Transforming a Photo into a Painting with Photoshop CS6 with John Derry


Learn to think like a painter and render images that look like they were created with oils or acrylics, using the latest digital artists tools. Author and artist John Derry introduces the process of interpreting a photograph into a painted work of art. He begins by explaining his system of visual vocabularies, which describe how to replace the visual characteristics of a photograph with that of expressive painting, and also shares the custom brush sets and actions he uses to achieve these results in Adobe Photoshop. The course also covers working with filters, layers, effects, and more to add further detail and texture.

Topics include:

  • Setting up a Wacom tablet

  • Removing lens distortions

  • Correcting distracting image elements

  • Making shadow and highlight adjustments

  • Simplifying details with filters and Smart Blur

  • Modifying color

  • Cloning layers

  • Using a traditional paint color swatch set

  • Using custom actions

  • Working with canvas texture

  • Creating physical surface texture effects

  • Painting with custom brushes

I was delighted to find InDesign at such a great price and equally as pleased at how quickly I could download it and use it. It's been with me 3 days and I've already designed a brochure! Your site has a very prominent bookmark on my browser.

Support was very helpful in installing the program I bought. The person stayed with me until the program was succesfully installed.
Robert, US
I appreciate the help the support team provided with the installation on my computer. The tech spent well over three hours trying to get the product installed and the licensing handled. We went through numerous restarts and they always responded promptly after I sent a password for the remote access to my computer. I will highly recommend your company to others for software purchase. Thanks again.
