Beautiful bride paintings, everyone! This is a fun photo to play with. I tweaked her a little in PS, then went to Painter.

My canvas texture doesn't look very good at low res, so here's a link to a higher res version:

Appreciate you packaging/sharing your custom style.

(From your other thread) I know what you mean about "Man, I will never master Impressionist." But it is sure fun to keep learning more about it!

Need a favor: It needs to be repackaged...

Why? It's nearly impossible to find your preset(s) among all the ones that are already installed.

Recommendation on how to do it (see attached image):
* Specify a unique Category name = easier to find your presets
* Specify a leading character such as #. This causes custom categories to be listed at the top of the flyout menu = even easier for others to find.
* Use the same Category and File (.set) name = easy to keep track of what's where among your .set files.

If you'd make these changes and upload the new .zip (add it to this thread, if you would, please),

http://www.retouchpro.com/forums/photo-art-resources/8328-impressionist-plugin-custom-styles-member-posted.html

then I'll be able to try out try out your handiwork. I'll add links from this and the Bara thread to the fixed .zip, too, OK?

TIA...

~Danny~

Heck, that's the way I always end up doing this stuff. And why I bore most of you folks to death by posting more than one image. "Hey! This would look good done as...etc,etc." 8-)

Thanks Danny.

I repackaged it to be a little more user friendly. Note that I used an image for Orientation (has to be either .BMP or .TIF or .TARGA format according the my system; just save the original image in one of these formats). To get to this control, you need to click on the "More Controls" option.

By the way, there are ways to make for varying sized tiles; did not save this here, but play with those normally hidden options under "More Controls". Pretty cool.

This is a little different. Used the art history brush on a layer above the original, with a fairly large brush and then smaller on the diva. Used a layer mask to bring back some of the detail to the diva, but let the dress merge into the background.

Chalk sketch..

My attempt at this great photo. Used Painter to do chalk sketch(clone mode). Then added edges on a new layer in Painter. Back to Photoshop and used Skylight filter.
To compare work methods, I also tried the chalk filter in Impressionist plugin and was really surprised at it's quality, especially given the time difference of making every stroke in Painter as opposed to watching the status gaze in Impressionist. Oh well - live and learn.
