Hi Ana, have a look at "the police, the thief and the detail" which may get you in the right direction: http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list...7&feature=plcp

Re: Awesome effect: how to get it

The "police,thief,detail" is the wrong video. For some reason, Calvin has not loaded his "freaky details" video on his own youtube page. Here is is on Scott Kelby's blog:

There is also a version on Russell Brown's site.

While Calvin's freaky details process will come close to the Milwaukee police effect, I suspect the stuff there is done with other techniques. Maybe the expensive Lucis Arts plugin. Maybe the "Details" plugin from Topaz. Maybe other "tonemapping" tools available in various HDR programs.

Re: Awesome effect: how to get it

In reviewing Calvin's youtube, it turns out he has added a new video for the freaky details process:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZV9u0...ure=plpp_video

And he updated the technique by using a layer group to achieve the double blending mode needed.

Some warnings - the technique uses the Surface Blur, so you need to have your iamge in 8 bit mode. Surface Blur works in 16 bit mode, but takes forever to run.

Also, the technique often generates some nasty artifacts is areas with fine detail, so be sure to carefully review the result at 100%. I've used the technique often, but lately I've found I get better results with the Topaz Detail plugin, using the "Large" details slider.
