Image tips
2D, made with Adobe's PhotoShop 4-5 and Paint Shop Pro 4-5
These tips require EYE CANDY filter 3.0 (except 3rd). You can see the results from number before the tips. These tips can be done with several other programs too, but the tip is always written as it was done with the program which is noted after the tip. You may not find always the values which need to be set if you use other program than the one it was made with, but don't worry: the results are usually same!

1This is really simple image to do, first select the type tool and make a text you want with it (and choose a color you like). Then open the filter dialog and choose Eye Candy 3.0/Inner bevel, use the options you like (I used button with default parameters). Unselect (if selected) "Preserve transparency" from the layer where the text is. And finally select Airbrush Tool and brush you like (I used some kind of star-brush) then just poke it to positions you like! Nombreux!

2This is another simple image to do, first select the type tool and make a text you want with it. Select the Gradient Tool and set options into it (I used Yellow, Violet, Orange and Blue) and color the image with it (BEFORE COLORING it, check that layer's "Preserve transparency" is checked). Then open the filter dialog and choose Eye Candy 3.0/Inner bevel, use the options you like (I used button with default parameters). (*) After that check that layer's "Preserve transparency" is unchecked and open the filter dialog and choose Eye Candy 3.0/Fire, use the options you like (I used default parameters) (*). Repeat the spot * if you want your image to be more HOT!

3 First select white as your foreground color then select text and type the text you want with it. Choose Image/Noise/Add, try using options random and 50%. Go to Image/Blur/Motion blur and use something like 40° and 33 pixels as options. We are almost done here just select (be sure that you have white selected as your foreground color) Image/Other/Hot wax coating. Looks quite dark, well lets colorize it! Go to Colors/Colorize and choose options you like (the blue is Hue: 165 and Saturation: 255). And finally if you want a small effect which brings the image to live choose Image/Effects/Drop shadow and use the settings you like (I used Blue, 100, 12.2, 2 and 2). Neat isn't it?

4 The start is like on 3rd tip... First select white as your foreground color then select text and type the text you want with it. Choose Image/Noise/Add, try using options random and 50%. Go to Image/Blur/Motion blur and use something like 40° and 33 pixels as options. Select (be sure that you have white selected as your foreground color) Image/Other/Hot wax coating. Looks quite dark, well lets colorize it! Go to Colors/Colorize and choose options you like (the green I used is Hue: 84 and Saturation: 124). Now lets use the Image/Plug-in filters/Eye candy 3/Inner bevel filter, set the options you like. And finally lay a green glass over the text by going to Image/Plug-in filters/Eye candy 3/Glass, again use the setting you like. Very cool!

3D, made with 3D studio max and Bryce 3D
This is the 3D-section, this contains 3D images made by me mostly (you can sen your works to me, I'll publish them to here). I have made the with 3D studio max or Bryce 3D, they are the best 3D-programs ever made by human being. As you may see from the pictures; the best of 3D are light-effects. And another thing you can see from my 3D-images; almost all images have something to do with religion(s) or nature. Of course I have done more 3D images than these 6 (e.g different versions of my logo), but I just selected these... Have fun!
