Re: Sunset Sidewalk

Thanks JimJam. Yes, Impressionist is powerful, but this java applet is the best that I've seen for an all simulated mosaic interface. Already posted the link on other threads, but if you haven't already done so, here's the link. Attached is a sample. I did bumpmap to give the tiles some depth.

Re: Sunset Sidewalk

Had a go at this one tonight.

Steps taken:

1. Opened image.
2. Duplicated layer and used the smudge tool on the top layer. At this point I applied Edge Effects/Enhance twice.
3. Next I went back to the background layer and applied emboss.
4. Went to top layer and changed blind mode to Hard Light then duplicated
5. Changed this Layer blind mode to Soft Light and duplicated.
6. Changed this layer blind mode to Lighten and adjusted all three top layer till I liked the look.
7. Merged visible and applied black pencial effect.
8. Flattened all layers and added border then saved for web.

All effects done using Paint Shop Pro v8 no other plugins.

Hope ya'll enjoy,
TwoLaidBack

Thanks Peter, Photoart is not one of my strengths, so any encouragement is greatly appreciated.

Re: Sunset Sidewalk

This photo gives me a chance to play with some streaming light. :-)

Filled a vertical rectangle with white to transparent blend from both left and right sides of the rectangle. Added some inner and outer glows. Set to Soft Light blend mode. Free Transform -Distort to rotate and place the light streams. Added a little film grain.

Copied a selection of the two foreground figures to a new layer and masked out around their edges (where they would be blocking the light stream.

HSL Adjustment layer to the original to pump up the color a tad.
