The impressionist plugin shipped with Microsoft Image Composer. It can be found on the Front Page 98 CD. I understand that FP2000 has it as well.

If you use Corel Photopaint, there's an effect called alchemy that does virtually the same thing. It's not in .8bf (plugin) fomat.

The company that created it sells a version 2 called paint alchemy http://www.xaostools.com/products/pamain.html .
I find it harder to use than the old version 1, but it does give some nice (also different) effects. I have been using version 1 with the photoart I've been posting.

thx svsg.

Catia I love your version too. It look s a bit like my second one here.
I used some of the presets from Cheryl on different layers and a texture layer.
Thanks Cheryl. The brushes and presets I used were all great!!! Thanks for sharing!

Butterfly at night (I guess).

After a lot of frustration, false starts, trial and (mostly) error I stumbled onto this unusual effect by duplicating the original image, putting it over a highly modified version of the original and changing the blend mode to Difference. After flattening the image the Lighting Effects filter was applied.

Mine is different...again

All i did here is add a layer reduced it to 50 on the opacity and then added a white layer reduce that to 30 merged, added text, added another layer to the background removed the merged one and reduced the new duplicated background to 50 and there you go...

Sorry but i ran out of ideas on paintings...I won't when i get the wacom i plan to own very soon.

Legacy~

felt the need to do something.

Well, here's my take.
-I duped the BG.
-I loaded the Blue channel as a selection and used that to create a new alpha channel.
-Used Levels to increase the contrast, and Gaussian Blurred it slightly.
-Loaded that alpha channel as a selection and ran PS:Render:Clouds with the foreground color a light grey.
-inverted the selection and did the same, but faded it to lower opacity.
-Deselected and did the same, but faded to an even lower opacity.
-Did my Red, green, blue channel with Imp:Chalk Sketch:Half-Finished with the foreground color as background.
-Faded each to Darken.
-Then Did the inverse of the Red, green and blue channels with the same filter, but Faded the red and green to Overlay, and blue to darken.
Deselected and ran Imp:Sumi-ery Strokes on Pitted Stone.
Faded to lower Opacity.


Oops, I forgot. Before I finished, I loaded the Red channel again and ran Imp: Ink: Detailed Color Stipple.
Faded to Pin Light and lower opacity.

Very, very impressive. The texturing effect is outstanding.

Glikster, that is very dreamy and romantic. Just great for a light hazy spring morning. Ilove it.
