I can re-enable the AOP's if they are in demand.

As for the public domain question, all of my AOP's are in the public domain, they are for everyone's enjoyment.\

Actually, there are no silly AOPs - we just havev to figure out when and on wahr pitures to use them - and with what kind of settings. You your Renoir-AOP is my all-time-favorite, but I had to tweak it a little bit concerning a mysterious behavior wit some nreds...

Great to have you around again! Happy New Year!

Cool to see you post again Andy. I don't know who would give your work bad ratings, but I can't say what I'm thinking about those folks right now because of forum rules. lol

Happy New Year to you too. :)

Most of the are brilliant... I think there's one I don't like (it works fine up to about 3000 strokes, then just smudges to black mess after that).
I'd never give it a poor rating though.. someone else might love it.

If I don't like something like that, I just don't use it!

Ratings, to me, are for things you buy, to warn others away (or tell them of good things) - they shouldn't apply to freebies!

Please, keep going, your stuff is great (even the one i don't like is great up to 3000 strokes..hehehe).

Happy New Year, Andy. You and your contributions to the forum are greatly missed. And I still use many of your "silly" AOPs much to my enjoyment. <Big Smile>

Beer Caps

Postby lylejk » Tue Jan 03, 2012 3:19 am

I got the set from here (lots of work to extract and then apply mask, but still faster then extracting them myself) but they got them from here. Been wanting to do a bottlecap AOP. Kept it compatible with 32-bit DAP. :)

edit: modified AOP file for easier extraction to canvas in GIMP. Added hint of drop shadow to the caps too. Link below is new so if you loaded the AOP pack prior to Jan 3, 2012, 8:05am, then reload. One of your steps will be to auto level since the whites are a little darker (again part of my scheme for white removal when doing alternative canvas in GIMP). The extraction technique involves duplicating for 3 layers (you have to add alpha channel to top 2 layers) setting the Top layer to Light and Bottom layer to Darken and running Color to Alpha {default white) on bottom layer and running Threshold to Alpha on bottom layer set to 1. Click here for a result using that technique. :)

Bottle Caps: http://ubuntuone.com/0PzEMJYG5mlF5phHAIso8N

Now I have to admit that I did do some post processing (hint of drop shadow effect and a few additional things for added dimension). It would be wonderful to add drop shadow feature in DAP for object based AOPs (do I ask for too much? lol). :)

Here's my latest "Funky" series AOP. HD Only - sorry but 32-bit DAP doesn't provide the necessary control. It doesn't attempt to mimic any artist or style. The default (oil) palette creates (duh!) an oil painting. The color palette is textured/embossed with brushstrokes captured from the Vangogh HD AOPs and runs at the max "dry" setting. The second palette is not textured and runs at full "wet" setting. The brushes are the same for both. Some of the larger brushes are from the one of the sets previous posted here by "Loadus". Will wait for any comments or complaints from the peanut gallery here before posting to the DAP Cafe. The file is really big. :( Like 48 mb but I don't have time right now to recompress the palettes and start over. Sorry. Unzip the file and use DAP to load the resulting .dpk file. Happy Painting!

Glad you like the AOP Gene. I like the results you've come up with. I saw this lighthouse last summer. Was it Maine?
