Water Ski frames Lake Living

I caught a glimpse of Summer
in mid March

Soaking up some warm sun,
reading a magazine,
and watching Taylor play in the sand...
a day to remember.

Now for stylizing and framing
my sneak peek of Summer.

With a small bit of photoshop editing
you can change any photo into
what looks like a "Paint by Number".

Begin with opening your photo selection:

Go to Filter>Artistic>Cutout:

You may have to resize your photo.
Look in the bottom left corner of your screen
and adjust scale.  I went to 12% here.

Then you can make any adjustments
with the slide bars in the upper right corner of your screen.

That's it.
Now you have a painted style photo to frame.

An old wooden water ski
makes a great display piece for
Lake Living Pics.
After sanding and painting,
add some dock tie downs
and magnetic acrylic photo holders.
Now you can showcase
your beach photos.

Here are a couple other
"before and after"
of the photoshop cutout:


I hope this gives you lots of ideas for photo styling and display
and was a bit of summer sunshine
to your blog visit.

What an absolutely fun idea. I had no idea you could change a photo to paint by number. And I love the ski idea.

Thanks for the inspiration.
