Turn your photos into beautiful Digital Paintings easily using our 'Ultimate Oil Painting Effect Actions.' Add creativity and an artistic touch to your photos. Compatible with the latest version of Photoshop.
Make sure to use photos that have good lighting, that are of good quality, that are not pixelated and that are at least between 1300-2500px.
The actions give the best results on photos with this approximate size 2500-1700px, but as I have stated, they work on bigger photos too. I would not recommend using the actions on photos that have a resolution lower than 1000px.
For best results, make sure the skin of the people/subjects in the photos is smooth, a bit blurry even, and clean.
For bigger photos, if you feel that you want a more accentuated effect, run the action once, edit the settings and once you are satisfied, merge all the layers, create a background from your layer by going to Layer > New > Background from layer.
In the file you will download, you will also find a PSD File with a few additional Photography Settings/Presets, just drag the folder with the move tool (V), into the tab of the photo that you have just run the actions on.
If the Oil Filter is grayed out in your Photoshop App, please watch this video and follow the instructions: https://youtu.be/tXNhthq-MZQ
IMPORTANT! Make sure your language is set to "ENGLISH", if your language is anything else but that, the actions will give you many errors and they are literally not going to work.
