If the flows are too big for the JPEG marker they won't be embedded but the farch file will be created instead (fallback archive) - this is practically what is embedded in the jpeg file and can be loaded as a project - when you select open project, you can also select Photo Reactor data archive (farch)

FANTASTIC flow Bil!!! :D

I've just spent an hour trying to put all kinds of images through it and it really works wonders like few other flows. Very amazed by this.
Thank you very much for posting this :)

Here's an image from earlier this summer run through your flow. Wonderful results with this flow :) Moody, or atmospheric is perhaps a better word, in such a beautiful way :)

Here's one more with Bil's flow (this one doesn't have it embedded because it's been resized)
What a super-flow this is! :)

Thanks for responding Oscar, does that hold true for the Perameters Building Block too. It seems that from time to time I hit a limit and can add no more controls.

Jel:
I'm glad you like it, I'm still tweaking it (especially the parameters panel) I'd like to turn it into a Virtual Effect but to do so I need to take the border and paper texture out and have them be a separate Effect. The reason is for this flow to be used to it's fullest ability with all types of images I find myself adding a Hue Shift or Blur Module before the last Alpha Building Block with Masks attached a lot. Here's an example of why below. 1st image no mask and hue adjustment, 2nd with. The 1st image has the flow with the mask set-up. (The reason the hue shift isn't applied is the mask isn't painted yet). For size reasons there is no flow in the 2nd image but it is the exact flow. (Actual masks don't seem to save with the flow anyway) I wish they did.

I might misunderstand what you're after, but you can add both the image-fileselector (for each texture image) and the "Edit mask" buttons for all mask-blocks to the parameters panel. This way you can choose your texture images and edit all masks from the parameters panel without unwrapping the virtual effect.

Jel: The problem is the adjustments are specific to each individual image. For example I may want to desaturate an area, boast a shadow area, or even need to make multiple color adjustments. I'd have to put almost every scenario I could think of in the flow with off on switches as well as multiple masks. What a mess that would be. It's best to do an edge / texture effect this way I can do any changes in between the 2 virtual effects without them effecting the paper color, texture or edge mask.

I've run into that kind of trouble myself on some flows. The more flexible I try to make them, the more complicated they become to use because you have to have more and more controls for all the various options. There is a point where that complexity just becomes more trouble than benefit.

I personally opt for the method you describe yourself; making several separate effects, that each gets more specialized to do a certain type of function rather than cover all kinds of functions. This actually is also generally easier to use I think, because sometimes you only need to adjust one specific thing and then it's more convenient when that specific thing is placed in a single effect so you don't have a ton of unrelated controls to bother with. It just is a better way of organizing the flow. Of course the downside is that it makes sharing such a flow more trouble, since, as you point out, you can't put everything in a single VFbox.

Actually I sat just the other day and thought of a node I really seem to miss often when I make flows; a router-node :)
A node where you can direct the flow in different directions. A bit like the layer-node, except more dedicated to simply routing the flow into different sub-flows, or to work as a stop'n'go (a more advanced bypass-node of sorts. The group-bypass is somewhat similar, but not quite) node that either allows or stops the flow from going into a sub-flow.

I'm still in search of my dream watercolor flow. I'm trying something a little wetter.

Any suggestions or criticism would be appreciated.
I'll post the flow as soon as I get it cleaned up and get some suggestions.
