Shirley A. Kinney December 30, 2007

Wow, Sherry, this is beautiful. Love what you have done with it. I would also be interested in what effects you gave this one. #5270655

Sherry Karr Adkins level-deluxe December 30, 2007

Thank you Shirley. This was done with the Fractalius plug-in( I used two different filters in the plug-in. The first one is one called 'Crayon soft' and the other 'Unsharp mask'.I then layered them on top of each other, the 'Crayon soft ' one on top and used the Luminosity layer mode. This plug-in uses alot of memory so if you work with it, be sure and save all work before using the plug-in,(PS shuts down on me sometimes when using it).They have a demo and if you decide to purchase it, it is around $39.00. #5270743
