was bored and messing with some PS...kinda through this together.

I figured no way to get better than 'tennis' with someone who is better than me. (I sure can use the challenge and inspiration) I know I stink at PS...but only way to get better is practice I suppose. (practicing my 'extracts' and trying the 'grunge' fad that has been going aorund....hope you all like it. another image I did a splash with is here: www.dmstudios.net

So heres the serve....


**Keep size to 600x480 (anyway).
**some characteristic from previous image.
**relatively small return times.
**4-6 volleys each

I dont care who battles me..but if you volley...at least do SOMETHING...dont just find another image and superimpose my image on the TV or in the sunglasses and call it a day....at least add some text effects..or something please.

I fully intended to volly, but when I started up PS7 and played around with the pic you posted, it only served to remind me how totally horrible I am at design. Sorry, but it's better this way. ;)

I'll try, but if You think You suck, then I'd better not try to evaluate MY level :D

/me bows humbly :D

see ya soon :)

part of the fun of tennis is that it's a great learning tool for PS/Graphics progs. Don't be ashamed to try, everyone started somewhere :)

01-04-2003, 01:56 PM
lol, I'll wait 'till I get a volley I can confidently serve back, thank you :p

01-04-2003, 02:05 PM
Sad thing I didn't read the rules carefully... Because I don't have time for 4-6 volleys, alas :(. Anyone to pick after me?


It could be removed in the near future from the serwer, so I'll post it as attachment to make sure it wont disappear soon...

And, anyone care to help a newbie out? It's my second attempt at PS tennis, and I got serious problems with color management when I tried to save the image. Everything got sorta grayed out, especially the bluish feel of the image I was trying to achieve, and I couldn't force it to it's original color space. Tried converting it to various color profiles - nothing helped. So I played a little with levels and contrast to make it look like the original image, and succeded ;). But the question is how to preserve document colors when saving the image for web? I work in sRGB (i think - i simply didn't tinker with color profiles after ps7 installation...)

warm greetz to all...

PS: Notice the nice infinithingy in the upper left corner of the image :D

nice volley. Too bad you can commit to the match.. :( I will just wait for another person to step up..I dont want to 'start' with you..
and have ya leave in the middle. I'll leave the first serve up for whoever takes your place/challenge.


Aversion?..Gerbs? Blue Samurai??

Love the poem, still keeping up the flower element :)

01-09-2003, 01:24 AM
Yeah,..the poem is great...very truthfull,..and to the point. :)

Flower element was hard to get rid of...he didnt add to much else...(have to keep one element)....was hoping his return would inspire "SOMETHING"...but alas...all he got was my crappy volley...LOL


01-09-2003, 09:28 PM
i assumed you would ditch the flower and go with the water element...


01-10-2003, 01:39 AM
sorry to let ya down.....but I was drawing a blank..I promise..the next one will be half way decent... (I hope)...:(


01-12-2003, 01:34 AM

01-13-2003, 11:50 PM

01-15-2003, 06:16 PM

01-22-2003, 02:20 PM
I don't understand, do I make an image out of the first pic, or continue from aversion's black image?
