It's nice to see everyone including the steps they took to get their end result. My printer is busy again today
1. Made 2 duplicates of the background.
2. Ran Artistic--Palette Knife on the bottom copy.
3. Ran Texture--Photo copy on the top copy. Reduced opacity by half and changed the blending mode--I think I settled on color burn in the end.
4. Added a hue/saturation adjustment layer on top and reduced the saturation a little over half way down.
5. Painted with black on the hue/saturation layer to get the color back in the people.
Very interesting results.
I'm trying to recreate, but am havig some difficulties. Something like
C. Copy of BG + Dry brush (Luminosity, ??%)
B. Copy of BG + Smudge Stick (Luminosity, ??%)
A. Copy of BG + Spatter (Luminosity, ??%)
...then flattened and apply Craquelure.
What opaicty %'s (approx) are you using on the Dry Brush, Smudge Stick and Spatter layers?
It's one of the oil paint textures I made a while back. Chuck likes to use the Van Gogh one (a lot...hehe). This one came before that.
You can find those two and one more here:
And the original texture in vertical format here:
Jill, you've done an excellent rendition here...very nice indeed!
Reverse layer A and C...spatter should be just under levels.
Dry Brush: Brush Size 2, Detail 8, Texture 1
Smudge Stick: Stroke 2, Highlight 0, Intensity 10
Spatter: Radius 10, Smoothness 5
As I've said before, I'm still experimenting with this. One thing I don't understand is that with Spatter as the next to the top layer, turning of the other filterd layers doesn't seem to have any effect, at least that I could tell. It's possible that you could eliminate the dry brush and smudge stick layers and get the same result.
I'll have to check that out.
I need to fix the instructions I forgot a color change on one layer and a few ohter things.
Curves 165 - 213
Dup lightened copy
turn off bottom (orig. layer)
top copy - find edges layer mode color dodge image- adj. -invert filter - gaussian blur 4.5
merge visible layer
turn org. back on and copy
move to top torn edge 25- 11-17 (color pallete needs to be front B7AOB5 background color 92877F) - luminosity
copy orig move to top - filter artistic -cutout 4-4-2 multiply opacity 100%
copy cutout layer - poster edge 2-1-2
layer mode - luminosity - opacity 65%

Beautifull submissions so far!
desataurate, adjust levels and playing with the lighting to get this dreamy effect.
What did you do to achieve the results in your second version? (We're trying to provide enough detail so rookies can follow along, too.)
Yes, indeed I forgot to post the steps for my second submission!
I used PSP for this one. I copied the image without the air on a second layer, used the aged newspaper effect on both. Adjusted the levels to make the top layer a bit darker. On the first layer I used the lighting effect on the upper left corner with a color I picked from the picture. Adjusted the opacity on the second layer.
