Amanda, thank you, you're sweet. But...you're one of those that inspires me and keeps me trying to do better. You do wonderful things with the smudge tool. I'm jealous

And I feel exactly the same way about your work. You do amazing things and I'm continually trying to duplicate your product.

Guess we're just a mini mutual admiration society!!

Wanda...

You are amazing and a treasure! Your colorization (is that a word) is simply awesome (again).

Especially like your traditional WC version. We Photoshop folks are envious. (really). For the PSP folks among us, could you detail some steps if that's doable? That's very impressive.

Hi Danny,

You should be able to do it in Photoshop too. The basic need is the AmphiSoft Simplifier filter. http://photoshop.msk.ru/ Can't you run that with your version of Photoshop? I thought it was a photoshop filter to begin with.

I start by running the simplifier filter, to settings appropriate for the individual image. It can vary a lot depending on the contrast and details.

I added a raster layer over it, with the blend mode set to color (legacy) and painted the colors on. I skip this step on colored images.

I add another raster layer and flood fill it with white, then use the eraser brush to erase the center and leave smudgy edge.

Then I merge the layers, and add a watercolor paper texture.

That's it.

Sometimes - depending on the image, I erase the background first, then add a soft color behind it instead, then run the filter, and add the texture, but it's still basically the same thing. I've posted several images with this method, and will show you the steps if needed.

(PS - I always sort of feel like I'm cheating since it's so easy)

Tyeise

Re: Chantel

Blur Blur Blur Blur Dupe, glowing edges, invert, blend to overlay and fade.

A brief but quite a full list of actions really.

Nice pic thanks for posting.
