The art used in this Robert Mondavi winery website inspired me to create my own art using Photoshop. So I may be stretching this contest a little since it's more of a Photoshop challenge than a MM challenge but I thought I'd enter it anyway, hoping to inspire you other Photoshop users out there. I want to try it with a portrait next. And I know, this is another vineyard website, I do like wine, but truthfully they really have some beautiful websites go and check out some for inspiration.

That looks so cool! I have ps4, and I don't know the first thing about using it! I've read the instructions, bought books and nothing. I'm gonna have to give it another try, because it looks like there is some really cool stuff you can do w/ it!

This really is cool and I have some pictures from the coast of England that would work great with this treatment. Like Andrea, I guess I'm going to have to give PS another try.

Just open a photo with PS and play with the Filters pull down menu. Choose a filter, it will apply the filter right away and you can even adjust the settings of each filter. Hit okay if you like to keep the effect or click cancel if you want to try a different one. When you find a filter you want to keep then you can save the photo. (Be sure to use "SAVE AS" and rename the photo. That way you won't change the original photo.) There are a number of filters in PS to experiment with. You can get all kinds of different effects, stain glass, watercolor, neon glow. I think the filter I used for this photo was called Fresco. I added color with the color balance function. That is located under Images>Adjustments>color balance. Hopes this helps you all get started. I've been using Photoshop for awhile, and there is still so much I need to learn about it!

One of my fav things to do right now in Photoshop is to change the color of my embellishments. Let's say I want my red bow to be a blue bow. I would open the bow in photoshop, go to Image/adjustment/hue,saturation. By dragging the HUE slider it will change some of the colors. By clicking the colorize box, & then moving the hue slider you will get a different range of colors. You could also play around with the saturation/lightness. this will determine how intense your color will become. PLEASE REMEMBER TO SAVE AS - DON'T SAVE OVER YOUR ORIGINAL!!!! Thanks for the photoshop inspiration. I too use this program often & I still find new things I could do with it.
