Hi Donna! The Addiction Has Started!LOL!!You Will Be Wanting To Flood Everything:-)This Looks Great!! #816706

Donna R. Moratelli 10/1/2004 6:35:21 PM

Hi Terry, Thanks..No addiction on my part...
Ive had the filter since April but I don't have much interest in filter use. I've played around with it a little bit but filters just arn't my thing even though I like the results. They have their place in the publishing world and if there is a need for a flood or little ball added to an image, at least I'll know how to make them thanks to Kactus KEn..
Thank you Karen, ma & Dan.
I appreciate all of the comments. #816841

Donna R. Moratelli 11/26/2004 1:53:51 PM

Thanks Everyone!!
Patricia, I wish that I could say that I was addicted but it's too time consuming for me at this stage in the game.
Right now it's so much easier to just shoot and post. Someday though; I will dedicate some more time to photoshop filters & effects, and create mind blowing images.
It is definatly worth the time spent. I love the final results. #939367
