Re: Help with Fractalius style

My thanks to Amica and Alex for your suggestions. I am still not getting what I see in the original. Don't really know why.

I may skip it for awhile and try later.

Thanks for the help.

Steve C.

Wish I could help...I had the same problem when there would be these great tutorials posted using Phoptoshop and all I had was Paint Shop Pro.

I finally bought Photoshop Elements 8, but it does not have all the bells and whistles that "Photoshop Expensive" has, and I still get stuck.

Steve, have you heard of Grants tools? They're really great for using layer masks, curbs, etc.

As for Mac users, ouch, you're really missing out on great filters (Impressionist, Fractalius...).

Palms, your flowers look great!!!

I'm a Mac user, almost to the fanatic level, who has been longing to use Fractalius and TumaSoft's Preset Viewer Argus (link below) for some time. So, I recently purchased and installed Parallels 8 and Windows 8 on my iMac. Additionally, to provide a way to use Fractalius and other Photoshop plugins, I installed Photoshop Elements 10 on the Windows side of the interface. I don't recall why I had the Elements 10 package because I'm a long-time Photoshop user, currently with Ps CS6 and and Ps CC. Whatever, the Elements DVD provides files for both Mac and PC, a nice bonus that met my requirements. The result ... I can now use Fractalius and other 'Windows only' Photoshop plugins as well as other Windows applications on my iMac. The two Operating Systems are both available on my desktop via a seamless interface. My desktop looks just like it did before installing Windows except for a couple icons. I'm very pleased with this setup and hope the description will be beneficial to someone.
