Hello my friends, in this instructable we will be experimenting with Photoshop, using fun effects to create your very own abstract photo.

Me + first instructable = excited.

Photoshoppers!! Feel free to experiment with this destructable. Add your own twists! I would love to see what you come up with. Try using levels instead of curves, will that work?

Step 1: Setting Up...

All you need it photoshop on a runnig computer, and thats it.
I'm using Photoshop 7, but any photoshop is sure to work. I'm not too familiar with gimp, but i believe it should also work.

Set up a "New..." file (Ctrl +N). I started of with 800 X 600 pixel file

We are going to need a black background so select the color black and click Alt + Backspace to fill the canvas.

I use something similar to make art objects for my blog bwkgraphics.org Most of the the time I use the twirl to achieve partial results and then cut off a portion and replicate that part on different layers to make the end results Ps don't forget masking that works well and in polar coordinates try the reverse of polar coordinates for some new aspects of a layer.
Thanks man, ill def give that a try.
i dor remember whial filters and gradients i played with forever ago but it resulted in some cool wall papers<br/>&lt;a href=&quot;http://viewmorepics.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=viewImage&amp;friendID=36977065&amp;albumID=1581191&amp;imageID=27772180&quot;&gt;&lt;img src=&quot;http://hotlink.myspacecdn.com/images01/87/17cb3211a39c53ca4db0a12eb159cf28/m.jpg&quot; alt=&quot;&quot; /&gt;&lt;/a&gt;&lt;br&gt;&lt;a href=&quot;http://viewmorepics.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=viewImage&amp;friendID=36977065&amp;albumID=1581191&amp;imageID=27771958&quot;&gt;&lt;img src=&quot;http://hotlink.myspacecdn.com/images01/55/7b6f52ee04b54b3899aede0b454b4f33/m.jpg&quot; alt=&quot;&quot; /&gt;&lt;/a&gt;<br/>
