wow! nice one mx...

i have a doubt. pretty newbie one in fact, cos i've just been playing with PS for a month or so..
how do you people make that smear effect that produces those nice horizontal lines.
i've seen it everywhere, but i have always wondered if it was made with some sort of filter.. :)


12-20-2002, 06:06 PM
Check out the tutorial thread in this forum somewhere ;)

Hola..nice volley's guys.

MX- what did you use for your first volley? 3DSM?

Nayades- to do that 'smear' effect you like....just grab an area (1 pixel wide) and free transform it...streching it as far as you want.

You can use the single row/pixel selection tool (under the square/circle marquee tool)

MX- I would like to battle you if you have any free time soon. I like your style...and I believe you would push me to try new stuff and become a better PS user. I only had one battle..and the "other" person just took my image and added/masked it into some sunglasses or TV set..and that was it....wasnt very fun or challenging.
