After being asked how I achieved the effect on my recent Michelle Trachtenburg wall, & another person suggesting I should make more tutorials, I thought I'd kill two birds with one stone and make a new tutorial.

The tutorial was done in Photoshop CS3, but I would think it would translate to earlier versions as well.

CLICK HERE FOR FILTER TUTORIAL

This is the effect we are aiming for (which can be seen in use on this wall):-



I hope people find it useful. :)

If you have Photoshop you can also download the Action, which I saved, which instantly does everything for you. Just download it, unzip it, then put the Action file into Program Files -> Adobe -> Adobe Photoshop -> Presets -> Actions.

Then to use the action, open your chosen image in Photoshop, go to Window -> Actions -> Load Actions -> Select impulsive_filter_effects -> watercolour and Paint daubs -> Hit Play.

Voila, everything is done for you. :)
