Here is my first attempt. I did this two days ago & I like it.
But now when I follow the directions & use ripple (on default settings)
I get this effect & I'm not sure how to get the result as shown in fencepost's first post
I did save the original as xcf but when I load it, it hasn't retained the history, so no joy there.
If I have posted this in error, would a mod mind moving it to a more appropriate section? Thanx
