Make a Mini Village or Town in Photoshop
this instructible will show you how to give a photo of a town a handmade look.
First Things First!
of a town, city, football stadium, or anything you want to miniturise
i used this picture i found on the net!
i love the net.
enter quick mask mode by clicking on this symbol!
(the black rectangle with the white circle)
set up your gradient like this
Apply a Gradient
aply a gradient over the part of the photo you want the focus point to be.
for me this was the central tower
exit quickmask mode and you should be left with a selection something like this..
apply a lens blur filter and use the default settings
you should get something like the second picture
if it dosent you may want to redo your gradient.
fiddle with the hue and saturation to make it look a little more handpainted
And Your Done!
isnt it suprising how little it looks!
