In this photoshop photo manipulation tutorial, i will show you how to convert your photos into oil painting effect in photoshop. I have seen so many smudge painting tutorials which was created using smudge tool.

But i personally don't like this technique for beginners, because it is very time consuming and also requires lot of practice and patience. So i decided to show you an alternative method which we can create
digital art painting effect with in just 10 minutes.

In this method we follow to 2 steps, in step one: we sharpen the details using smart sharpen and unsharp mask whereas in step two: we will smoothen the details using reduce noise and diffuse filter.

Ok let's start.

Duplicate the background layer. Adjust highlights and shadows to improve dynamic range of the layer

Duplicate the background copy layer. Apply sharpen 2 times

Apply high pass filter with radius of 2px, Change blending to soft light.

Select top 2 layers and merge it.

Now apply unsharp mask, amount of 125%, radius : 2px and threshold : 1 levels.

Then head to Filter - Stylize - Diffuse. Change the Diffuse mode to Anisotropic.

Go to Image - Image Rotation - 90° CW, then add Diffuse filter.

Rotate the image by 90° again, then apply another Diffuse filter.

Repeat this step for a third time then rotate the image for a final time to place it the right

Now apply reduce noise filter with strength: 10.

Now repeat the sharpen and smoothen details again to get natural and realistic look.

Go to Filter - Sharpen - Smart Sharpen to bring out some of the details.

Keep amount: 150px, radius: 1.5px and remove gaussian blur.

For final time reduce noise with strength: 5%.

This result looks pretty good as it is. Finally add some basic adjustments like contrast, clarity and vibrance.

Final step, we need to apply color grading. I will use Color Lookup adjustment to apply a color scheme. Now you can select any one from a list.

That's it and we're done. Photoshop Tutorial : Create Vector Painting Effect.
