Art for Art's Sake

A couple of days ago we tried out some of the art scripts on our photos. Now we can take it just a step further by making it look as if it is on canvas. (Note: Did you know there is a special canvas available made just for printers?)

I'm going to start with a still life I had taken last year.

I ran Howard Dickson's Ssoftcolourist script on it first.

Interesting but I still want a little something more. So I'm going to Effects>Texture Effects>Texture.

Clicking the arrow next to the texture picture, I scrolled down until I locate the texture I want to use. In this case I wanted the canvas.

I set the scale to 100% and the depth to 2.

Now I have a reasonable facsimile of a painting on canvas.

Now it's your turn. Just remember the size of your picture will determine the scale and depth of the texture. So while you are there, go ahead and play with it. Change some of the other sliders, have a good time.
