  • Oil Painting Effect

    Here's an easy way to get an oil painted effect.

    Use the same texture for a displacement map as you do for the texture.

    The attached used a texture of my own called rust flakes - created from a picture of some rust flakes.

    The picture was taken in my garden last year.

    Nice image to work on, and an effective use of Displacement Map. Gives it a great look!

      This is what I did:
      1. Filter > Texture > Texturizer [Load texture...]
      then browsed to C:\Program Files\Adobe\Photoshop 7.0\Presets\Textures and selected Rust Flakes.psd.

      2. Filter > Distort > Displace. Settings: 10%, 10%, Stretch to Fit, Wrap Around. Clicked OK, then selected Rust Flakes.psd in the next dialog

      ...and it turned out very painterly.

      After step 2, i tried Edit > Fade Displace. Changing the blend mode to Hard Light added some contrast.

      This is pretty slick, Christine. WELL DONE!

        Must admit I did the displace first then the texture, wonder what difference it makes? have to experiment.

          Did some experimenting with texture and displace.

          It does make quite a big difference which is done first.

          Examples below - the first picture uses displace first then texture the second is texture first then displace.

            What a great technique! Thanks for sharing it, but would you mind sharing the texture?

              Sorry but to get the file down to a size that will upload it loses too much detail. There are several of the standard PS ones that should give similar effects though.

                How to add random brushstrokes/texture 2 painting
                by sponge03
                Just wondering if anyone knows of a good way to add realistic brushstrokes or texture to a painting after or during the painting process?

                I use photoshop and sometimes use the canvas texture filter, but would like to start experimenting with more random and/or realistic brushstroke texture....

                Tutorial: Texturizer Filter tricks
                by DannyRaphael
                I’ll bet you’ve probably used the Texturizer filter to add a “canvas” or “burlap” look to an image. I’ll bet you’ve even duplicated an “artsy-looking” layer, applied the Emboss filter to and changed the blend mode of the embossed layer to Overlay to give an image even more depth....
