Niki was made with various blends ( one layer was g'blur, one was screen blend )and superimposed with a leaf texture image from ps7. Lastly cloned in Painter.

What i'd like to know is why my 98.8 kb image of niki turned up so SMALL?? What seems to be the problem? Any explanation for this?
Thanks in advance.

To Just Checking.

It's a little smooth (lacking depth and dimension) to be a woodcarving. Even pro woodcarvers have a bit of grain in the wood as well. It adds character and flavor to a project and gives a carving more of its own life. Now that said, I'm NOT a wood carver; but my husband's best friend is.

Other than that, you did create quite an exotic interpretation for an already exotic photo.

Enjoy,
Janet

What I do in Photoshop (generally speaking):
* Crop a portrait oriented image to 9-11" tall, about 8" wide and about 80 ppi
* File > Save for Web & adjust quality sider until the file size comes in under 100 KB (then save it)

That seems to work out most of the time.

Could be your image was smaller (dimension-wise), but higher in resolution, so you 98KB was used up in resolution (more tightly packed pixels).

Hope this makes sense...

yeah, you're right... it was more like i didn't know how to call it [JK]

maybe one copy of the pic, emboss, USM, overlay-blend would do a bit... the cut-like bits are there, but smoothed out...

i might give it a try later...

New to the group.

I just registered tonight . Insominiac out of meds .
This looked like fun and I love all the different ideas!
Here is my contribution. I currently use PSP 8. New to photo editing but becoming addicted.
I cut and pasted her onto a white background - used feathered selecting delete to fade her into the background - made a duplicate layer with screen mode to lighten her up - merged - softened - erased over the eyes.

Hey, I-B:

Welcome to the fun forum. Glad you registered and gave this one a try.

Apprecate the how-to steps you included. That helps others learn who are following in your footsteps.

No "rules" on how you create your art -- just have fun while you're doing it! Hope to see more in the future.

~Danny~
