This is a great composition, and presented very well. The colors you have went with are superb. Now my question to you is how ever did you do this? The main thing is how did you stay in the lines....LOL.... #430084

Julie Abston March 18, 2004

Hi Darren! First of all, thank you very much for your kind comments!! I used the magnetic lasso to select a single jar... then (after selected) used the plugin Tormentia, color creep to change the color.
Then, did the same to the rest. It was a very fun photo to play with. I wish I still had the original to show you, but unfortunately, I don't. Thanks again!!! #430388

Thanks for the info, I thought that was the way, but I have trouble staying in the lines....LOL....A big CONGRATS to you on being in the finals. #432782
