Montage with PWL smart objects

Discussion in 'Retouching and Post Processing' started by beaucamera, Jul 2, 2007.

  1. Thanks to Ray Guselli's exquisite video and car tutorial, I decided to try another path. I never really understood PWL very well and Ray's explanation in his car tutorial does a really great job of explaining how to use it. (That part begins about 18 minutes in.)

    Since I've always admired Ray's PWL work, I thought I'd see if PWL effects could be applied to smart object.

    Here's my first experiment.

    That is a wonderful image Virginia

    I also learned a new trick with PWL from ray . Different than the standard way.
    Great technique
    I also love the way he usus the pen tool. Yeah might take a bit longer , but hey I can follow that:>))

    Thanks again Ray.....For everything.
  5. Replaced my original image

    Thanks Dennis, Ray and Gale.

    Yes, Gale, Ray makes using the pen tool look so easy.
    I rarely use it, however, for selections.
    The new smart selection tool in PS3 is really nifty.
    Ray using PS3? I'm wondering how you would compare results using that with the pen tool.

    BTW, I replaced my image with a revised one with a flood filter.
    I like this version better.:smile:
