Jeff:

Glad you gave this one a go, too. Interesting results this time from your bottomless toolbox!

Sheri:

I know what you mean. Sometimes I can spend 3 hours on something and it looks not so good. On others I get lucky and whip out something pretty decent in less than a half hour. Go figure!

Sorry, we're stuck with 100KB limit on pics, so we do what we can. Good practice for when we get an image with a decent number of pixels to work with.

Hey, Pinobot:

Welcome to RetouchPRO. I've been admiring your handiwork here and a couple more creations you posted. You've got a great touch and unique style.

RE:

Are these Nik filters? I don't recognize the names.

Again, welcome. Look forward to seeing more of your work.

~Danny~

Hi, i use PSP8 and just got into photography again. Mainly because of my father, he collects photographs of fishingboats and wants to pull them of the web but most of them being are in a terrible state. Incredible how much is changed in just a few years.

The original is so beautiful it's a shame to do ANYTHING to it.

I didn't want to get too far away from the original so all I did was to run it through Virtual Painter's oil paint filter set on SUBTLE for everything but the focus, which was set on INTENSE with a fine canvas texture.

Then I softened it a tad.

Watch out when she gets to be a teenager!

Amy,

Nice soft painted look.

I wish I had the full version of Virtual Painter. I only have collage and watercolor. I think it came with PSP7.

Amy--you did a beautiful job with VP oil. The soft look compliments the little girl's photo wonderfully. I agree--she's going to break hearts.

To Neve

Wow, Neve, your creation is simply fantastic! I have Paint Alchemy and still trying to figure out how to use it. Your image is soft and so romantic, so dream-like. I would love to try out your technique! And you always do such good framing.
By the way, what's "Neat image"? Thanks for any help you can offer.

For this cutie petutie I did the following:

1) Eye Candy: Swirl: Whirlpool .31/Smear .03/Twist 9%/ Streak Detail 32

2) Eye Candy: Weave: Ribbon .10/Gap .10/Shadow 27/Thread 50/ Thread Length 24/ Smear Ribbons.

3) Impressionist: Style:djrOIL24/ Background: Image/Brush 25/Coverage 58/Pressure 85.

4) Saturation adjustment layer

5) Curves adjustment layer

The second one is done with a Trimoon Art History Brush. Added some Noise to smooth it out.

Cheers
Dave

Thank you Jaykita very much! I used Neat Image Noise Reduction

http://www.neatimage.com/

because as I recall the original copy was very noisy. Glad you liked the result. I use PaintShopPro for frames generally but did this one myself.
I add a large border, fill with a colour, add some texture, add a drop shadow top and bottom. i.e. to the inside edges.

Had a delay answering you as I'm upgrading motherboard etc.

Cheers and keep up your great work as always too....!

This is actual brushwork in ps7 with the use of the "select-color range" feature and the eyedropper to pick up colors from the original image, and a default paintbrush (which i modified a bit.).
