Default Now for some fun...

I was recently introduced to this fun process, sometimes called the Amazing Circles. It's very easy and lots of fun, if you have Photoshop or PS Elements. Follow these instructions and get ready to be addicted!

One thing they neglect to tell is that you need to re-select the square section before applying the final distortion.












Sometimes I get a line down the middle, visible here. I think that is because I wasn't careful enough when selecting the area before the second Distortion application.

How fun, Saly. They remind me of beautiful glass paperweights.

Amazing is right! I love all of them, but the one with the hummer really is my favorite!

Hmmm, now I have to get PS Elements!

FYI... Best Buy has Elements 10 for $55 with free shipping. I didn't see any limitations like upgrade only or with the purchase of something else. Not sure if other vendors have similar deals.

Edit: I just checked, and Amazon has it for $50.

Thanks everyone, I hope you get the chance to try because it is fun, and now I can't stop..... They really do look like glass balls, don't they?

Yes I also noticed yesterday that PSE is selling for $50, which is a great deal for a very powerful tool.
