Art, that is magnificent! Really looks like a watercolor. Please tell me exactly what you did with the dry brush. When and how was it applied?

Anxiously awaiting answer from the master.

Goldcoin's Gold

Oh, Goldcoin, that's gorgeous! It sparkles with gold! Was that just a coincidence? I also like how it's misty and soft, yet has sharp detail at the same time. Great.

Phyllis,
I'm no master - it's beginners luck
Here's the technique
Made a copy of the image
Used Dry Brush Brush Size 1
Brush Detail 8 Texture 1
Used Smart Blur
Radius 10 Threshold 50 Quality High
On the copy then
Remove Color
Smart Blur Edge Only Radius 25 Threshold 50
Invert
Past the color image into the BW Image
Blend Mode Multiply
Flatten Image
Adjust levels to taste
Boost Saturation to about 40
Texturizer with Texture set to Sandstone.

Thanks for the steps...can't believe you are so organized that you keep track so well. Now I'm even more impressed!

Still have that same question though. What exactly did you DO with that brush? Did you paint with it? If so, what color/s and what blend setting? Was it a brush or the art history brush? Or some other tool with the dry brush setting? How exactly did you "use" it is what I don't understand. Could you elaborate? Thanks.

Phyllis

Sorry Phyllis. I didn't understand what you were asking. I've never tried using brushes. In Photoshop Elements 2 there is a menu choice called filters, then Artistic, then Dry Brush. It pops up a box for the settings which I mentioned above. You click okay and it applies it to the whole image.

Oooooohhh...that explains it! Here I thought you were using Photoshop, where dry brush is a brush type, not a filter. Gosh darnit...I want that filter! It's cool! I wonder if it would work on Photoshop. Could you send the filter file from your program perhaps?

Phyllis, You're in luck. The Dry Brush filter is in Photoshop! Look under Filters->Artistic->Dry Brush. (At least it's in PS7.)

Duh. Of course it is. Thanks! It's been so long since I've used those "artistic" filters (since I've been playing with my new KPT toys) that I forgot they exist! Silly old lady with failing memory...that's me!

Phylis, I can empathize with you, well at least with the failing memory bit.
How do you find the KPT filters? I'm not a huge fan of filters, normally get by with what's in PS. I have some others but very rarely use any of them. Are they worth the money? A lot of the free ones you see on the internet are of very little use, effects I would never use. Normally, if they are any good, they cost money.

KPT--Kai's Power Tools

Frank, yes, you have to buy KPT filters.

I have five packages--KPT2.1 (no longer available I think) has a few things I use all the time, though you can do them in two or three steps without the KPT filters once you learn how.

The kaleidoscopes are in KPT3, so I am glad I have that one!

KPT5, though it is good stuff if you have a use for it, doesn't have much in it that I need very often.

KPT6 has a lot of great features I use a lot, including the awesome "equalizer" sharpener/soft blur filters, and the wonderful "materializer" which gives pics a 3D glassy or metallic look.

KPT Effects has some really great filters as well, including the very useful pyramid paint.

Keep an eye on the web for discount packages so you don't pay full price. I got the last four KPT's in a package and saved about 75%, but that offer from the andromeda.com site has expired. There will be others in the future, I'm sure.
