Did you watch the video? It really did help!

I think it turned quite well for my second attempt.

You're :awesome: !!!

Well done!!!

If you're looking for a really *easy* way to achieve this effect, I can't recommend the photobucket editing tool highly enough!

Rosie's going to look for instructions because that's too cool...

Rosie, there's a tiny tutorial somewhere around here...let me find the link for you...

Ok, Rosie, here ya go....I'm just gonna copy and repost this from the other thread so others can see it as well!

Once you've uploaded a photo to photobucket (www.photobucket.com), click the edit button (there's several places to find this, let me know if you have trouble). Once on the edit page, you'll see a row of tabs across the top of the screen. If you choose the "GEEK" tab it will take you to a second page. Once there, choose the "smart recolor" option. Once chosen, this will open up a sort of "pop up window" on top. In the right hand corner of the "pop up" you'll see a video tutorial. Watch it. :yes: I'm not being flip, I swear, but there is NO way I could explain it any better than this step by step walk through does. The only thing I have to add to what you will learn from the vid tutorial is that if you want to just have the "color splash" (and the rest in B&W) choose the color black or gray as your "recolor" option (this will make more sense when you get started )

Give it a try and have some fun, it does take a bit of patience and finessing, but you'll get it! Can't wait to see the results! If you have any questions, give me a shout!

Like Becca said, definitely watch the video! Honestly, I would have had no clue as to what to do without it. :yes:

Totally agree...I'm usually a "if all else fails, read the directions" sort of girl, but with this, I just sat looking at the screen for the longest time wondering what the heck I was accomplishing. Once I watched the video, it was like "OF COURSE!"

Here's another go at it. I just love this, but it does take some time. Zooming in and zooming out. My option of this kind of effect on corel just splatters color in lots of places. Very frustrating, but not no more. :D

Thanks, I just don't have the patience to do the precision flower details like you FD! Perhaps that's why photographers charge so much??

I think yours is absolutely lovely. I unfortunately don't have people in most of my pictures (just arthur), so I got to go with the flowers. :D
