Default A gord kaleidoscope

OK I am not sure what I did or how I did it!!
All I know is that in trying to find a freeware program to make pure circular screenshots (i.e. with no surrounding unwanted white square)
I found an online editing website at:-
http://www.lunapic.com/editor/
To try it out the first thing to do was load up a sample image and play around with it. In the my pictures folder I selected at random the fine recent Mariposa guitar picture

I was trying to draw then save a circular shape and/or then fathom out how to save it when I inadvertently did something that somehow selected the kaleidoscope version which I then saved. As I rather enjoyed the strange effect I thought I would share it with you all, who knows maybe DSR can use it to hand out as a freebie?!!?

Sorry Dory I am not trying to muscle in on your business but you might find that website useful if you can work out what I did!!

yes well that LunaPic website is full of special picture editing effects and is a great time waster
Here is another fine example proving once again that a picture is worth a thousand bucks sorry there is only the US Dollar (no Canabucks option)

Yes well Fezo/Steve me lad if you had had to earn your US citizenship the hard way as I had to do you would have had to brush up on your US history including the names of all the previous presidents
some of whom are featured on the otherwise identical US treasury bills
Alternatively if you empty your pocket and scrutinise one of your thousand dollar bills in your loose change. you would see that In fact the president who appears on the grand bill had the unusual first name of Grover

Now give yourself a history lesson by reading

Thank you John. I will check it out when I have time. We are getting ready to release a new kaleidoscope in a week or two. Maybe this site will give us an idea for a new one. :
