Kraellin's Manip

I tried adding some brush strokes from Impressionist to your darkened image.

Not nesessarily better, just wanted to see if it would work.

Thanks for allowing me to play with it.

thanks Ro.

i'm not sure if psp has anything similar... still exploring all the tools, but i dont think so. i do have a lot of plugins and imported textures and patterns and so on, but i cant use the p-shop brushes. they have a different extension that psp doesnt recognize. perhaps deep paint will have what i want. still exploring that one also.

cazubi,

is Dream Suite a stand-along program or a plug-in for p-shop? i'll have to google it. thanks

steve,

didnt comment on your earlier stuff. you posted while i was mid-post and working on an image. nice and on your last post, you've got the feel/age sort of effect i wanted, but you lost a bit of the cracking. nice effect, but not quite what i wanted. the look i was going for is that deep paint look, where they apply the paint with a blade rather than a brush, lots of depth to it, but it's aged and cracked now. you've got the aging and 'yellowing' down, but not the depth and cracking... at least for what i was looking to do. still, a nice effect

i'll continue to work on it. oh, and is the style of painting i'm talking about here 'impasto' or is that something else?

oh, and Ro, i think you forgot to actually post your last image or did you put it on your new host site?

K.

Kraellin pic again

Thought I would keep playing.

See if this is closer.

Steve

BTW, I am using PSP also. Ver. 9.

Yep, that's it. Though it can be applied with a brush too (or a trowel)

When I said "Here" in post #18, I was referring to the atachment in post #16.

Impasto?

Here's one in impasto. Not sure it goes with the delicate impression of the photo.

Thanks Ro for your nice comments.

steve,

ok, that last one is getting much closer to what i was thinking of... lots of depth on the paint itself, but spread it around more, crack it a bit, and give it some 'edge' on the high parts of the thick paint. you're very close

also, since you said you're using psp 9, how do you like it? how does it compare to earlier versions, at least back to psp 7, which is what i use, and if you know, how does it compare to photoshop or photoshop cs? i'm particularly interested because i'm debating whether to go the expensive photoshop route or stay with psp but just upgrade, and i'd love any comparisons.

Craig

edit: oh, and Ro, thanks. always helpful and i love your work!

Steve, that's real good.

Been thinking though.. if you're going for an aged look maybe you should yellow the whites a bit.
Doesn't seem right somehow, bright white cracked paint?

Ro,

i like the effect on the dress, not so much on the foreground girl's face, however. a bit much maybe there?

p-shop has an impasto effect/brush/filter, yes, no?

Craig
