"Detail" is my own setting within PSP8's Artistic Brushstrokes i.e.

Softness=5/Length=10/Density=75/Bristles=210/
Width=1/Opacity=2/Angle=135/Colour=Dark Gray

I regret the lack of steps given on this - I was trying this tutorial first in Painter and not getting satisfactory results:-

http://www.bildsajten.com/painter/tut2/tut2.htm

I then decided to use my result and clone in the colours from original photo following the lines of the building etc. I selected colours for the sky though and the grass as there was little in the original. The brushes used ????????
I did use soft clone brush to bring back some detail to the window surrounds and door etc. (A tip from another tutorial). I haven't advanced far enough with Painter to know how to "finish" a project correctly so I opt for PSP8.1 for that at present.

If this turned out okay to your eyes I assure you it was accidental

re: Scripts
If you have the script download site handy, post the URL(s) if you would so other PSP users can get to them.

re: Larger versions of the images
I just dusted off PSP 7.0. The File > Export > Jpg dialog has controls where you can adjust the output file size. Have you tried that dialog?

10" x 12" at 72 ppi should optimize nicely in less than 100KB. Give this a go when you get time. I would sure like to see larger versions.

Let's see...
I think I threw everything but the kitchen sink at this one. Final is mostly spattered strokes, paint engine, and texturizer.

OK... we'll go with "Brickless House" for your version.

I put some water on my house and grew it. Then selected brick with Color Range and applied PS Texture: Brick (now isn't that novel!)
Ran Impressionist: Colored Screen On Black/Background Color/25/100/200.
Bit of Burning on the branches.

Cheers

Here's my house ! I'm working my way through all these threads one by one

Used the smart blur filter, watercolour art history brush and some duplicating and blending of layers then painted in some colour to the sky by hand.

VERY watercolor-like. The paper texture really sells it.

re: I'm working my way through all these threads one by one.
You've got a lot catching up to do!

Seriously... no rush. Go in any sequence you like. There are many to inspire and challenge you. Have fun on each.

Thanks Danny! The texture I used is from a piece of my own handmade paper that I scanned in.

If anyone would like a copy of it just PM me and I'll send a high res copy through to you.
