Pictures into Paintings

Discussion in 'General Technical Discussion' started by JustinD, Jul 10, 2005.

  1. I've seen this technique on several posts on the retouching forum on DPreview and am curious if anyone knows how to do it?

    I have absolutely no experience or knowledge about this so any pointers to online tutorials or information that can be provided within this thread would be greatly appreciated!

    Justin,

    Are you referring to taking an image and re-working it with filters on PS to make it look like a watercolor painting?

    Using PS Elements, I used a couple of "filters"....

    Oil Painting Action

    Hi Justin,

    I have a very simple one-click oil painting action. It will turn an actual image like this

    [​IMG]

    into a painting like this

    [​IMG].

    If you're interested in it, just let me know.

    P.S. By the way, the shot is the view of Fort San Geronimo from the grounds of the Caribe Hilton in San Juan, Puerto Rico.

    Wow! That's a cool effect. I'd be interested in that one myself.

    Looks like Monet, Glenn and Ken! What did you do?
     
  12. Some time ago, Jarrell Conley posted a link on DPR to a plug-in or standalone program called Virtual Painter.

    I liked it and use it often.

    Here's a link for more info...

    Oil Painting Action


    Chris,

    My contribution was one click on my mouse to start the action. Someone more skilled than me in PP created the action and distributed it freely a year or so ago. Send me an email if you'd like a copy.

    Mary (and anyone else that's interested in this action),

    Send me an email and I will reply back with the action attached.

  14. I kinda threw this together rather quickly just to show you another way of painting your images. This was done with Corel Painter. It may be a bit difficult to see in this small of an image so you will probably have to look closely. You can see it best in the water reflection and forground. This is a shot of Peggy's Cove in Canada.

    This is the original;
    original.

    This is the painted version;
