See comments for examples! Transform your images into impressionist/watercolor/abstract Pseudo-HDR paintings! Features: - 10 ART BORDERS - 12 EDGE Detect Modes - 3 independent TEXTURE Layers - 2 Tint Modes Contain parts of "Pseudo-HDR" filter by Gene S Morgan. TIPS: - For quick, small details paintings, 'Size, pixels' slider is your best friend! - Totally disable the HDR effect: set "Pseudo-HDR %" control to '0'(zero) - Try "EDGE Detect" modes 10-12 on abstract source images (reduce "EDGE Threshold" for thinner contours) - "EDGE Detect" modes 7-12 are based on the FF3 Edge Detector component, while modes 1-6 use classic detection techniques - Reduce shades: set "Pseudo-HDR Balance" to '100'
