Thanks, Mary, Yes, Maine. Marshall Point Light to be exact.

Hey everyone :)

I've made an attempt at an AOP. I hope I've done everything correctly so that it works for everybody.

JEL_SparklingStars_01_DAP32.jpg
JEL_SparklingStars_01_DAP32.jpg (82.58 KiB) Viewed 5456 times


I'm calling it:
"JEL_SparklingStars_01_DAP32"

I'm naming it according to this convention: Author, AOP name, AOP version, minimum DAP version.
(So as you can see it is for both DAP versions)

It can be downloaded here: http://jelstudio.dk/DAP/

Feel free to upload the file to the cafe or elsewhere.

Since this is my first attempt I don't know if I've done everything correctly, so please let me know if it doesn't work.

The AOP is mainly for close-up well-lit, or rather EVENLY lit, portraits (if you have any dominating white or bright spots they tend to rob all the paint-strokes from the rest of the image. In such cases you should guide the paint-procedure manually)

Have fun :)

JEL - your new AOP looks interesting.
It's always good to see new players in the DAP forums.
All photos I use are my photos unless otherwise noted in the post.

How were you able to get the stars to not overlap? Very cool result. I've been on a packed circle binge and quest for several years now (on/off), but really hit it heavy the past week. Wonder if your AOP can be coaxed to do packed circles instead? :)

edit: ahh; there still is overlap. The sparkle edges just does a good job at hiding some of that. Still a very cool AOP. Just did this one of my Dad using it. Again, thanks for sharing. :)

@anecessaryevil; Thank you :) And also thanks to everyone else uploading addons. I've had great pleasure with many of the different ones for quite a while now. Just haven't tried making my own until recently :) I hope I can come up with more as time goes by and I progress in skills :)

@lylejk; I must say the picture of your dad works amazingly well with the SparklingStars AOP :) . The clear color-definition between shirt, face, cap (and the caption on the cap) and background is perfect. I haven't even gotten that good results with some of my own pictures I've used it on. I'm happy to see it works so well :)

I took a look at the 'packed circle' style you mentioned (and noticed you're active on other forums on that topic ;) ). Anyway, I can't get DAP to do what I suspect you're after (different sized circles placed randomly but not overlapping each-other). However, I did manage to get an AOP done that can place evenly sized circles on a uniform grid. Probably not what you're after, but maybe it can be useful anyway.

It is available on my DAP addon page: http://jelstudio.dk/DAP/
(the direct-link is: http://jelstudio.dk/DAP/AOP/JEL_GlassMarbles_01_DAP32.dpk)

I decided to call it "Glass marbles" :)

The input-image MUST be square for the marbles to be placed correctly. And the output canvas size must be set at the default "6 mega-pixel web gallery" preset. If you stray from those 2 prerequisites the results become rather random (perhaps that could also be useful for somethings, who knows).

Jel,
it is very good and beauty,
but as you said we need different size and shape brushes with Not Overlap options for big size posters.
there is an option now:
Quality:
Sets the speed vs. precision. With higher quality the painter will try to position the brush stroke as
precisely as it can.
I think it can have more power for putting brushes in empty spaces.

I used a Low Frequency Even Script-fu on my Dad (original on top layer set to color) before feeding it into your preset Jel. You said that your preset worked best on even lighting, and I've seen nothing better to make a picture have even lighting then using this Script-fu. Also, I do like the resulting look of your marbles preset, but it would be more cool if they could be placed packed, but I know the limitations. I usually use a Voronoi Stipple program (and a lot of additional convolutions; lol) to create these, then I pack them closer using a Liquid Rescale (Content-aware) plugin available for GIMP. Below's an example that I did several months back; just click on the image for it's Flickr (and links to higher rez result). :)

Hahaha :D I just found out GIMPressionist can do the exact same type of image(*) in Gimp as my glass-marbles AOP.

(*)equal-sized circles placed/packed in a uniform pattern with the average color of the underlying picture shining through.


@smmsamm; Thanks :)


@lylejk; I downloaded the "Low Frequency Even" script and it seems very useful to run it on images before putting them through the SparklingStars AOP :) . Thanks a lot for the tip :)

Great picture there, and I see what you mean :) It looks like you've placed a thousand glass-marbles or water-droplets on top of the image. And the random placements does indeed make the image much more dynamic.
I've googled around but I can't find anything that can produce such an effect from photos.

It seems like the way to go would be to utilize some type of circle inversion fractal algorithm that bases it's output on the input-image (that's beyond me though) and looks something like this:
ImageImage
Or maybe some type of 'gravity roll-off' induced by the brushes, so that each new painted brush was pushed away from the already painted brushes (that would probably require new code in DPP though). If you look at the images I posted here, and imagine you're looking at them from above and that they are inflated half-spheres, then all the smaller balls would roll down the big ones and place themselves around their edges :) If each brush in the AOP produced such a repellent effect (perhaps based on their level of gray, which is already used to determine transparency) then I think it could be achieved. I'm just guessing though, but hey :)

Hey Jel; I've been on this quest for years on and off. I recently pushed it again and started this thread at GIMPChat. Lots of good info there. The best that I've seen to create rand circles anyway is Perculator, but I don't have an iPod/iPad so it's out of the realm of posibilities for me. About to end my quest once again until a PC app comes my way though, but maybe you might be interested. Also, I like these Poincare like packed orbs that you showed by the way. Seen similar ones before. Did you create them, and, if so, what software did you use to do so? :)
