Flower Kaleidoscopes

I forgot that you could do more with PhotoShop than just cropping, straightening, fixing the color and so forth and so on. There are all these wonderful plug-ins available and so I took advantage of the kaleidescope option to produce these pictures.

Very beautiful...I have Photoshop but I have still to try and use it...It's so overwhelming, seeing those photographs make me want to give it another try. Thank you, Karen :-)

I'm with Anyes, I've downloaded PS but have yet to give it a try.

Who knew how much fun awaited me!

These are fabulous. I don't do much with my photos - maybe i should have a go at special effects!!

The dandeliion? I see a spider mandala.

I don't have photoshop;my best effort was simply desaturating my original photo.Maybe I should do more "clever" stuff. A few spare hours would help. Anybody...?

Absolutely gorgeous! I'm currently following a Photoshop course (?). Have had 8 lessons (out of 10) already, but this option is new for me. Love it!

Anyes: The plug-in is super easy to use and fun.

Jane: A whole wide world is waiting for you with Photoshop. It is the best photographer's tool since ultraviolet filters!

Anne: I love your photos with or without special effects. This is just a one-time deal for the blog.

Di: Maybe you and Estorbo could come up with something while you're in NYC?

Carolina: If it's not in your lessons, don't worry. It is one of the easiest plug-ins to work with.
