Looks less like a woodcut and more like an engraving. Pretty cool though. You can then burn that on a silkscreen and trick all your friends into thinking you went through the laborious process of engraving a print.

Ι'm interested in using this filter as a rough line guide to go in and actually digital-ink every little bit in manga studio afterwards.

I think you're right actually, Cure.

Helm, I've only gotten it to work with Photoshop CS2 and lower. Tried CS3; no luck. But yes to Windows 7 x64.

Yikes. Why?

Gotta work at 2x or 4x, then scale down end-result with smoothing interpo.

Hello! Sorry, I know this was discussed a thousand times before but is there a way to get back to the original layout ? All I see now is a plain default theme that doesn't really look cool :)

I finally got around to coding that colorpicker script for GrafX2 under Linux, based on 'grabc' program. (If you're using MacOSX, there is already one). FYI: GrafX2's interface has to work on a lot of platforms, so they have minimal access to platform-specific stuff (eg. being able to look at the contents of other windows); the built in colorpicker is only effective inside GrafX2.

I made both cycling (moves to next color index after picking) and non-cycling versions. Usually use 'cycling', because I mainly want to pick ramps rather than single colors. I use this for example to pick colors from GPick's "blend colors' panel:


Both versions of the script are available here.
Note: you'll need to have the grabc package installed first.
If you insist on being pessimistic about your own abilities, consider also being pessimistic about the accuracy of that pessimistic judgement.

Here's a thing:

http://www.theregister.co.uk/2013/04/29/err_act_landgrab/

The UK just passed a law that allows for commercial use of images under copyright where information about the owner is unavailable.  This affects users here at Pixelation since we often upload images and edits to image sharing hosts.  The article is rather strongly against the new law.
