Photo-based Art Tutorials

If you're NEW (or old) to photo-based art, you will find many of these tutorials to be very informative.

Unless noted otherwise, they are Photoshop specific.

NEED FRAMES, BORDERS, EDGES?
At the BOTTOM of this list are links to sites where you will find tutorials and/or actions to generate frames, edges, borders, etc.

If you know of any sites not listed here... click the 'PM button' below and send me the URL.

In the mean time: "Keep having fun!"

PHOTOSHOP (scroll down for Painter, Paint Shop Pro, etc.)
=========

Are you a rookie?

Start with this one
if you've never done a photo-art tutorial. It's about the most basic one around. Many people get started using this technique.

Note: For a colored version try this when you're finished:
* Duplicate the original colored Background
* Drag it to the top of the layer stack
* Change the layer blend mode from Normal to Color

Watercolor-4 - Semi lame, but worth a look.
Watercolor-5 - (InformIT) A very detailed description of two techniques. The first technique involves actually "painting with a brush"; the second technique is "algorithmic" (i.e., filters, etc.) with a "how it works" description at the end. You'll need to register at the site to read this one, but it's free to register and I think it's worth it just to read this tutorial. (contributed by Jeanie)

Watercolor basics (wetcanvas):
This is not a Photoshop tutorial. The content addresses using "real" watercolor paint and brushes. The purpose is to give you an idea of what to shoot for when using digital tools.

Misc - Photo/painting combinations - tutorials written by Wacom. An interesting technique that makes most of the photo look like a painting, but leaves "photographic" faces in the painting. (contributed by Jeanie)
Misc - Retouching Photos with Background Textures - I'm not quite sure I fully follow this tutorial, but I like the end result (if I can figure out how to get there). (contributed by Jeanie)
Misc - Non-traditional artistry Simple techniques involving just one filter, but a good look at some possibilities. (contributed by Jeanie)
Misc - Digital Fine Art
Some very interesting techniques - esp. in the second (Bridge and Lilypads) tutorial. (contributed by Jeanie)
Misc - Artistic Filtering An interesting technique described by Jay Arraich in which major edges in an image are enhanced and various filters are applied. Though steps described are for Photoshop Elements, they translate directly to Photoshop. (contributed by Lisa Peters)
