Thanks, Wendy. Glad you like to photo. The only thing I did not buzz was the signs above the store fronts. China was a great trip. I do plan to return.

What do you and others mean by "buzz"?
A somewhat clueless beginner,

Hi Susan F;
I was in the same boat you're in at one time...hearing about this 'buzz' thing.

Thanks to Jim Zuckerman...
Buzz.x is a filter (Buzz Simplifier) available from a company in England. Here's a link: http://www.skydancers.com/_fo2pix/buzzproXmac.html

The filter, when used, will give your images a 'painted' effect. I have other images in my gallery that I 'buzzed.' Review them, if you like.

You can download the plug-in and trial it (free) for X number of times (don't remember the number of uses of the filter you can use for free). Afterwards, you have the option to purchase the filter.

I'm very happy with the results. And you can view others images on this website to see the results they're getting.

Hope this helps. Otherwise, send me an email and we can discuss off-line.

Good luck!

Thanks for the information. After checking out your gallery (which has great pictures in it, by the way) I'm eager to try it out.
