Re: Postworkshop: is this for real?

Like the Liberty interpretation Plugs. Still, I got an email promotion from Filterforge and they are about to twist my arm $119 for the professional package). Should I even spend less on my family for Christmas so that I can get it? lol Time will tell.

I rendered the two and combined them in Photoshop; masked back in her jewelry and facial details; and then played with curves.

The fact that Postworkshop operates with its own layers and blending modes structure (among other things) makes it especially powerful and flexible on its own. As Nancy described, then you bring the results into PS and keep going and there's no end to what you can do. This is a great discovery!

Re: Postworkshop: is this for real?

Appreciate the oulline Nancy.

Just created my first style; nothing fancy. Noticed that everytime I did the etch preset, I would adjust the contrast of the input to get the desired output result. Made a preset that helps me do just that before outputing the sketch. Man this is cool. To be able to make custom filters (well styles; lol) so easy is a blessing for sure. According to the online document, it can be a plugin for PS, but maybe I'm reading that wrong. I'm actually quite content with it being a stand-a-lone. Still got a lot to learn for sure.

Yeah, I see the little bugger now. Sometimes they don't make them easy to spot.

EGAD!...just realized that I reduced the amount of ram in my pc. It's not new, but not so old as to only have 1 meg of ram. (Actually 1 gig.) And the recommended amount for the program is 2-4 gigs. Seems to be working OK with my 1 gig, a little slower perhaps.

Thanks for the tip on the layer thingy.

Re: Postworkshop: is this for real?

Maybe the forum on the PW site would be best for questions/suggestions, but does anyone here wish that there was a way to lock open the blends list while trying out different ones on an image?

Also does anyone know if there is a "revert" button on the program? So far, and I know it's early yet, I have had to click "edit" and wait for it to undo stuff and this is taking forever.

Here's another one done while playing with the program.

Re: Postworkshop: is this for real?

I downloaded the basic version some time back, played with a bit, and forgot about it. Now, seeing what you guys are doing, I'm convinced I have to have the Artist version but where is the coupon code everybody keeps referring to?
