That would be nice. I vaguely remember Stockholm, but after 30 odd years vague is definitely the word.

I'll dig out a few Leeds pictures for you in return.

Patricia, I have both Deep Paint, (uninstalled), and Painter Essentials 3, (now uninstalled, but did try it out before removing it.) I had absolutely no luck with Painter Essentials 3. Not an artist so have to rely on software for help. If Deep Paint is similar to Painter Essentials 3 then it won't work for me.

May still give it a try, but still undecided.

Am still working on the image we discussed earlier. Seem to get a little closer but still not the look I am after.

Is the Deep Paint Manual you have a hard copy or on a file?

So there you have the link....I have the manuel should you need it!

Palms...Two nice effects ...bet the sketch one is good... Patricia

Steve...

I have Painter Essentials 2 it came a a free software with my Wacom Tablet and I tried 3 as a trial...Painter is so much more...so many brushes but i think it is aimed at painters as opposed to manipulating photos...So much to learn in there but i have done few paintings i am really happy with..many i am not!!!
Its a long learning curve and patience is the key...
Deep Paint I love as i said this is the 2nd free program of it i have used...Its worth a try and if you get stuck there are a few of us using it...the manuel is in zip format as its quite a size but very informative...i can zip it to you if you want to have a read...
Havent palyed with the Lucis pic for a few days but will when i get all the other stuff done!

Patricia....

Hi Patricia,

Here's a 3 from Temple Newsham, and a couple from Roundhay, taken in Autumn last year. (The dog is Sasha).

Hi Patricia,
Surely I love the Photoshop AHB which has tremendous possibilities and I’m trying to learn its powers.
Your photo has nice colors and composition and really tempting you to play with it. Here is another couple of my attempts with AHB and with the Impressionist plug-in.

Hi Patricia,

Spent many a happy childhood hour in the open air pool at Roundhay, used to cycle there, then spend all day in the pool, the water was always freezing cold, even on a hot summers day.

Alas it is no more, and is now just a car park.

The old Mansion House at Roundhay is also scheduled to become a Council Office Block. Needless to say there is an active campaign group against this, lets hope they are successful.

Until fairly recently Temple Newsham was involved in breeding rare farm animal species, but this work was severely hit by the foot and mouth outbreaks of a few years back, and I don't think they've recovered from it yet. Certainly there are a lot fewer animals there now than there were (I'm not sure whether they may have even stopped the programme).

I'll be there today to see how the Chestnut trees are coming on. I always go chestnut collecting at Temple Newsham round about this time of year. It's a bit early, but all the fruit and nut trees seem to be producing early this year, so thought I'd better check.

Steve....Like what you have done to my photos...the statues one i particularly like the effect ...the detail is great and the colors pop...

Alex...Two more lovely ones from you...I really like the second one...nice brush strokes and detail...There are many more sea scape photos if you want to click on the link in the first post...it was a beautiful day when i took them so they needed no enhacement...

Gary...I hope you enjoyed your walk at Temple Newsam today...I was there in spirit! Did you take the lovely dog Sasha with you? Hope they leave the Mansion House alone...they take over too many of the old buildings and totally destroy them with modern looks...Last time i was in there was a party before a Phill Collins concert in the late 80 s...what a brilliant night there were thousands of people at the open air concert...but as you can imagine it took hours to get away!

Patricia....
