I want to create the effect of ripples in water if something was dropped in it. I've tried a few things and can't really get it. You still have to be able to see the background image through the riplpes and for it to maybe distort a little.
Thanks heaps.

Add a new layer to the image and put a ring of concentric circles that are progressively wider (e.g. stroke 7 pixels, 10, 14, etc.) on the new layer.  Select them one by one and switch back to the background layer and use the filter that you prefer for distortion (Ripple? Ocean Ripple?  Glass?).  After each one send the rings to the back so that you can check on the progress and make sure it is satisfactory.  When you're finished delete all the temporary rings and in theory it will work the way you wanted it to.
