Re: 30 second Paint with Light Cheat

this works pretty much the same way in paintshop pro too. just make sure you use the high pass found in 'effects\edge effects\high pass' and not the 'high pass sharpen'.

i also found that if you run the high pass up to about 80 on this image, you can get a nice bronzed, sun tan effect on the model. (see attached)

Re: 30 second Paint with Light Cheat

Well done Nancy! Very useful and easy to understand.

I use this technique similar to this a lot, and it is great for giving some depth to flat images.

For those that have another 30 seconds to spare, and don't mind complicating things a wee bit, there are couple of extensions to the technique that could be considered:
1) Overlay blending is an additive process, as you say "the lights get lighter and the darks get darker". Although overlay blending won't actually result in clipping, it will result in less definition at the ends of the histogram. This, sometimes, may be exactly the effect required but, in general, it's a good idea to lower the contrast of the base image (-10 or -20%) before applying the process - probably about the only time the Brightness / Contrast tool can be safely used.
Afterwards, you'll probably have to apply a levels adjustment to get things full-range again.
This little addition allows you to acheive even more contrast without sacrificing the colours.

2) The technique is great for making the subject stand out and so when you "mask out any areas that you're not happy with.." consider masking out all of the background as well.
Looking forward to seeing more of your tutorials.

Re: 30 second Paint with Light Cheat

Thanks.... simplicity can be so sweet. The only thing I felt I needed to do was to desaturate the High Pass layer to get rid of some of the greenish tones in the highlights. I'm new here and I really LOVE this site! Thanks again NancyJ!

Re: 30 second Paint with Light Cheat

Here's a go I had with this tutorial and it's the first I've done in PS totally. I normally cross between PI and PS6. Now, a question, on my monitor in the PI programme I see far too much darkening at the lower left back area and the upper left arm. In PS6, the colours are suitable.

Has anyone any idea why a difference should exist between the 2 programmes? Mind you, this is a very rough attempt with no trace of polished skill in sight...
