaining in original form.
