Hi all,

Not so much filters, but hand work,
-changed colors and color balance
-smudged skin, features and eyes
-painted necklace and then played with shape in liquify and free transform
-enhanced highlights in eyes (cloned from the brighter eye and brightened with white on an overlay layer)

Last thing the necklace still wasn't real so I ...
-Flattened then duplicateed background
-turned off top layer and cloned out necklase to remove it
-turned on top layer, added mask, painted out necklace where I wanted it to 'disappear' or darken
-added layer on top and painted shadow under necklace with a quickly sqribbled teeenie brush.

Roger

Dream Suite effects

Hey, Roger:

Nice to see you stop by. Photo-art has no rules, so your methods are definitely inbounds. You hand-painted the necklace? I did a double-take on that one! Nice touch.

Amy:

This is the first time I've liked the VP Oil Painting look a lot. The selection of "subtle" for most of the settings resulted in enough effect w/o it looking overly overdone like VP effects usually are.

- - - - - - -

About two years ago I got AutoFX DreamSuite and DreamSuite Two plugins, but just got around to installing them tonight. Hey, I've been busy. Anyway this is my first attempt with one of the basic effects.

Having seen and modified PS actions that render this Polaroid photo look, I can appreciate the ease of use and variety this plugin offers for this particular effect.

I feel like a kid in a candy store (again).

Okay. Enough playing. Time to post a couple more Creative Interpretation threads!

~Danny~

How can I resist this one. The photo looks like a painting waiting to happen. It just took me awhile to get to it.

Anyway, here are the steps.

1. Levels Mask action three times in a row, to increase the lighting in the photo. I just posted this action in the Software section as part of the shadow reduction toolkit.

2. Image Doctor Jpeg Repair at very high level to simplify the image.

3. FocalBlade Sharpener at very high level to boost contrast and edges

4. Neat Image to remove some of the noise that came from oversharpening.

5. Hue/Saturation/Lightness and Levels.

6. Hand touch up and crop.

Inca Color Pencil Sketch

Foraging for images again. This time I did a color pencil sketch using xero lineart filter and virtual painter color pencil. Merging the two images makes the VP look less VP.

Thank you, Danny

Thanks to DannyRaphael's impressionist style named "Impressionist Oil #24", found in the thread "Impressionist plugin: Custom styles (member posted)" under "Photoart tutorials and techniques".

Such a doll!

I've wanted to try something old world looking for a long time. This is the first time I've played around with it that I felt I could post the results. Created entirely in Photoshop with Impressionist settings, Ina was a good subject and sat very still whilst I painted her portrait for posterity.

Janet

P.S. Thanks Axle for pushing me into this, albeit somewhat vicariously through your tutorial in Painter. Good work BTW.

Janet

I really didn't get too artistic with this one but did create a levels adjustment layer and set the blend mode to screen. I then created a color balance adjustment layer to lose some of the blue in her face.

I dodged the eyes and saturated them a bit.
To finish it up...I thought she would look prettier with a smile.
