In this video we look at how we can create a Painted Effect in Photoshop Elements using the Filter Gallery, Blend Modes and a Brush. The chosen filter creates banding and we will see how we can easily remove this from the sky. We will then add texture in a slightly different way which makes it fully adjustable, and we finish our image with a rather neat frame.

Some of the topics covered include:-

– Layers

– Filter Gallery

– Brushes

– Adjustment Layers

– Masking

– Texture

– Pencil tool

Easy to follow in all versions of Photoshop.
