(music playing.) Hi, I'm John Derry. Welcome to Digital Painting: Architecture. In this title, I'll show you how you can utilize Photoshop to transform your photos into expressive hand-painted works of art. We'll examine the vocabularies of photography and painting, and learn how to expressively interpret one into the other. We'll take an in-depth look at my brushes and techniques now incorporated into CS6, and teach you how to apply them to execute your own unique artistic vision.
In the first half of this title, we will go through the process of preparing the photo for interpretation. Then, in the second half, we will utilize my tool preset brushes and expressively interpret our prepared photo into a painted result.

Here are the FAQs that matched your search "" :
- Q: I'm unable to install the custom Wacom settings included with the exercise files. Any advice on how to load them?
- A: After the course was recorded, we discovered that the Wacom preference files are not cross-platform and are specific to the machine that created them, which limits their use. However, in the exercise files you'll find a PDF labeled Intuos4 Mapping_PS_CS5.pdf; using this document, you can manually enter the settings in the Wacom control panel. Also, please note that the settings are not necessary to complete the course.
