Cannon Knitting Mill

This building is said to have been built in about 1860 and operated as a knitting mill for many years. Rumor has it that it has been sold to a developer who will turn it into condos. If so, it would have a lot of pluses, close to the city center, a park out behind and solid construction. On the other hand the neighborhood is a bit rough.

Fun with Pixel Bender

Filed under: Graphic,Processing Tips,Reviews,Video — Tags: , , , , — Harold Stiver @ 6:00 am

Adobe offers a free plugin called Pixel Bender which allows filters to be written and run on a number of their products. These effects may be run in Photoshop, After Effects and Flash.

You can download the plug-in for PS CS4 at Adobe and for PS CS5 at Adobe. You can find free filters to run at Pixel Bender Exchange. Some of my favorites follow:


The Droste Effect

The Droste effect is where an image has a smaller image of itself which has another smaller image of itself, and so on. It is named after a cocoa manufacturer who used it on their package labeling. There are settings that can also give you more extreme abstract views.

RippleBlock Effect

The effect to defaults make ripples in the image. I think it gives the most interesting results by increasing the amplitude in the x and y axis to about three time the defaults.

This effect creates some stunning burst patterns from images. Images with bold colors seem to work best.

Christmas Header

One of the best ways to learn about some of Photoshop’s more advanced features is to follow through some of the excellent tutorials to be found online. The Christmas header above was constructed by adapting an excellent Tutorial at Adobe Tutorials. Some of the interesting things in this tutorial are blending options for layer, use of the pen tool, and custom shapes.
