New forum: Photo-Based Art

Due to the obvious interest in turning photos into paintings, drawings, etc., I've given the topic its own forum. Feel free to start threads here for your own photo-art area of interest.

Photoshop Actions - Photo-art

In addition to moderating the Photo-based Art forum here at RetouchPRO, I formerly administered the best collections of (mostly) photo-art actions available on the net. They were crafted by number of talented folks who frequented the Retouching Forum at www.DPReview.com, plus a few members from RetouchPRO.

Scroll to the bottom of this post for download information. Versions 7 and 6 are available.

Collection replaced to correct an error in content. Count=Count+230 [11/17/02]

Not sure how to install them?

Click HERE to be routed to an actions tutorial written by RetouchPRO member David Kendal.

For an exceptionally comprehensive PS actions tutorial, may I suggest checking out the one posted at www.AtnCentral.com. It's truly The Mother of all Photoshop Action Tutorials.

Photoshop Action: Howie's Sketch

Check out this tread. In it you'll see a very impressive technique (and result) by Howie Mudge.

Inspired by Howie's work, Paul Stuckless wrote an action for this method. I took Paul's action and tweaked it a bit. It can be downloaded below.

Thanks to Howie for sharing his method and to Paul for his action development initiative.

Here's an example using the base image from Mini-challenge #9, "Last Chance."

The degree of graininess within the image and how much "non-colored border" is controlled by user applied brushstrokes once the action completes.

I am so excited with a new action I discovered tonight... I just had to share it with you all.

I can't wait to see what you think.

Here is an example... I simply loaded the action and this is the results with no tweaking. I have also fooled around with using the art history brush set to low opacity to add more details back in.

Photo Art Photoshop ACTION: David Rowley's Hayes Island Cafe method

This is an action inspired by David Rowley.

It is based on his Hayes Island Cafe tutorial:

http://www.davrodigital.co.uk/tutori...sland-cafe.htm

The action can be downloaded here:
http://www.retouchpro.com/forums/sho...9210#post39210

DISCLAIMER: Works pretty good on "non-people" images. Not at all good on human subjects. Keep image resolution in the 75-150 ppi ballpark for rendering; increase resolution as needed if you decide to print.

Have fun!

~DannyR~

"David's Watercolors" Action

I've been working on a new watercolor-ish photo art technique, (the one I used in mini challenge #64 - Jake and Joey) and with Danny's tips and help (big thanks Danny!!) I made an action out of it.
works quite well on most photos of animals/landscapes, but it would take tweaking to make it work on any people photos.
*note: this action will only work in PS 7, as it uses features like the Anisotropic diffuse etc.
You can view a post about this effect and how to tweak it here

- David

Attachment replaced. The apostrophe in the original filename caused problems. ~DannyR~
