Whether you are into steampunk style, or just like to work with various mechanisms that use gears, creating new shapes might be a little tedious.

In order to win these tubes, add a comment on this Facebook post telling us how you would use gears and cogwheels (remember, add a comment, not just a Like!)

For a sample, I created a frame using various cogwheels generated by the script. I resized them, added a texture using Filter Forge, added a bevel, and shadows. I also had fun adding chains to connect those wheels.
The download includes a pspimage format with a mask group to add your photo, but also a simple png file if you don't have PaintShop Pro to open the pspimage file.
