No

The competition has three separate threads
- This one - which is for discussion;
- The voting thread, which stays locked closed until voting starts;
- The entries thread here where you should post your rendition....if you hurry you'll be first!!

Good luck,

Is that the History Brush, or the ART History Brush?

- If it's the History Brush then my advice will always be the same - Don't use it ever!! Putting things in layers is always better practice.

- If it's the ART History Brush then fine, welcome to the fun side of PS.

Everyone can feel free to email their favorite vendor and say "Hey, why don't you contact Doug over at RP about donating a prize?". If you think this month's contest is tough, try asking a complete stranger to give you their products for free
doug,

i contacted Ford, G.M. and Chrysler. they all oddly gave me the same phone number to contact for this sort of thing: 1-800-555-lmao. so, point taken

You can choose in what order you approach it and how you plan to accomplish the tasks.
T,

Risking being awfully terribly pedantic (and getting a post from Duv about the benefits os the proximity of sand and sea water). That's not quite what I meant.

Actually it would be more like...
1. Restore (No)
2. Colorize (No)
3. Change to an oil painting (No)
1. Do an oil painting based on the original image ( )


(sorry Duv, old habits die hard)

Does anyone else think the man in the photo resembles a bit of Robert Deniro or have I been staring at this thing waaaaaay too long?

I believe Doug intended to test your restoring skills to the max verses creating an oil painting based on the original image.

Thumbs down Thanks :)

Thanks a lot to PhotoB, Steve and byRo!

PhotoB and Steve you are right ! actually I had just finished cropping it when tried to use the History brush (not Art history Brush byRo), only removed the outer frame of the original image and then thought (to start Somewhere!) to try the history brush that's when the "no-no" icon appeared

Anyway byRo, I have just realized that what I wanted was the Healing Brush. Also the first time I try to use it, I find it quite similar to the stamp tool !

I still don't understand the use of the History or History Art brushes -in a few more years perhaps ?-

Again many thanks to all for responding

Regards - Martha


P.S.: Dreamypix I find the man's face quite familiar but not to Robert de Niro, some famous achiever like Edison, Bell or maybe a US President ? Perhaps we have both been looking at it toooo long !?

Thanks, Martha! At least I know now I am not alone in staring at this thing and seeing famous faces. It was Deniros latest movie, Hide and Seek, that made me think that. He wears glasses in that one. Looks similar to me except the nose, Deniros is alittle longer. Anyways...Better go rest my eyes for a fresh look tommorrow.

Martha and Dreamypix --

I've been staring at this photo and thinking he looks like someone famous as well. To me, he looks like US President Harry Truman.
