Reynaldo D. Reyes 1/2/2008 1:26:11 AM

I realize it's late to add my comments but congrats anyway, I'll add this to my favorites. Are you sharing the tips how it's done? #5279774

Steven E. Ray 1/2/2008 4:52:47 PM

Thanks everyone! I thought this one would be at least a winner... but not... pout.

Reynaldo, there is no trick to the 3D effect. I just added a white bar on a layer in Photoshop, cut out the ear using the marquee tool and it is done! You do need a photo with something that is close to the edge that can be cut out. If you photograph a subect during an approach, it will look 3D. That's about it :) #5283515

Reynaldo D. Reyes 1/2/2008 6:23:19 PM

Thanks, I'll try it. You're super! :) #5283806
