the rest of these are a mix of your original image and the art rage image using different blend modes in paint shop pro to adjust the look and texture.

now, you've no doubt noticed that this is more than adding a texture. art rage is a painting program and not a filter program. so, you do have to paint to get your results and that may not be what you're looking for. nonetheless, here it is:
Thank you Craig
Great examples from you, i must give art rage a go.
Thanks

Yes. "Brushes" are shapes saved as .tif files. > 250 provided by default. Unlimited ability to create and add your own or ones crafted by others.

See attachment for small sample of the ones provided.

Re: How to add random brushstrokes/texture 2 paint

I was just wondering.
Is hand painting in PS or Painter an option?
This is more involved then using a filter but the end result would be much closer to the target ...random brush strokes.

I don't do hand painting but I KNOW that it can be done in Painter and i suspect i9t can be done in P.S. as well. It's just that P.S. won't automatically give you visible brush strokes, etc.

Re: How to add random brushstrokes/texture 2 paint

Apologies, I see that Painter did come up in the discussion.
Brush strokes in PS more difficult, but not impossible.
Attached image is more a proof of concept, but it is random strokes

One more example

Re: How to add random brushstrokes/texture 2 paint

I did this in Photoshop using large brushes and adding layer styles (bevel and emboss, drop shadows and strokes) to painted layers. I first simplified a copy of the background and saved as a Pattern and used the pattern stamp tool on several layers both with and without the PST's "Impressionist" feature ON and OFF.

Since Bevel & Emboss and Strokes or Drop Shadow effects are dependent on the paint stroke's edges you have to be careful not to cover edges with additional strokes. Add strokes to new layers so that you don't lose the layer effects.

Re: How to add random brushstrokes/texture 2 paint

Thanks Swampy, I really like this effect. Now you've given me some more work to study. Trying to learn things in PS that I have ignored is always helpful in the long run.nHappy Holidayz to you and everyone.
