Here we go Shadow!
 

  My graphics usually are collages made by images that i find on the net pasted into backgrounds that i make with the Terralogic texture maker.
   This may be considered as cheating but i think that since i take the original images out of their context the new assembled ones get to have a personal meaning (sometimes) at least for me.
   Sometimes i treat parts or the whole image with either Terralogic or Paint shop .I like to add "noise" to the finished image sometimes as it makes things a bit less flashy.
  Still learning Paintshop but im beginning to get the grip of the layer function.
 Also trying out some of the free  progs posted in here and i like them as well.It seems like all progs have much the same functions but they differ in the result you get and that is nice.
   Since i ölike doing photography and have loads of black and white negatives id like to try and use that in my images too.
  Heard of a Canon image scanner which was really cheap to buy that also was capable to read photo negatives.That sounds cool.Would open new ways to work if i`d get one of those.

Sounds great that scanner.
no need to qualify your art methods , I do the same quite often, I love making space back grounds using pics from nasa and some original too, if it works,,,.great.
I've even warped pics of people and things in various ways to create patterns etc

Don't know how well-known a technique this is--came up with it on my own, but for all I know, it could be pretty common.

Apps used--Photoshop and Flash.

In PS, you use a filter effect on an image and copy it over into a frame of a Flash movie. Then go back to PS and open the filter again and tweak it so that the effect moves, in effect, a frame, and copy and paste that into the second frame of your Flash movie. And on and on until you have a cool custom-made animation. Time consuming, but you can get some fairly original fx.

jack,
depending on what it is you are try to do "tween" can do the samething saving you steps and time. paste what you want to start with in the first frame and then, paste what you want to end up with and try "tween" . You may just be surprised

Very familiar with tweening. It can save a lot of time, of course, and is great for certain effects. But the effects achieved with the technique I suggested are a good deal different from what you get from tweening.
