Newbie Just a Yellow Texas flower.

I forget where I took this flower, but it was here in Texas. I used Photoshop CS4 to create my rendition from the original. Just basically used the spin technique overlaid the original and then a mask bringing back some of the original with a black brush. See what I have learned from you all.

One of these is the original and one of these is the reworked one. I still don't know which one to load first. <<<sigh>>>

Re: Just a Yellow Texas flower.

That came out pretty nice, I like the bright colors and the spin effect. It makes sense to me to have the original is first and the rendition second, not sure really if there is a convention.

Cool result Gunner; hope you don't mind humoring my binge with me. Been doing candle wax for a few days now (even made a few candle stick renders too; lol).

Re: Just a Yellow Texas flower.

Had a few tries at this one, but was hard not to wreck the original beauty of the image. Lyle that looks close to the felt painting effect I am looking for.

Re: Just a Yellow Texas flower.

Gunner went a bit doolally on this one (what is expected really the grandkids had just gone getting calmer now though )

Great shot though love the colours

Lyle, How did you manage to make this one? Can you recall what you used, etc. I absolutely love it.

Re: Just a Yellow Texas flower.

Did a few of these already Gunner. I first enhanced the Dynamic Range, then I used a Plastic Wrap Script-fu followed by GREYCstoration plugin (actually used the older version since I like it's interface better; can't find that link though).

Re: Just a Yellow Texas flower.

Gunner not up to Lyle's standards by a long shot
but had a quick play and got this which with more tweeking would get you closer
using the plastic wrap filter settings 17,11,16
not had much luck using this filter before but on flowers especially strong ones it seems to do ok
so have a mess around and see what you can come up with ?

Re: Just a Yellow Texas flower.

Thanks that works also. At least you all have given me the starting points. Lyle's need translating into Photoshop from Gimp. Now I just need to spend the rest of today, tomorrow and the next day working on this.

How can I obtain the results that amica got only using a Mac OS 10.6?

Anyone?

Gunner, the first one is simply a couple of impressionist-layers blended/mask together and a texture layer on top for the paint effect..

The second is DAP, which is currently only available for Win sys, I'm afraid.
But I believe that the curved strokes could be obtained with the liquify/free transform tools. Haven't tried as I had no need to do so yet.

Used Filter Forge tho, then liquify. Sharpened slightly in PS. Is this similar, or what?

great attempt, looks good...maybe a few black lines for more depth? Look for Palms' Sketch Action to do it for you...or dup layer, desat copy desat layer - invert - blend color dodge - gauss blur this until the lines show up - merge these 2 b/w layers put on top an blend multiply - for more effect use levels on this...

I think you did a great job anyway.

gunner, have you tried posting on the forums or using the contact form? the FF folks are pretty good about responding and fixing things. i think someone else had a similar trouble with 10.6.1... not real sure, but i think it had something to do with permissions. check the mac forum on the FF forums.

Re: Just a Yellow Texas flower.

Got it fixed. I had D/L'd a FreePak and after installing it is when my FF stopped working. Of course it happened only a week to ten days after installing Mac OS 10.6.

I had forgotten that I had a back-up copy in my 1 TB hard drive and after copying that over it works just fine.

To cool for words. Abstract eh?

Now that I have your attention maybe you all could point me in the right direction if I can come up with the right words to describe what I am after.

I have been floundering around trying to search out tutorials on how to add dimension to images using Photoshop CS4 on a Mac. I have noticed a few herein from time to time but at the tome I didn't think it was time for me to take the time to learn it. Do you all have time for this? Guess that is about the extent of my ability to use the word time in a paragraph. <<<smile>>>

Re: Just a Yellow Texas flower.

Hee are some links with several types that more or less illustrate what I am trying to learn. I guess it's Bas Relief but transparent instead of opaque grey or whatever. Never learned how to use layers for this.

Re: Just a Yellow Texas flower.

George (aka gunner )

you have really answered your own question
duplicate layer
bas relief ( or emboss etc)
change blendmode to either overlay ,soft light or occasionally multiply will work
you might need to fiddle with the colour afterwards
or another way is texture mapping here is Swampy's tut

Re: Just a Yellow Texas flower.

There are some fantastic edits here! Really gorgeous....

My not-very-good attempt is just fiddling - an orton blur, dry brush, fake smudge action and texturising. I think that was it....

Re: Just a Yellow Texas flower.

gunner,

thanks, and yes, abstract/cubist/whoknowswhatthehellthatis?

for high relief, or bas relief, or just about any depth type style, try using one of the 'surface' filters in filter forge, then go under the lighting tab and crank up the 'height' slider. it will depend on the filter and how it's constructed, but many of the forge filters can accomplish a simulated greater depth.

Another go at the yellow flower using Impressionist for the paint effect.

Re: Just a Yellow Texas flower.

back in the very early days of filter forge, a couple of us stumbled on how to make some glass effect filters. i made some glass bricks and other stuff and my friend, steve, made some really colorful glass ones. after a long while, i went and revisited all that and made a very short filter as a sort of example/tutorial for making glass in filter forge. the filter is "Glass - Shower 1" and i did the flower in this.

Re: Just a Yellow Texas flower.

That is definitely a very real-like glass effect, nice. If it where painted on flat clear glass it would maybe look real until you touched it.

Re: Just a Yellow Texas flower.

Ever heard of Metal Photo? There is one company that advertises in one of my Photo mags that I subscribe to that will do Metal Photo in color or B/W. However it is not a new process by any means. I did metal photo when I ran the photo lab at the U.S. Air Force Academy in the early 70's.
