    Beautiful image! It looks a lot like a painting. I have the Buzz but I really don't know how to use it well.

Hi Shelley,
Buzz is a great PS filter. It's easy to use, but use it on an image that has color and looks like it might be nice as a painting. Then bring up the saturation after you are done, because Buzz desaturates. I show this and other cool things in my Photoshop Tips, Tricks and Filter Magic class here at BP, and Buzz is one of the class favorites. Good luck, Shelley! Scotty

I love using the buzz filter. Your Venice canal shot is wonderful...would love to go back there now that I'm involved in photography. I recently bought a new computer and am using Elements 5. I've tried to install my buzz software but it doesn't end up in the plug-in folder. Do you know if it can be used with Elements?
