Thanks! No idea whose fingerprint; just one I found in Google image search.
I'm sure this could be done in The GIMP or some such program as well as Photoshop.
I used the "Minimum" filter to thicken ridges and "Maximum" to thin them. I didn't select the bits manually, though! To make the selection, I copied a high-contrast cat picture and, in the fingerprint image, pasted it into Quick Mask (where white becomes 100% selected, black 0%, and grays in-between).
I jump on any chance to get a plug in. This is my stuff. Never had a reaction to the novella yet. Perhaps it's lousy? Too long? Boring? Some people like some of the poems.
I've always wanted to be a writer, but never seemed to have the time to follow through with it. I cannot draw, and I don't have a very good singing voice. My kids used to beg me not to sing to them when they were little.
I like to talk, a lot, and (so I have been told)much too loudly. My mother told me when I was little, she thought I was never going to learn to talk. They wished I would learn how to. Then, when I did learn how, she wished I would learn to be quiet once in a while.
If I ever get artistic, and have something good, I won't hesitate to put it up where people can find it.
