Join Tim Grey for an in-depth discussion in this video Painting in a shadow box, part of Photoshop: Creative Effects (2011).
In this lesson we're going to blend several different techniques to create …the effect of a photograph with a painterly style mounted in a shadow box. …Let's get started. The first thing I want to do is apply my …painterly effect, and I'm going to do that as a Smart Filter. …So I will choose Filter > Convert for Smart Filters from the menu and click …Okay, so that I can convert my background image layer to a smart object. …This will allow me to easily refine the effect of my filters later. …Next, I'm going to choose Filter > Filter gallery in order to bring up the filter gallery.…
Keep in mind that the filter gallery and many of the artistic filters are only …available for 8 bit per channel images, so if you're working with a 16 bit per …channel image, you'll need to create a copy of that image and convert it to 8 …bit per channel mode. I'll go ahead and explore some of the …various filters that are available to me. And in this case, I think I'll start with …an ocean ripple or maybe a glass effect just to get sort of a mottled appearance …
