I simply love the painterly effect and warm colors of this photograph. Please tell me a little about how you achieved this... #3867547

Ron Jones 1/25/2007 10:11:18 AM

Thanks, Laura.
I duplicated the image several times, running different filters and adjustment layers on each one. I moved one layer slightly. I then added a mask to each one and used some the artistic brushes in PS on the masks to partially erase each layer.

Laura Glabman 1/25/2007 11:25:09 AM

I know the possiblities are endless in PS but you certainly found the perfect combination... #3869354
