Painting looking images

Hi,
Does anyone know how to achieve soft effect of a painting? I see it often in advertising/editorial pictures. Take a look at the attached images,
Thanks
Paul

Looks like they have suspended their services...is there any similar software? Perhaps from more serious company?

I referred to Lucis. Draganize action looks simply great!

Re: Painting looking images

Your welcome.
When you work with the action notice that there are actually two. One for large and one for small images.

Re: Painting looking images

Ok so, without using something like lucisart or draganizer this can be done manually in photshop, though it will take a bit more time and creativity.

Step 1: duplicate image layer, change layer style to screen and apply Noise>median with a low radius. This creates a soft glowing highlight. Mask the layer and paint only the highlight areas using very little brush hardness for soft edges.

Step 2. Duplicate original layer again and change layer style to multiply. You may need to mess with the saturation of this layer as sometimes multiply over saturates a little. Mask this layer as well and apply to the natural shadows as above. This works especially well to play up wrinkles.

Step 3. If you want a little further drama, merge the layers in a new layer and add the high pass filter (I would advise starting with a lower radius and working your way up) change the layer to soft light mode. Make sure you don't go overboard with the high pass radius or youl get a funky halo effect ... unless you like that.

Hope this helps.
