Crystal background tutorial
Posted 04 February 2006 - 07:57 PM
Anyways here is how it is done:
Background # 2: Crystals
To make a crystal type background start a new template, now go to filters->Artistic->Cubism and hit OK when it pops up. (For larger crystals fool around with the cubism effects)
The screen should be filled with small grayish cubes as shown below if done correctly.
Next go to Filters->Edge Detect and hit OK when it pops up.
Step 2:Coloring and creating crystals
It should now resemble the below image, all grey and gem like.
Now to add some color: Go to filters->Color->Filter Pack-> Click on Hue-> select and adjust your color.
Now your done, examples are below.
Feel free to show off your work with my tutorial. :)

But you'll be happy to know, they referenced your tutorial!
That's good to hear. Someone else on here stole one of my other tutorials without crediting me. As long as credit is given, and its not a direct copy + paste, I'm just fine with that.
Thanks for the comments everyone. I'm glad that you like it. :)

I'm glad that you like the effect.
(please don't steal my idea)
Sure I don't mind. Just if someone asks where you got the design from, you can refer to this tutorial or my screen name.
