Iglogan,
You did a beautiful job with taking a casual snapshot and turning it into a portrait to cherish.
May I ask you what water color plug in you used? I'd like to try your technique with some photos I have.
Welcome -I have learned an awful lot on this site and the folks are great.
Paulette

Lovely picture.

Vikki,

I liked your fix. Would you mind posting the steps you took?

Thanks for all the great comments. I have really learned a lot in the short time I have been in this forum.

Thanks Lynda and Jill.
I created a tutorial for this, (I like seeing the steps). It's at this address:

Sepia Option Tutorial

Lynda, if you'd rather I didn't use your photo, just say the word (although I think it's a really nice picture).

Vikki,

You are more than welcome to use the photo. Thanks for the link. I have some old photos that I am retouching of my family and I think this will work well with them.

Smiles,
Lynda

Vikki,

I just checked out your website. AWESOME. I especially liked the Photos to Art section. I would love to learn how to do this. Do you have any suggestions for books, tutorials, or online classes?

Smiles,
Lynda

Thanks Lynda.

I don't know of very many sources, although I know a lot of people do like to do this. There is a group of folks over at a Commuity Zero site that are dabbling in things like this. Their address is:
PUG

As for myself....I'm sort of self taught. I got some tips from Adobe's website, and then played around modifying the techniques. My goal is to replicate natural mediums, rather than create digital art work. For me, the trick is to use the filters in Photoshop as part of the process, rather than a one step measure. Mix em up, fade them, and blend them. That's how I do it.

I have yet to make a tutorial for one of these, maybe that's next. It's just that it's very involved and I'm not sure people are up to going through a long tutorial.

I think a grouping of photos done in a Sepia style would look wonderful. I'm thinking of doing it myself.

Thanks for the use of your photo.
Vikki

Vikki,
Thanks for the great tutorial.There's just some very special appeal to the sepia tones images. Plan on trying it very soon.
