    Just looked it up! Looks pretty awesome, but I don't have any Apple devices. On that one I just used two Topaz Studio filters plus liquify in PS on this original image of a fiery sunset from a couple of days ago:

    Back at Flickr there is a themed group, "Sliders Sunday," to which are posted images taken to extremes. The sliders in editing are slud way over.
    Below is a recent post of mine after reading in Harold and Phyllis Davis' book The Photoshop Darkroom. Worked on in the LAB color space, with inverted L channel and inverted B channel.

    dragonfly at the River of Lights


    This came about as I noticed something in my regular processing. I regularly create a LAB version of a photo, along with the RGB, and I usually do sharpening in the L channel of the LAB. That process includes using Filter > Stylize > Find Edges to create a mask through which the sharpening is done.
    The edges start out black on white then get inverted for the mask, but I noticed how unusual the black edges were here.
    So when everything was finished, I duplicated the image. I blurred the colour areas.
    Then I copied that mask used for sharpening on top of the blur, inverted it back to black edges and used the layer properties Blend If to get rid of most of the layer's white background.
    Other stuff needed to be done to get the blurred colors to pop a little as blurring fades intensity.

    And this is the not so extravagantly edited image.
