    Default Photo to look like a Painting

    I use Lightroom 8.2 and Elements 12.

    Is it possible to make a photograph look like a painting with one of these?

    I don't know if there is a specific function in that software...i.e. a preset.

    I'd try moving the Contrast slider all the way to the left. Highlights all the way to the left, Shadows to the right
    Increase saturation...... and then experiment with the black and white slider.

    Have a look in the filter section of elements.

    Hi - I use Topaz Studio as a plug-in to create the painting effect but I believe it’s posssible in Elements - see the link

    The best guide to creating photo artistic creations is Photoshop Artistry by Sebastian Michaels. Unfortunately he has closed down his follow on Awake course that many of us graduated to from Photoshop Artistry, but Im sure he will come up with something else later. Here is the link: https://prophotoshopartistry.com/max...GcXiVCTJEVCvdQ

    The sales pitch is a bit heavy but it really is brilliant!

    I've wanted to try this for a while and, while expecting PS would be able to something, have never really explored the how of it.

    A quick Google found lots of ideas and tutorials but the one I chose to try was < this >

    As a test I chose an already atmospheric HDR and the steps described very quickly enabled me to turn this image:
    5D3_6713_HDR-4.jpg

    Into this 'painting':
    5D3_6713_HDR-4 (paint conv in PS).jpg

    OK it's not going to fool many people but as a quick exploration of the possibilities with so many aspects that could still be altered to fine tune it I didn't think it's too bad.

    Cheers,
    John
