Cloned out the other horses in PS7. Saved and opened in PSP9. Ran One step photo fix and USM. Ran edge preserving smooth and brush strokes. Saved and opened in PS7. Cloned out some brush strokes that I didn't like and added a texture layer. Flattend and ran a floating photo action I have.

Wonderful variety so far. Mine turned out kind of pointillistic.

BG (hide the background horses)
A: copy BG. Select sky - Add noise - ColorPencil. Select Grass - Spatter. Select Horses - DryBrush.
B: Painter8 DullGrainChalk Clone of layer A on a transparent layer. (ColorBurn, 75% opacity)
C: Curves layer to lighten a bit
D: Burlap texture with a mask. Mask filled with RenderClouds & 2X differnence clouds.

My take on this one.

Removed background.

Xero Line Art and Photo Brush - aged photo.

Amy,

I used drawing mode at about -20 on the top slider.

Amy - it was well worth the effort
Christine - oh how I wish I could download from Xero , very nice indeed.

Meanwhile, I set myself a little challenge - to do an embroidery / tapestry / cross-stitch rendering. Took some work but I learned a lot!

The set (3) with lineart in is less than 1MB to download. I could zip just that one if you like to make it even less.

Ro, you what, made the horses into a cross stitch pattern? Oh dear, if my sister-in-law sees this, she'll have me making patterns for her from now until.......

Seriously, that is amazing. How'd you do that?

As I remember.....
I made two 4x4 patterns (attached), one for the background weave and one for the cross-stiches.
-Duplicate and resize to 25%, work on the small copy now...
-Separate horses from background (make mask), run Filter>Artistic>Cutout adjusted to give something like a stitching pattern. Problem is there's still too many colours.
-Save for web, type GIF decreasing the number of colours until it looks "right".
-Open GIF file and return Image>Mode to RGB, and resize 400% using Nearest Neighbour.
-Copy this back to the original with the mask
-Above this layer make an empty layer and fill with cross-stich pattern, blending overlay with a copy of the mask you made earlier;
-Below insert an empty layer and fill the the background weave.
-Tweak to taste.

(I know somebody's going to say that there's some plug-in for all this, but like I said it was a sort of a personal challenge)

Nice birthday present for you sister-in-law?
Have fun,
