My human has always liked this portrait of Binga, and she actually thinks it looks fine as a photograph, but she thought it might be fun to make it arty.
She decided to try the watercolor effect she used on a photo of me a few weeks ago. After making three duplicate layers of the picture, the first step was to use the Cutout filter on the first dupe, found under the Artistic group of filters in Photoshop.
Then, after clicking OK, she went to the blend mode, like the instructions said, and changed it to “Luminosity”….
And, um, she was done! She did try the next several steps, but they weren’t anywhere near as good looking as the cutout and blend mode change. Sometimes the simplest two-step technique is the best!
