Joe- I use Firefox and it works for me.
Although I haven't had a chance to sit down and watch much of it yet, it looks excellent.
Thanks again Vitaly!

1) i see you do the watercolor at 1024 pixels wide, do you upsize later for large prints? (if i did a larger photo than 1024 pixels would it not turn out the same?)

2) i couldn't quite see the ahb used in layer 4? (could only see 3 layers in text tutorial)

sorry about all the questions, i'm keen to learn.
Thank you Piker

Thanks Jordan. It was my mistake. Had to turn off my add blocker. I downloaded it and just finished watching it. Pretty cool.

Maybe later.... still thinking on it...
Look at it this way OlBaldy, when you use a mouse, do your arm and shoulder hurt? Do you find yourself sitting at odd angles to manage the mouse? Do you tense up after being at the computer for any length of time? Do you have arthritis, or...?

When I made the decision to use a table, it wasn't about cost (even though that hurt a bit). It was about carpal tunnel, stiff neck and arthritic shoulders. The tablet really, really helped because I could put it on my lap or angled from the edge of the desk and use it without hurting. I felt it paid for itself the first week.

Good luck.

Janet

I work with the image of 1024 pixels because 1. faster, 2. instrument is tuned to such a size. Create your own set of brushes for larger size, although it requires a lot of time.

When your masterpiece is ready, you can change the size. Photoshop files (*. psd) increased without loss of quality, but not *. jpg. Llarge-print format companies often request *. tiff, it is also good increases.

Text and video versions do not quite coincide in layers, but the main principle. The number of layers depends on the depth of detail (2, 3, 4 or more).

Re: Piker's watercolor emulation tutorial

Great tutorial, Vitaly. However, I tried to manage download paper textures for Paper layer
(Paper.rar) and watercolor textures for Pigment layer (watercolor textures.rar), and ending at "Page not found" error?! Could you please mirror these two files to DepositFiles or other? Thanks again for your sharing.
