Hey .. Elisabeth Gay

All the best in the next contest... I would like to know ... what is the effect you talked about .. which you've done in PS...

could you tell us please

Regards #950575

Elisabeth A. Gay December 02, 2004

Sure KC, first of all you make a duplicate of the image, then blur it with Gaussian blur, then choose the "Find Edges" filter in "Stylize". Next you go back to the Image options and choose "Equalize". Finally you combine the two pictures by choosing "Apply Image". And this, so Titan told me, is the process known as "rendering". :) Have fun with it! #950967

K. C. Sam December 02, 2004

Oh thanx Elisabeth for the quick responed...

and thanx for your friend Titan>>
all the best :) #951171

K. C. Sam December 02, 2004

Its me again Elisabeth... I tried what you've told me till I reached to:

"Next you go back to the Image options and choose "Equalize"."

I found it it Image menu in Adjustments as Equlize!! is it the one?

another thing do you mean by combine 2 images by choosing apply image is to do merragin CTRL E ... or I will find it in other option... cuz when I merrage it.. nothing changed in the image... and after I don't all that.. the pictures looks way diffrenet then the original... and it gives me colored outline..

can you clarify it for me.. and thanx again..


Elisabeth A. Gay December 05, 2004

OK, you seem to have it right as far as Equalize. Then you select the original copy of the image, and under the Image options, select Apply Image. Then you can delete the copy that you did all the equalizing work on. I'm assuming you are using a PC and Photoshop 7.0. #956298
