Alien Skin News: May 2011

On a recent trip to the scrumptious David's Dumpling & Noodle Bar, we noticed some huge beautiful prints on the walls. Our friend Simon Griffiths made them using Blow Up. Even up close they look great!

You can see the prints in our article or visit Simon's blog or web site to see more of his work. By coincidence, we recently wrote a support article on choosing print size.

Victoria Kelly runs a successful portrait studio and often gives us feedback on our products. During a recent visit we were talking more about the photography business than software design. Jeff turned the conversation into an interview that you can read in our blog.

Survey

We would like to ask you a few questions to help us better serve you. Just click here! We will randomly choose one person who finishes the survey to receive a $200 gift card for B&H Photo.

Jiggle and Shower Door

Dancer

Many years ago we had filters for randomly warping images called Jiggle and Shower Door. Someone recently asked about them so I made a tutorial for achieving those effects with the Ripples filter in Eye Candy 6. The article contains presets that you can download.

Best of Flickr

As always there are plenty of beautiful photos added to our group pool since the last newsletter. We made a blog post highlighting a few of the additions. If you don't frequent our Flickr Group, then here's a chance to see what you've missed.

You can find more fun in the blog with a Radiolab video and marshmallow peeps.

The blog is our fountain of information that feeds the newsletter. If you use an RSS reader then grab the feed. We post most articles to Facebook, Twitter, and sometimes the Flickr group.
