When creating kaleidoscope designs in my kaleidoscope program, I can save them as jpg (picture) files. By saving these files, I have a copy of all the kaleidoscopes I thought were really cool. I have created hundreds of these files which I can then edit in assorted ways by opening them in Photoshop Elements. The first and easiest thing to do with your kaleidoscopes is to see how they look in different colors. I copied a kaleidoscope to a new layer and used the cookie cutter tool to crop the top layer. By selecting the cropped layer and changing the colors of that layer, I began to get new and more interesting kaleidoscopes. I printed some of these to fabric and stitched the designs as is seen by the set displayed below.
