    Thanks for the info. I ws able to figure out how to use this in Photoshop Elements, by selecting "more options". Not exactly the same, but works the same, with less features. I've been using a much more time consuming method invloving TEXT and cutting and pasting lines of periods.

    Wonderful - that's it exactly! Invaluable tip - easy when you know how to; impossible even to imagine if you don't. Have tried it and memorized it (saved the image of course; wonderful form for quick-tutorial, since you can just open it in Photoshop while working).

    Many thanks, Leif

    JJ-I played with it a bit--you could set it up to make large dia circles, such as 40 or so px and then go back and cover each with a smaller dia in a contrasting color. I tried playing with the percentages vs size, but the thing is not quite accurate enough to exactly center each part. You can also adjust it to make ovals (at any angle or even lines.--by making very thin ovals.)

    another thought--make a row of thirty pix or so circles, and use the Stylize--find edges--filter. Instant portholes.

    I select airbush and give it a few streaks at about 10% opacity and set to multilply. Then I take the magic wand tool, set at about a tolerance of 5 or 6 and select random spots. Next I use the stroke command, at one pixel and color set just a bit darker than what I just used for the airbrush. that outlines those areas with a very slightly darker shade that nearly blends into the background. If I want to slightly differentiate between two panels, I use the magic wand tool set to about forty to outline the panel. The I use the same slightly opaque brush strokes to slightly darken around the edges.

    Wow! Is that really possible? Yes, obviously. There's the answer for larger rivets, even including 3D-effects. Paint one, define as brush, draw any number of lines or single rivets. Very good tidings! This technique class is advancing by leaps and bounds! Thank you very much, Mr. Teacher!

    Leif

    PS. And the format for these lessons is still great. I keep on saving images, now in a special folder, of course.
