This introductory guide shows beginners how to use Adobe Photoshop and Corel Painter to make a photograph look less like a photograph and more like a drawing, painting, hand-colored photo, or other fine-art piece. Photographer Ferro presents clear step-by-step instructions and well-illustrated sample projects for each technique covered, including basic tips for both Painter and Photoshop, painting techniques, use of text, digital hand-coloring, cloning, artistic filters, color techniques, retouching, drawing, and collage. Also included is a very brief section on computer hardware and software, and another on marketing and selling artwork.
