How to Turn a Photo into a Beautiful Painting in Photoshop

Painting in Photoshop

The best thing about Photoshop is that it allows you to do things in a few minutes that would normally take hours or days to complete. Case in point: instead of spending half a lifetime painting a picture, you can use Adobe Photoshop to make a photograph look like a hand-painted masterpiece in minutes.

 

Converting a photo into a painting takes more than just using Photoshop’s default tools. You need a variety of filters, brushes, and design techniques to actually make it look realistic. Fortunately, it’s still an easy process, especially since we’ve spelled it all out for you in this tutorial.

Let’s start by opening up a new document in Photoshop by clicking File>open your photo and set up background
