The brush i use most (at the moment) is here
http://www.furiae.com/index.php?view=gallery
under tutorials, textured brushes the download link is right at the bottom

And basically all i do is make a copy of the original image (image1) and paint away again using one/two "clicks"( make the brush a bit smaller if you like) controlling the colour can be a bit hard but move your brush around a bit(image2), and that is it you can then do loads of things like add contrast, sharpen, or colorize,(image4) When you get a background you really like save it and alter for other images

What i do then is have the art work under this layer and use a mask to bring it through (image3) or if you have cut your image out on to another layer put it on top of the background

Hope this helps some for someone

I am trying to ride on your coat tails Palms.

Here is my version of this image. I just used the Color Range to isolate the green and then used Gaussian Blur to my taste. Then inverted the selection and sharpened it. then while just the flower was still selected I went to the Edit menu and used the Stroke command with a line size of one pixel.

Here

Hi Palms

I've downloaded those brushes you recommend, but they don't seem to work on my mac computer? Does anyone know a way around this?
Thanks
