Photoshop 7 notes...

Photoshop 7 notes are great. You can attach the note to the image and document every step you took to get to the finished image.

1. Virtual Painter's color pencil filter - save
2. Image-Adjust-Calculations 0% green (use the channel that looks best) channel - save as new document
3. select all new document and copy
4. paste onto color pencil and fade to 55% (this will vary with each image) - flatten and save

The color pencil really saturates the colors. This technique will mute the colors depending on how much you fade the black and white copy.

This is a very unique method, Lynda. I've not seen calculations used to create a new image (less the green channel) and then paste the results back into the original image.

Clarifications:
1. When you do the paste, do you do it (literally) in the Colored Pencil layer (and the Fade tones it down, re-revealing the CP image) or is another layer created on top of the CP layer?

2. Would you share your thoughts/criteria for deciding which channel(s) stay/go when using calculations?

Also, if you could post a "before" image for comparison purposes, that would give us an opportunity to further appreciate the results!

Thanks...

Danny

This is the VP color pencil.

I paste the black and white image on top of the color and use the slider in layers to change the opacity to allow the color to come through.

I sometimes use Calculations to change color to black & white. I choose the channel with the least noise. It is usually the green, but it depends on the image.

I hope this answers your questions. If not I will be happy to try again.
