Like LQQKER, this also isn't hard-core photo-art, but maybe someone finds it interesting.
(LQQKER, borrowed the noise - but masked only to the skin, OK?)
What an exciting thread, wonderful results throughout!
Dupe coloured image
Image 2 – PR Studio - BW + Levels to lighten
Buzz/One – Light – 135
Dupe Layer twice/Mode/Multiply twice
(Clone to get rid of blotches on skin)
Dupe Image and….
Paste as L2 onto original image
Mode – Lum (L) 50% - Merge
L2 – Photo Wizz/RGB to HSL
Mode Normal (pic 1)
Mode Dodge 52% (pic 2)
Bravo Goldcoin - I agree, this is a great effect, love the colouring. Steve's (Trimoon) tuts are great, I often try them out in PSP8, not all turn out the same but its always worth giving them a go....I still have an excellent HK tut of Steve's that I often refer to... THANKS STEVE!!!
Here's my high key look:
1 Convert your image to b+w using your favorite method.
2 Using level or curves, lighten the image.
3 3 Fill a new layer with white. Place this layer under your final high key image. Activate the high key image layer, then click on "Add layer mask" at the bottom of the layers palette. Now take a soft black brush and brush away anything that doesn't belong ;
Although I could probably use the sleep, thanks for giving me a reason to play a little longer!
-Convert to b/w by splitting RGB
-Cut and paste eyes, lips from original and adjust color
-Manual color correction for hair

Great result Pam, I'm going to give this a try too....! Thanks.
Painperdu.....well done, that turned out terrific!
Used one of my beach, fishing village pics as background. Lens Blur, Impressionist Filter; Photo Filter: Blue.
For Bara, used Redfield's Lattice XP: Jalousie, set to minimum values.
This method uses two custom Impressionist settings. They can be downloaded here: http://www.retouchpro.com/forums/sho...6114#post76114
Layer L1 (upwards) Original image, image adjustment levels to lighten without increasing contrast (only move middle slider toward left)
L2- Dup L1- apply impr filter Watercolor A, Noise-Median 1 or 2.
L3- Dup L1- levels adj 0,1.90,255, ps7 artistic watercolor, 14,0,1.
L4- Select all, copymerged, paste -- ps7 artistic watercolor once more.
L5- Dup L4, virtual painter watercolor opacity 36. (this further enhances effect)
L6- Select all, copy merged, paste.
L7- Dup, impr filter watercolor B opac 41.
L8- Select all, copy merged, paste, image adj selective color-white reduce black a bit.
L9- Dup again ps7 artistic watercolor, layermask (add vectormask)to get rid of any black in image if necessary.
I used the same method for the "Jose" challenge, too.
