Photoshop smudge and mixer brushes.

Site would not allow larger size ?

Re: Painting from photo
If you use Photoshop you can post fairly large pictures which are under 100k using the 'save for web' function in Photoshop as described in this thread:
(Size, Quality and/or Format your Attached Images..)
The save for web function in the latest Photoshop is hidden under File>Export>Save for web (legacy)

This thread explains (How to attach Files/Images to your Posts or Threads )

If you want to post a larger resolution that is over 100K then you can host your image elsewhere and attach a link in the thread, but also, always please attach an under 100K version (so the thread remains useful in the future, regardless of external links). (link to the highest resolution.. or the largest size you can upload)

If you become a "Patron" You can attach files up to 1MB to any post, You won't see any ads on the site, There's a private forum just for Patrons, You can display an automatic signature under your posts, Your posts will clearly identify you as a Patron, so everyone knows of your generous support.

Also be aware that in The Gallery..... RetouchPRO Gallery Image Upload
Allowable Image Types: jpg,jpeg,png,gif
Maximum File Size: No file size limit.

Just copy the addy of the enlarged picture and enter it in the thread.... (if there is a better way to add the gallery pic to the forum please let us know)
