    Hey, hope you don’t mind me playing along. Didn’t achieve the look you got. The filters didn’t do the same for my image. Still – spent a few minutes and fiddled about.

    is there a way to get the oil paint look if you don’t have this version of photoshop? is there a way to download it or maybe even use a different effect to get the same texture cause the version of photoshop i have does not have the oil painting effect

    Is there any chance you saved the steps in a document? Of course, I could write them down real quick while I’m viewing. Thanks!

        Obviously this needs to be adjusted depending on the image used.

        Steps that John followed:
        apply oil paint filter
        apply chalk & charcoal filter – blend mode soft light
        apply photocopy – blend mode hard light – opacity 55%
        apply curves – reduce midtones, shadows and blues – increase yellow
        apply b&w – blend mode multiply

    few times I’ve pitched ideas that use wood block style, then just hoped I’d find the right solution down the line. None have come to fruition yet, but they even do, it’s great to know I have this tutorial up my sleeve! Cheers John
