Thumbs down Beautiful Redhead...

I found this picture on a site called mkfreephoto...

Reflections are hard to do, so show me how you can keep the reflection and make this pretty redhead happier...

Any program can be used!

Red face Photoshop/Painter

A friend of mine emailed me as he is abit of an expert on turning photos into paintings, giving someone a few tips in an email is hardly going to fullfil my life is it, but this is what i was told.

Take the picture you want to turn into a painting and in photoshop add smart blur till it looks similiar to a painting, then take it to the artistic/dry brush, then take your picture into painter using Cloners/bristle oils cloner 15, then add texture.

This is what i got...

Very nice..

The rendition is very nice, however the problem with using smartblur is that it does what it says on the tin, it blurs the images, so trying create detail from a blurred image is a challenge in itself, of course it that the effect you want to acheive, then great.

If you are wanting to prepare the image and enhance it prior to painting, then try using smartblur on a underlying layer first and then with the original on top of that layer using the eraser tool on a low opacity run it over the part of the image you want correcting. This will help to keep the detail but clean up the image.

In Painter, you can thn run over the image with the cloner brush, making sure it is again set to a low opacity, make sure the feature is also set to something like 1.5 - 1.9 so you can still see some bristles.

Hope this helps.

Thanks Crex. I normally like to go hammer and tongs at any given photo. This is my idea of "subtle".
