Been working on a little tool(box) for sharpening / blurring effects. Still got some things to iron out - if you look closely there is some banding. However , this came out nicely as a preview.

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?)

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 ;

Wow! What a lovely result using such an uncomplicated method. It's been a long, long time since I've been this inspired. I'll be up for hours tonight/this morning experimenting with this technique. I can envision so many applications.

Although I could probably use the sleep, thanks for giving me a reason to play a little longer!

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.

Cheers
Dave

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.
Merge all.

I used the same method for the "Jose" challenge, too.
