The above picture looks like a painting, but it was created with a Jasc's Paint Shop Pro. Pretty cool, eh? (Jasc was purchased by Corel, so now it's called Corel Paint Shop Pro.) Corel sends an occasional note with hints, and the latest one was about making paintings out of digital images.
(This picture is Deer Creek on Hwy 32, Northern California, low elevation of Cascade Mountains.)
I tried to put the 'painting' in a document and print it, but it was so big my printer doesn't have enough memory to handle it, so it clogged up my print queue and won't print. Now I have to figure out how to flush my print queue :-(
