Designed to produce a unique and surreal look with your photographs, the Painterly/Airbrushed Photoshop Effect from Photographers Photoshop is a dedicated Photoshop action for transforming your photos into dynamic imagery reminiscent of a painted or airbrushed work. This specially crafted action is semi-automatic and requires a single click to perform approximately 90% of the work. Once the action has run, you can use the History Brush and paint brush to add-in additional detail and sharpening effects within the dedicated layers setup for you by the action, as well as adjust other layers for an overall more personalized look.
This action is compatible with Adobe Photoshop CS5, CS6, and CC. When working in CS5, the action must be performed manually and the steps are explained in the included tutorial video. This action is also not compatible with Adobe's CC2014 release due to the omission of the Oil Paint filter, however within the subscription plan you can download the first version of CC and install the action for use.
