Ships in the Harbor

This image was posted in another venue. I'm shamelessly borrowing it. It's said to come from the PS installation CD.

Many possibilities...

Have fun,
~DannyR~

Thanks for steali...errr...borrowing such a great picture, Danny.

In this version I added the optional steps of 1) using levels again on the outline (after running cutout on it) to darken and accent the lines, and 2) used cutout again on a dupe layer of the original placed as the top layer and set to 50% opacity, since there was so much white showing.

How about an impressionist painting? Used flaming pear twist to get the swirly strokes, and can't remember what else went into it.

Chuck, my favorite is #3 because the brownish tones give it an antique look. Though I do like the way the outlines turned out in the others...very sharp and neat looking.

I finally bit the bullet and got PSP and installed Virtual PC on my mac so I can run Windows 98. I like PSP...lots of nice filters with a variety of settings and good preview options. Here are my first results, this one with pastel filter with reduced opacity.

PSP has a great brush strokes filter...going to come in handy for sure. This was done with it, forget the settings, and opacity was lowered a bit to let some of the original show through since it lost too much definition.

A pleasant surprise...PSP has a kaleidoscope filter...didn't know that. It has some extra settings that give you a greater variety than just the number of pieces. Here is the first and only one I did with it...just one, since I can easily get carried away with kaleidoscopic images so I stopped myself in time.

This one I used the filter (Find Edges) and re-painted in the color using layers and added some grain
