I prefer the house on the hill result myself. A little like my favorite preset, Arctic.
Danny, Nice one. Looks like the real thing to me. Nice brush strokes.
Cheryl, I like yours as well. It is a little light on my monitor; but the over all effect is nice.
I started in PSP8. Brushstrokes with the Impressionist preset. Then I saved the file and opened in PS7, adjusted the hue and saturation a bit, lowered the brightness and boosted the contrast a bit, and applied the vanGogh pattern layer set to multiply with opacity at 30%.
Danny--I'm going to have to get you to have a talk with my hubby. He's a sweetie and spoils me rotten, but nothing like a queen level. I think I like the idea. I admit, I am stuck in impressionist mode--but it's such an awesome filter.
Cheryl H or Anyone Else:
I have really liked what I have seen done the Impressionist plugin. So I bought Frontpage 98 and followed directions that DannyR had written, but I have a slight problem now. I have some setting that others have used and was told to put them in the "User Folder" but I don't have one.
Now the plug-in works I have tried it and this is my file structure:
ADOBE>PHOTOSHOP 7.0>PLUG-INS>IMPRESSIONIST>IMPRESSIONIST ACCESSORIES
then BRUSHES, FACTORY SETTING and PAPER
1. Do I make a folder under Impression Accessories calling it "user setting" or do I have to save a setting for the plugin to make a folder so it will recognize?
I have a hunch if you created a setting of your own and saved it the program would create the user settings (note the s) folder. You can also go ahead and make it yourself.
When you get set, I've got a ton of custom stuff if you want it.
I was impressed with yours Danny....way back then
Has your confidence using Painter increased since? Are you using Painter as much as you'd like to or less..?
[Yes...I'd say the more I use it/discover more features, the better I like it. I'm looking forward to getting IX installed with its more Photoshop-like functionality, which will be an enticement to use it more often.-djr]
I had no idea where I was headed with this one but finished with a watercolour of sorts.

I Love looking at horses, especially when they are roaming free in lovely meadows! Am enjoying all the renditions. I can't say just what all it took to come up with this rendition -- I was experimenting with Fragment, Facet, along with the sharpen/aniso and layer mask painting, and inverting, and ...
