Crop>hue&sat adjustment. Copy layer.Go to filter>distort>glass. Adjust until you like the effect. I think I added paint dabs (filter>artistic>paint dabs) and you can always see if it looks more painterly with them. Copy layer, filter>stylize>emboss (adjust to liking) then use overlay mode. This will make the layer under it look like thick paint. I went to hue&sat again and saturated the red and yellow in flags. For the border you need a black & white graphic. I used an antique drawing from an old map an put it on a layer above the painted layer. You emboss it, (filter, stylize>emboss), and then use overlay mode to drop it over the layer under it.

Re: Creative Interpretations: Tall Ship Argentina
I really liked what GerryB did in the "village car ! ! !" thread the other day: Making the photo look old and faded.
This photo seemed like a good candidate to do something similar -- and it was a lot of fun abusing a photo rather than artifying or trying to restore it for a change.
The ship in the original seemed to be listing considerably, so the first thing I did was skew the image to make the masts vertical. Don't know why. It just bugged me. After that I just started scratching, fading, toning, rubber stamping, tire marking, coffee cup staining, etc., etc. Then I went to Google images and found a shot of some yellowed paper with burnt edges. I adapted this to fit.
By the time I was done, this poor print was ready for the trash can. I surely would hate to be on the other end of this -- getting this from a client, requesting a restoration -- if you get my drift. Anyway, lots of fun, and a definite stress reliever.
