Something different to artify

I'm fairly new to this photo based art.

A friend of mine has given me this photo of her old property and wants me to make it into a painting, but not sure how to do it as all the detail is so small.

Any suggestions for this type of photo?

She also prefers not to crop in too much as they want to keep the hills etc.

Re: Something different to artify

Do you have the original or just a scan?
how big is the original?
How big does she want the painting?
Color or Black N White Painting?
Do you have a high resolution copy you can post on a host site?

If you are using Photoshop, try playing with the artistic filter settings. For example:

Re: Something different to artify

sponge03, You can host your image on your own site or elsewhere and attach a link, Alternative Image Hosts if you do not have your own site are: ImageVenue.com (3Meg max, free) or pixentral.com (2Meg max, free) or photobucket.com (1 Meg max free,... 5 Meg PRO) or mediafire.com (100 Meg per file) ... then post a link here in the thread to the site that is hosting your larger image.

Alternatively, RokcetScientist recommends using one of the FREE Large File Transfer services – if you have a broadband connection! – to send your full res image to your own mail address, then open that mail message, copy the link that's in it, and paste/post that link here.

• Podmailing.com is FREE and allows transfer of unlimited numbers of files of unlimited size. RokcetScientist has transferred up to 6GB files without a hitch.
http://www.podmailing.com/

• Yousendit.com is FREE up to 1GB/month with max 100MB per transfer.
http://www.yousendit.com/

• Pando.com is FREE up to 1GB of files or folders per transfer.
http://www.pando.com/

There are many more hosts out there.. so it is really up to you which one you are comfortable with and which service will make the full size available for download
