My error. JCH (as originally packaged) does indeed have a stroke direction file. I'd forgotten I disabled it because they can be a pain...

See post #24 here...

These are very nice and with lots of the original detail. Can you share how you retained the detail--see my post above.

Nothing special. I used the Van Gogh preset. And I used the original image as the background and for the brush strokes setting.

The preset I am using says nothing about Ikroll either. It reads "LYLEJK....Thread...Thread2....Van Gogh....VanGogh2.

Open your image and save it as "Original.BMP." That is, save it in BMP format. Then open Impressionist and set the style to LYLEJK...Van Gogh 1 or 2. Click on background box and scroll down and double click on "file." When your saved image "original" comes up click on it. Then click on "more controls." Under "general" scroll down and click on "orientation" In "orient the strokes" box scroll down and double click on "by file." Click on the "original" image again. You should now be able to apply the preset and save your image.

I am not Steve, but I will try to help.

Instructions for Photoshop. They will work for most programs.

To create the stroke orientation file:
* File > Open [The file you want to use for a "stroke orientation file"]
* Layer > Flatten image
* Image > Adjustments > Desaturate
* File > Save as...
File name: Original [See note #1]
Format: .bmp [...or use .tif if your program supports this file format]
* File > Close

To apply any Impressionist setting using the stroke orientation file:
* File > Open [The original file. See note #2]
* Filter > Impressionist
* Click the Style button
* Choose any Category and any a style
* Click the More Controls button
* Click ">>" 4 times to display the Orientation panel
* From the Orient the Strokes menu choose "By file..."
* Browse to and click on Orient.bmp
* When Apply is clicked Impressionist will use Orient.bmp place the strokes.

Notes:
#1 - This file can have any name. Orient is used here because it is the file name used in the Lylejk custom style.
#2 - The target file does not have to be the same as the strokes orientation file. The only requirement: The files must have the exact same width and height.

I hope this helps you, Rogier.

~Danny~
