  • Ships in the Harbor

    This image was posted in another venue. I'm shamelessly borrowing it. It's said to come from the PS installation CD.

    Many possibilities...

    Have fun,

    Thanks for steali...errr...borrowing such a great picture, Danny.

    In this version I added the optional steps of 1) using levels again on the outline (after running cutout on it) to darken and accent the lines, and 2) used cutout again on a dupe layer of the original placed as the top layer and set to 50% opacity, since there was so much white showing.

      How about an impressionist painting? Used flaming pear twist to get the swirly strokes, and can't remember what else went into it.

        Chuck, my favorite is #3 because the brownish tones give it an antique look. Though I do like the way the outlines turned out in the others...very sharp and neat looking.

        I finally bit the bullet and got PSP and installed Virtual PC on my mac so I can run Windows 98. I like PSP...lots of nice filters with a variety of settings and good preview options. Here are my first results, this one with pastel filter with reduced opacity.

          PSP has a great brush strokes filter...going to come in handy for sure. This was done with it, forget the settings, and opacity was lowered a bit to let some of the original show through since it lost too much definition.

            A pleasant surprise...PSP has a kaleidoscope filter...didn't know that. It has some extra settings that give you a greater variety than just the number of pieces. Here is the first and only one I did with it...just one, since I can easily get carried away with kaleidoscopic images so I stopped myself in time.

                This one I used the filter (Find Edges) and re-painted in the color using layers and added some grain

                        Here's my "effort". I really was just playing to see if I could recreate one of the other "art" pics and ended up with this. I really don't know how I got this, it just sort of looked right.

                            Goldcoin, Trimoon, Jerry, and Collin, all good sketch treatments and all different styles.

                            Trimoon, love the faded edges...adds just the right touch. I prefer the colored ones in this case though I usually like your b/w sketches...must depend on the picture.

                            Jerry, those sharp outlines are daring and worked out well...especially like the reflection in the water.

                            Goldcoin, the bold black edges and the purplish colors really work well together.

                            Collin, whatever combination of filters you used your end result is unusual and artistic, and I think you stopped at just the right place.

                            Chuck and Phil, nice subtle paint treatments, and the textures work well with the soft paint look. I guess I'm with you guys on this pic, since I saw it as a "paint" pic rather than a "sketch" pic, though the recent post have demonstrated that it's good both ways. So I made a sketch too.

                            It's supposed to look like an old faded color print. Did the blur/dodge outline using dustnscratches filter, then on the original used KPT2's gaussian weave filter (one of their blur filters), which gave the roofs "shingles" and the windows sharp outlines since it makes edges into bright crosses...hard to explain if you haven't used it. Also put a faint large crosshatch texture from andromed techtures over the final pic.

                              Here is my rendition and steps I used to get there.

                              1. Create duplicate layer
                              2. Image/Adjustments/Invert
                              3. Mode/Grayscale - don't flatten
                              4. Mode/RGB – don’t flatten
                              5. Image/Adjustments/Invert
                              6. Image/Adjustments/Levels – add highlights by sliding the white arrow to the left. .
                              7. Image/Adjustments/Brightness-Contrast – you want to take the contrast slider to the minus usually between -10 and -30.
                              8. Create duplicate layer
                              9. Image/Adjustments/Invert
                              10. Blending Mode colors dodge – should be all white, if not go back to step 8 and take the contrast down a little more.
                              11. Filter/Blur/Motion Blur – adjust so you can see as much detail as you desire.
                              12. Flatten image
                              13. Activate the History Brush and use the Watercolor 3 brush (PS7) and paint being careful not to go all the way to the edges.
                              14. Double click background layer and rename layer 0. (for transparent background.
                              15. Use Magic Wand to select the edge.
                              16. Select/Modify/Expand 5 to 10 pixels.
                              17. Edit/Copy and paste. This creates a new layer.
                              18. Filter/Brush Stokes/Angled Strokes – Direction Balance – 50, Stroke Length – 32, Sharpness – 3.
                              19. Merge Visible.
                              20. Create new layer and fill with 50% gray.
                              21. Filter/Noise/Add Noise – Amount – 181%, Gaussian, Monochromatic
                              22. I used buZZPro – Simplifier set at 288%
                              23. Set Layer Mode to Overlay and Opacity at 25%.
                              24. Merge Visible
                              26. Filter/Texturizer/Texture – choose what ever texture you like.

                              I didn't redo all the steps to see if I have it all down. Yawn... Let me know if anyone has a problem.

                              Happy New Year!!!
