"Slip Sliding Away" Paint.NET - Corel Painter 11 - Corel PSP Pro X3

Slip Sliding Away

We took a little trip to Spicer's Cider Mill for cider and donuts the other day. I got some photographs of my Son in Law and my Grandson Playing together. This is one of my favorites, sliding down the slide.

I opened the photograph in Paint.NET and applied the Ink Sketch tool with the color turned all the way up. I adjusted the Curves to deepen the tone. I saved that large file and opened with PhotoPaint, adding a lens flare with KPT's Collection and added a beveled frame. Saving that I opened it with Corel Painter 11 and selected a felt tip brush and chose the quick clone. I then applied the Auto Van Gogh using that brush setting.

I selected the soft cloner to add back in some details to their faces and arms, hand, and legs. Saving the file with a iterative save I opened with PSP Pro X3 and used the Vibrancy tool on it for a boost to the colors. I added a crumpled paper texture to it as well. I saved the large file then resized in PSP to display size here with an increase to the dpi around 150 but a decrease to 1220 pixels length.

It was a great little trip and the cider and donuts and watching my Grandson play made it a worth while endeavor away from the computer. And I gained some new photographs to boot.
