These are the steps used to create this effect.

1. Make copy of background
2. Smart blur: edge only, 51 radius, 85 threshold. These settings will vary with each image.
3. Invert
4. History brush: large size, normal, 19% opacity, 38% flow
Go over image until you acheive the desired effect.

This is the view from our apartment. It is more a pen and ink than a watercolor, but the process is so easy.

Smiles,
Lynda

This rose is from the American Rose Garden in Shreveport, Louisiana. I first applied Dave Jaseck's dream filter then applied BuzzPro's watercolor filter.

Dave Jaseck's Dream Filter:

1. Duplicate Layer
2. Add a 15 pixel guassian blur to the duplicate layer
3. Use multiply in the blend mode

4. At this point you're going to have a very dark image and will have to do some big time curves adjustments to lighten to taste (a big loop) but you'll end up with an interesting effect on the image...

Hi Lynda,

I feel like your rose needs a poem now!

I found a filter that would work wonderful with your rose. It's part of AutoFX Dreamsuite Series 2. It a bonus filter called Dreamy Photo. I'll attach a sample of one of my flowers using this filter so you can see.

I found a fun new filter! It's freeware too!
AmphiSoft "Simplifier".

http://photoshop.msk.ru/as/simplifier.html

Here is an example.

I ran the filter and applied Alien Skin's Splat Resurface - Oddity Texture.

Digi,

Here are the instructions for the dream filter. Glad you like the rose.

Dave Jaseck's Dream Filter:

1. Duplicate Layer
2. Add a 15 pixel guassian blur to the duplicate layer
3. Use multiply in the blend mode

4. At this point you're going to have a very dark image and will have to do some big time curves adjustments to lighten to taste (a big loop) but you'll end up with an interesting effect on the image...

Lisa,

I have Dreamsuit One, but not Dreamsuite Two. I guess I need to go shopping.

Thanks for the link to the other filter. I will try it and post something soon. We are leaving in a few days, but I will try to post some images from our trip.

Lynda

After a few lessons on how to resize my image, I thought I would repost a larger version of the Amphisoft "Simplifier".

Anyhow, I'm still very disappointed in how little of the details you can see with this version. It is a wonderful filter with a ton of possiblities.

Thanks You.

Here are a couple of tries at the same image, using your technique, the only diffrence is that I used buzz pro find edges filter + hue and sat adjustment layer.

This is a very quick way of having a lot of fun, about 5mins for both. O'h how I love photoshop.

Hope you have a nice holiday or should I say vacation, and thanks for the tip.
