Steve M. Harrington 10/20/2006 9:28:03 AM

Hi Sherry. This is one of the most effective uses of the Orton Technique I've seen. How did you get this edge effect? #3476989

Sherry K. Adkins 10/23/2006 6:10:30 PM

Thank you, Steve, for the compliments.This edge was purely experimental. This image was originally a slide. When I scan, my scanner, a Minolta Dimage, scans the slides with a black border around it. I then used the magic wand at a low tolerance and selected the border. I then deleted the part it had selected. It only selected part of the border and left what you see. I have tried it again and the results are always different. It is quite different and unpredictable. #3491007
