Hi, using the highpassfilter or usm with settings for increase the contrast.
Beware to get artifacts such halos and noise...use mask to blend out something that doesn´t need to much contrast.
Sorry for my english
Cheers
Martin

How would I go about doing that with Paint Shop? I have Photoshop also but would like to know how to do it in Paint Shop Pro. Thanks!

Can we get an example picture to work with? Preferably something a little bigger then a thumbnail.

Re: How do you get the metallic/glow effect?

Could you explain what aspect of the photo you'd like to replicate? Is it the sky, the car, the skin?

Th basic setup apperars to be the scene lit by slightly diffuse light from the sky on picture right (the girls left) and a large fill from somewhere near the camera, probably slightly to the left. Then everything is darkened relative to the model.

Re: How do you get the metallic/glow effect?

Looks like painting with light in conjunction with "diffuse glow" filter or a combination of blur+sharpening.

Someone else can probably better help on the blur/sharpening/glow, but these should help with the painting with light:

Re: How do you get the metallic/glow effect?

Here is a picture I had. Did it by filling a new layer with a blue and setting it to saturation, and then darkened the picture. All of this with only the dress masked. Then did some more with D&B and the rest is normal corrections.

I was unsure if you were referring to the effect on her dress or the car. I have seen a lot of the cars effect in HDR. You can run a signal image HDR and edit it to look like that with the girl masked out.

Hope it helps,
