  Look on your Desktop for a folder named Kaleidoscope. If it is there, good, if not, let me know. Open Photoshop. Open your actions pallet. At the top right of the actions pallet there is a small triangle with a bunch of small lines. Click on it and go down to LOAD ACTION. Find the action in the kaleidoscope folder on your desktop.It is named: kaleidos.atn. After it is loaded, select it and hit the play button. When it asks for a wedge, look in the same folder the action came out of. When it asks for a graphic, navigate to one of yours. Experiment with transforming the image within the wedge. Press the play button at the bottom of the actions pallet. After the action has created the kaleidoscope image, increase the canvas size by one inch both in width and in height (IMAGE>CANVAS SIZE). Create a new layer under the image.Fill it with black (EDIT>FILL) choose black. You can use a color other than black if it looks better. Try a variety of images.Try resizing and rotating the source image.Turn in the best three.
