Let me add my congrats on this beautiful image, Damian! I was curious about what filter/effect you used on this? #168557

Damian P. Gadal August 15, 2003

Thank you Evy, Gary, Jean, Donna Rae, Colette, Jill, Nicola, birdie, Bernard, Elizabeth, Betsy, Ellen, and Patricia!

Patricia, I like to use the drybrush filter and then the crosshatch filter on top of that, setting the pixels and such to my liking, and adjusting the the curves, brightness, contrast, etc. afterwards... (I'm using PS 5.5)
