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.
