Tutorial 09 .Find Edges + Spatter
Original image taken from Photo-art mini-challenge 98 (Lighthouse):
1. Duplicate Background (new layer name: Spatter)
2. Layer Spatter: Apply Brushstrokes > Spatter (10,5)
2A. CTRL + F (to apply step 2 again)
3. Duplicate Background layer again (new layer name: Find Edges)
4. Drag the new layer to the top of the layer stack
try this keyboard shortcut:
While holding down ALT+CTRL+SHIFT, click the ] key. Not of great value when in this mode, but an important shortcut to know if you build actions.
5. Anyway... Find Edges layer: Run Stylize > Find Edges
6. Find Edges layer: Change the layer blend mode from Normal to Overlay.
* This is another easy method of creating "photo-art."
* Will it work on all images? Nope. Will it work on some? Sure.

Taking things a little farther...
This modification is NOT an attempt to recreate a particular style.
Here's a variation you might try "just because."
1. Duplicate the Spatter layer (new name: Spatter+DS+Angled Strokes)
2. Turn off Spatter layer (click eyeball)
3. Spatter+DS+Angled Strokes layer: Apply Noise > Dust and Scratches filter (3,0).
This combines the spatter marks into (what look like) blobs of paint. I like the D&S filter better than Gaussian Blur for this purpose because D&S seems to retain distinct colors better, while Gblur turns seems to turn everything into a muddy haze.
4. Spatter+DS+Angled Strokes layer: Apply Brushstrokes > Angled Strokes (36,25,1).
This gives the softened blotches some "movement."
Pretty cool, huh?
You are, of course, permitted to further experiment. In fact I encourage it!
...borrowed from another thread.
How the attached image was created:
1. Followed steps in the first post in this thead.
2. To the Spatter layer, applied Artistic > Fresco (2,8,1).
Yikes: Too dark.
Started experimenting with Find Edges layer blend modes...
3. Change the layer blend of the Find Edges layer to Exclusion.
