  • Review: HyperTyle (link)

    This plugin has great potential to supplement photo-art endeavors. It also includes frames and edges plus other functionality

    Here's a link to the review.

    Testing on print sizes

    Do you test on print sizes?

    I have been very disappointed in the results of Jasc's Virtual Painter on print sizes. It has a print size selector in the combo box which in theory would give you the same look at the selected size as you got in another smaller size, assuming you selected the appropriate size in the combo box but it just doesn't work.

    It seems to have been designed for impressing prospective web customers.

    I would suggest incorporating print size images into your tests if you do not already do that.

      The thumbnail images (and larger versions that can be viewed by clicking a thumbnail) were downsized from ~8"x10" images. In retrospect that should have been mentioned in the review and I appreciate you pointing that out.

      One of the freedoms of "photo-art" is the luxury of being able to get away with a little creative blurring via Median, Dust & Scratches or Gaussian Blur filters to disguise artifacts and jaggies.

      If I were generating "fine art" printed versions of the example images used in this review at large sizes, e.g., 13"x19", a little preprint blurring might improve the appearance. For some images selective blurring applied via a separate "blurred layer" and a layer mask would be the way to go. It would just depend on the characteristics of the image.

      I hope this addresses your question.

        Size of Painting
        by bcarll
        The one thing I have learned from this forum and other teaching site s that the larger the finished painting the more it looks like a real painting. I primarily do smudge type technique and have that to be true even more. My question is --- is there a way to work on a smaller canvas and achieve the...

        Hi all,

        I've done this photo of a leaf with some Photoshop work. I'm thinking of doing a A3 size print and frame it.

        What fo you guys and gals think? Am I a bit to optimistic here or is there potential?

        Impressionist-max print size using default brushes
        by macca2009
        I'm trying out the Impressionist plug in and would like to know approx how big our paintings from this plug-in can be printed at a good quality.

        I think some of the brushes are a small resolution from looking at them on screen, but if any of you have printed your paintings from this great...
