What effects did you use William? #3141441

William88 August 09, 2006

Thank you very much, Barbara. I use curves, USM, layer mask, emboss, color adjustment, G blur, M blur, wave, ripple, C mixer, levels and sharpen more. The original size is 3502 pixel that overloaded the computer and crashed the Photoshop - luckily after saved and Picasa2 exported the results. #3143766
