Description:
Use one original in as many layers as you like, and by layering/flipping/rotating/warping/blending create a fascinating abstract.

Add a flag to it to allow standard editing for League - wink

I like it too, but not the extended editing version where anything goes.

Noted ... Standard Editing.

The only thing Extended would add is allowing multiple images, which isn't part of the Flip/Blend technique anyway.

Exactly, but in recent flip blend challenges a lot of strange techniques have been used.

I think that's the idea -- it's part creation and part experimentation/discovery ...

Use of layer blending modes will do that. That is where the art comes in.

I know. I've done lots of flip & blend images, including EFS challenges when I've got no "real" photos I want to enter. But the original idea of flip & blend didn't include things like liquify, distort etc. Those are fine for EFS, but to my mind they don't belong in a flip & blend challenge.

FWIW, Liquify and other such distortions that warp the original are actually legal in Standard Editing currently.

I don't understand why, but I realise that.
