How to Make a Photo Look Like a Painting


A regular photo can be turned into something that looks like a painting on most graphic programs. Adobe Photoshop, one of the most common programs, can transform the photo in a few simple steps.

  • Open the picture in the graphics program.

  • Right-click on the default background layer and select "duplicate."

  • Click on the "Filter" tab at the top of the page. Select "Blur" and then "Gaussian Blur."

  • Change the value of the pixels in the window that pops up. Put in 20 to start, but the number can be changed as necessary.

  • Click on the drop down box in the top left corner of the "layers" palette. Use the "normal" or "darken" tabs to change the look of the photo.

  • Readjust the Gaussian Blur pixel value and other functions as necessary.
