About This Class

Photoshop for Lunch™ is a series of short video courses you can study in bite size pieces such as at lunchtime. In this course you'll learn to turn a photo into a painting in Photoshop. You will see how to use the Art History brush to create a painted effect and how to add some additional color and texture to your image. A download link for the image I am using is included in the Project description so you can follow along with me. Here is a small sample from the painted photo effect we'll create:

This is exactly what I wanted to learn about and had been looking for! I cannot tell you how happy I am to have seen your class. This is just amazing! Thank you so much!
This class has numerous steps and is very detailed. I love the finished project. I hope I can do something as nice as Helen does (with lots of practice of course).
Another fun class and I now know what the art history brush is for!
