Thanks so much to Philipp Spoeth aka DragonFly for a truly wonderful plug-in.  You will need to download his Sinedots plugin.  Unzip it to where you keep all your other plug-ins.

  Sinedots plugin
This was the first tutorial written using the Sinedots plug-in. There have been many tuts written since and there are now at least 2 Sinedots user groups .  Due to the overwhelming  response, Philipp has developed a Sinedots II.   Thanks to all who have used my tutorial and for the many kind comments.
