I have updated my Ripples macro originally posted under Tutorials. I am now posting under Resources, since it is really delivering a sort-of-finished product rather than a 'How to'.

The new version has three parameters:

a controls vertical spacing of the ripples. Reducing the a parameter increases the ripple frequency (reduces the wavelength).

b controls the horizontal variation of ripple amplitude across the width of the image. Small values of b make the ripples change a lot across the image. For large values (~=1) the changes cycle two or three times across the image.

c affects ripple complexity. This is very much a suck-it-and-see parameter. A value of one adds no complexity, a vale of 1 does.

Here is an original image (Tewkesbury Mill inverted):

And with the macro applid with a-1, b=0.5 and c-0.5:

I have to admit that the results I have had with this macro are varied. Sometimes it is very impressive, but for other images it is definitely not!

Here is the macro as a single file and as a library:

Ripples.afmacro

Ripples.afmacros

I have been looking at the Distortions macro in the Macro Pack with mixed results. I have got it to perform, but not consistently. It appears to have no visible effect on the Tewkesbury Mill image.

John, Sorry to say :

Neither Macro works on my iMac. The one for the Library (Ripples.macroS) returns this message, see attachment.

The one named ".macro"  does nothing at all, doesn't import,doesn't return any message. I'm using Photo v 1.6.7., not the Beta.Macroformat.png.4ca4bb60d3c9aaa689b459846f01db96.png
