  • Creative interpretations: Flowers on a Window Sill

    Not a particularly good image for printing "as is," but lots of potential for creativity!

    Have fun.

    I like this picture! When I first looked at it, I noticed the blues and wanted to draw a little more attention to them. So, I selected the blue of the image (using magic wand), and increased saturation.

    Next, I duplicated layers and ran a watercolor variant of MS Impressionist. I then ran Richard Rosemann's diffuse filter on this layer.

    Finally, I set the top layer to "hard light" blend mode, merged and saved.

      Suble and creative as usual, Jeff. Nice combination of effects and blend modes.

          Danny, thanks for the kudos. I really like yours! Makes me want to go out and spend the bucks for PS.

            OK, one more -- this one is simple. I vertically flipped the picture and then ran Redfield's Ripple filter.

              I keep coming back to this picture...

              For #3, I used PaintEngine. It's a variation on "Artic", but I kept flipping and rotating the image. Used Erode in there too.

                Facinating technique, Jeff...

                So you (literally) applied PE effect(s), rotated image (say) 180 degrees, applied PE again (to get different stroke angles), repeat as needed?

                RE: Spending the big $ on Photoshop
                If you ever decide to take that plunge, here's how to do it and save a boatload of $$. Acquire an older version, e.g., PS4, through an eBay auction for $100 or less, then buy the upgrade of the most recent version = full-blown, most current PS for about $250 -- and fully legit.

                It works. I've done it!

                (too many filters, too little time!)

                  Danny,

                  Using PSP, I did the following steps:
                  * Apply PE
                  * "Flip" (Mirror vertically)
                  * Apply PE
                  * Rotate Right (CW)
                  * Apply PE
                  * Flip (Mirror vertically)
                  * Apply PE
                  * Rotate Right (CW) (Back to original orientation)

                  However, I am sure that I did more to this image, just don't remember what (besides erode) or when.

                  I think that the final looks a bit like hastily applied acryllic.

                  ~~~~~

                  As for Photoshop, I am taking a course at the community college this semester, so am thinking about the acedemic version of Photoshop CS.....

                  Cheers,
                  Jeff
