Nick and Tom this is for you. Never want it to be known that I take the easy way out, or don't finish a challenge

Photoshop
This procedure, added to first entry. Repaired bk/grnd with clone tool. Selected good parts of the large tree with polygon tool- duplicated, manipulated, erased until the pieces seemed to fit. Used clone tool to shape hill (mountain) on the left. Selected one of the smaller trees on the right with polygon tool, duplicated and placed on left. Flattened. Opened in Painter Classic and applied surface texture.
For some strange reason, I tried to upload at the same size as the first entry, and it was too large. Had to reduce file size, and size of pic. Some quality was lost in doing this. First entry much better quality. Oh well, maybe I will understand all this some day Thanks

Hi Wanda - Thanks for the special effort to come back to this one. And actually, your decision to put a texture on just the backdrop is interesting because it emphasizes that it is a painting.

As always, of course, a great job.

Forgot to mention: I think the reason your file size got bigger is because in this second photo there is more information with all the background elements. JPEG can not compress a busy photo as much.

Thanks so much, Tom, and your welcome Think your right on the bigger file dilemma. Thanks for the info!! I don't think I will ever understand, it seems the more I read the more confused I get Thanks again.

Nick, thank you so much. "What program did you use for uploading?" Well, my husband said, "Explorer", now if that's a dumb answer, he's the dummy not me (grin) Appreciate your comments

Top job Wanda, Never thought to use painter classic to add texture to photos. Learn something everyday on this site.

Yup, took one look and knew this was Wanda's. You have a level of perfection that is always such a treat to see. You definately put your heart and soul in every picture you do. The fact that you didn't give up on it proves that.

Imagix, thank you so much for your kind words Yeah, sometimes I prefer the textures in Painter Classic. I guess it really doesn't make much difference where you get your texture, right Thanks!

DJ, thank you so much, and again you are just too kind, but I do appreciate your encouraging words that's for sure. I'm sorry I haven't been able to reply before now, I have been having the dreaded computer problems. Still working on a few bugs! OOOOOOOOOOOh, if I didn't need a computer what I would do with it!!!!!! Thanks, DJ

Wanda I agree, I dont think I have seen anything but outstanding work from you. I cant belive how persistent you have to be with every tool in Photoshop, but I am learning.
