    That’s a great texture image. Is that an istockphoto gem? Where did you find that image? Most steel texture images are smooth. The scratches and blemishes make it more gritty.

    Nice. I like the tutorial. But It’s really cool to watch you work and see how you do things. You also used a couple of features that I’ve never seen used before, so I get to mess with those now.

    It’ so coooooooooool! The one I was looking for, but… May I use exactly the same effect to create a logo for the web but also for printing with big dimensions and resolutions maintaining always the same quality both on web with small images and for printing with big ones? I mean: when creating once, may I use it for all my purposes? Thanx
