What a lovely photo...considering it was blurred I thought to follow that route and make her into an angel.

Thanx for the welcome...sorry I should have given my steps. I use PaintShop Pro v9...I duplicated the layer, 25% gaussian blur of the new layer then set the blend mode to screen. Merged all layers and desaturated the background quite a bit.

Hi Ziaphra!

She was a darling little girl. Hope she grew up to be as beautiful! :-)

I'm still trying to get a handle on Painter. Auto Clone ->impressionist seems easy enough, but the rest is beyond me!!

Brought the Painter version back into PhotoShop and did a mild Gausian blur, Curves adjustment and a little texture. Added a mask and with the original photo underneath, painted some slight detail back to the eyes, hairline and a slight definition of the blouse to add interest to the bottom portion of the picture.

Kids grow up too fast!

I llike the original. The slightly out of focus blurryness almost gives the image an oil painting feel.

My version was done with the art history brush.
