Art History Brush

by: Sarah Tupper
  • Open Adobe Photoshop.
  • Find a picture of your choosing that you would like to use, it can be from the internet or from your home folder.
  • copy your picture off of where you got it.
  • Then paste it on the "New Page" in Adobe Photoshop.
  • On the top tool bar, select Filter, then select an effect (artistic, blur, etc.) that will make the entire picture unrecognizable.
  • Once you have selected the effect of your choosing, select the "Art History Brush" tool on the left tool bar.
  • Cick the little white box in front of the word paste in the history box to the right of your Adobe Photoshop project.
  • Once that white box has been selected, go back to the main focused point in the photo, and trace over it with the "Art History Brush"
  • The History Brush should be re-painting the picture and making it look like what it was before.
  • When you think you are done, save it, and copy it onto your wiki.

You can also make the filter effect less noticeable, but it does not look as good.
