Let's make some muted Victorian tiles! These can be used for
background fills, flood fills for graphics projects, or whatever your lil heart desires.
They're fun to make! And easy! Here is an example of a
web page set
made with them. (For this background, I made the Victorian tile layer at 75% opacity so my
text would show up better.)
Open a new image, 100 x 100, transparent background. Flood fill the image with a solid
color. (I choose #000080.)
Apply Eye Candy HSB noise (image...plug in
filters...Eye Candy...HSB noise) I used these settings:
*NOTE: Play around with these settings. You will get a
different effect every time. (Yes, the hue variation here is 62. The higher the hue
variation is, the stranger the colors that come out atcha. Blue tile above had a much
lower hue variation.)
Now use the kaleidoscope filter in PSP.
I used these settings:
*NOTE: Play around with any of these settings except Scale
Factor, Number of Orbits and Radial Suction.
Save as a .gif file. Tah Dah! If you want to
see how your wallpaper tiles, open a new image, 400x400, transparent background and flood
fill with your new creation. Here's how mine turned out:
