Deke, I am a great admirer of your work, and thoroughness of your tutorials, but when I set up just as directed, my new layer when painted shows nothing but smears of different colored paint, and only resembles an image.

Eddiefry says:

Question, at the end you mention pressing F12 to get the before/after views, This does not work on my CS5, I just get an error message, has the command been changed or is there another key stroke to do same thing?

Tazumi92 says:

oo hm I dont think it gives you a better 3D feeling or something like that you can reach out for but those Tools still seem cool and this Video helps understanding how it works. Thank you

slydfox says:

thank you for this, I am a photographer myself and I like to make my photos look like digital art once i’ve photoshopped them, this helps in explaining that so well and i’ll be trying out these techniques on my next project 🙂

MRlaith says:

what?artist are not saying yay now we can steal the colors and make a fake painting out of a picture.. the new tools are a whole new level of creativity and realism not something you should use to paint over an image, basicly its cheating >=(

good demonstration though ^.^

Abdo M says:

Where can i find the bristle brushes in the brushes menu ?

orenob says:

As always – it’s good to hear your perspective on Photoshop I was waiting to hear what you have to say on the new CS5 – Thank you for sharing some of the tutorials on you tube 🙂

The emboss effect is a little too much, but apart from that, nice 🙂
