orton technique

Thought would try orton technique...so followed fiona's link followed the step by step...no luck so went off in search for further info , got to another photography forum ,which were saying it was for p1 and the adobe ps cs3 didnt work with that particular steps.
So that was ok ...bit more searching , no luck followed few more links had few choice words to computer for not understanding what i wanted
So i figured i would compromise ,attempted to take the info i had and adjust it for ps c3 ...sounds simple enough
Ended up getting side tracked and playing with layers and blending and merging then flattening image ...have my own version in critique section.

Hoping someone can do a step by step on how to do the orton technique in ps that i can work in adobe ps cs3.
really would be appreciated

Re: orton technique

Heres something that might help you, I didn't narrate the steps , I tought they were pretty ovious,

YouTube Video
ERROR: If you can see this, then YouTube is down or you don't have Flash installed.


1.- Duplicate Image, Close original image

2.- lighten image: Image>Apply Image in the dialog box change the blending mode to
Screen and the opacity to 100%, this will create an overexposed image.

3.- Duplicate overexpossed image.

4.- Blur the copy overexposed: Filter>Blur>Gaussian Blur play with the radius usually it
will be between 20 and 50. when done set the blending mode to multiply.

5.- Flatten image

HAVE FUN WITH IT!!
