How to Turn an Image into a Painting in Adobe Photoshop
Hi there. This video we're going to turn this image into an oil painting. It's basically just a click of a button. Thank you Photoshop, let's learn how to do it. All right. So let's go to file, let's go to open and you're looking for your exercise files in oh six filters. There's one in there called oil painting. Oh one Hello again looking very I think this is my smart but business like in a funky corporate backing but wearing a T shirt. So you know, I'm approachable. Not my favorite shot. But anyway, we want to turn them into that painting. So the reason I show you this is it's quick and easy. Um, and I get asked for it quite a bit, but also it lets us know that in the previous video went to filter and I showed you that the filter gallery has like all the kind of previews you can go through. That's not the case. It's not all of them in there. They put the ones that they can work in there for some reason, some of them can't. And we're going to go through the rest of these videos here a...
nd show you some of the ones that aren't as part of the filter gallery because we saw in say pixelated, we saw all those kind of crystallized mosaic half tone, but this one here under stylized this one called oil paint, that's not part of it. Now what you might find it if you're using an earlier version of Photoshop or I think it's the 32 bit Windows versions, I'm not too sure. But some of them just don't have this option. So if yours is not there, there's nothing you can do about it. It's not so much the software, it's that the software doesn't work on your particular machine. If you install that software on a different or newer Computer, this thing will appear, it happens with this 3D panel as well. Okay, so filter, let's go to stylist. Let's go to oil paint basically. That's it. Now, it's kind of working through your previous probably turned off because it is quite stressful on the machine. If yours is, you can kinda just drag this around and work say on this face here. Okay, I like to turn the whole on so I can see the whole thing and then it's just a matter of kind of playing around and seeing kind of what you feel like more like a painting, I think that's terrible. If you need to reset it, you can either hit cancel or ready for a super nerdy trick. If super nerdy tricks aren't you ignore this bit but if you hold down the old key on your PC or option key on a Mac, can you see, you can see canceled changes from canceled to reset happens in pretty much all the boxes in Photoshop. If you mess things up to hold down the old key on a PC. Option key on a Mac and you can just reset go back to how it kind of opened up. One thing we forgot to do okay is I'm gonna cancel is we forgot to convert this into a smart object. Okay, so with it selected, go to filter and there's this one that says convert for smart filters, smart filters and smart objects at the same thing. Yes, I'm happy with that. Remember the only thing that changes is that the icons there? But now I can go to filter, go down to style eyes go to oil paint and there's me as a painting now doing this with a person is the face details are quite tough but I like it for like inanimate objects or you know, just down here. This is so cool. I love how it works with the detail down here. All right, that's going to be us. Let's click OK. Remember because we used a smart object or smart filters, it means that we can turn this on and off to get back into it. You can double click the word oil paint and go in and make adjustments. Alright, nice quick one. I will see you in the next video
