It seems like a month of textures and overlays wasn't that long ago but I feel like doing another one. Use textures, curves, various blending modes, brushes, clipart ...anything really. And no need to go out and shoot all new images if you don't want to. I know I have TONS of stuff I haven't even touched yet as far as processing goes...seriously, my cam could break and I could keep busy well over a year going through "old" stuff. But if no one has seen it yet...it's new to you right?!

Anyone game?

Short-dog's powers are strong and true...but no need to sacrifice your feeble and incapacitated kitties as I will join your side challenge. :-P

I am interested in this, I really enjoyed the last one I did. I won't be able to start until after the 4th of July. We are leaving for a quick vacation tomorrow morning! I'll have plenty of new pictures to work with when I get back!

Just an evening bump...bump...bump.

Count me in. I'll do what I can. Layers is definitely something I'd like to play with.... some more.

I used layers to make this photo...does that mean I could do something along the lines of this?

Do whatever you want. We usually grunge them up and give some cool textures and scratches like ' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/15000-19999/15711/120/647759.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/15000-19999/15711/120/647759.jpg', '/') + 1) .

I'd like to join in, but I am unsure how often I can post...my computer seems to be rejecting DPC lately. Other sites seem to work fine but not DPC. :(?

Your computer is only looking out for your best interests and your general well-being. :-)

Well, if you're going to dangle candy in front of me, I guess I'll have to
grab a bite or two. Count me in. Love this theme.

Edited to add this easy one to start:

original ' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/10000-14999/14476/120/693953.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/10000-14999/14476/120/693953.jpg', '/') + 1) . '
new ' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/10000-14999/14476/120/693952.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/10000-14999/14476/120/693952.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

my steps are on the 'new' and I'll repeat them here:
Started with an easy one. Changed the background by selecting it, choosing two colors from flower and applying Clouds Difference. Still on b/ground layer, added artistic effects of various types (fresco, dry brush) ending with palette knife to get an effect I liked. Sharpened background, cleaned up a few edges with Refine Edge and that's about it.

Think I'd like to do a side challenge for a change. :) An amazing talent pool here and I'm sure there'll be tons to enjoy and learn from this group. R

'' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/35000-39999/36988/120/694629.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/35000-39999/36988/120/694629.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

Just a little edit to include the texture used.
Edited original to taste and applied texture in multiply mode.
Desaturated image and adjusted curves and sharpness.

OOh goodie, the month has started! Overlays is my favorite spectator sport. Is this where they all will appear?
