Oil Painting Effect

Here's an easy way to get an oil painted effect.

Use the same texture for a displacement map as you do for the texture.

The attached used a texture of my own called rust flakes - created from a picture of some rust flakes.

The picture was taken in my garden last year.

This is what I did:
1. Filter > Texture > Texturizer [Load texture...]
then browsed to C:\Program Files\Adobe\Photoshop 7.0\Presets\Textures and selected Rust Flakes.psd.

2. Filter > Distort > Displace. Settings: 10%, 10%, Stretch to Fit, Wrap Around. Clicked OK, then selected Rust Flakes.psd in the next dialog

...and it turned out very painterly.

After step 2, i tried Edit > Fade Displace. Changing the blend mode to Hard Light added some contrast.

This is pretty slick, Christine. WELL DONE!

~Danny~

Must admit I did the displace first then the texture, wonder what difference it makes? have to experiment.

experiment

Did some experimenting with texture and displace.

It does make quite a big difference which is done first.

Examples below - the first picture uses displace first then texture the second is texture first then displace.

Christine,

What a great technique! Thanks for sharing it, but would you mind sharing the texture?

Thanks,
Jeff

Jeff,

Sorry but to get the file down to a size that will upload it loses too much detail. There are several of the standard PS ones that should give similar effects though.
