    Thanks Bynx, I've been really liking the Orton effect lately. Glad to see you resisted the urge to edit it !

    Hokey, thats not nice. I only edit what I consider blatant erroneous pics that scream to be fixed or improved upon in my opinion. I said I like your pic. Perhaps I should give it another look.

    By the way whats the Orton effect?

    Don't sweat it, I was making a joking reference to this thread. That's why I put the in the post.

    Here's a good link for the Orton Effect. You lose some detail, but gain a dreamy artistic look. It does not work with all images.

    Thanks for the link hokey. That's a pretty cool effect.

    I think there is a little easier way to do the effect than the link shows. See if you don't think this result is a little easier.

    Always work on a duplicate image and not the original. Duplicate background layer (ctl+j), then Image/Apply image and change blending to screen. Duplicate the new layer (ctl+j), apply the gaussian blur and change the blending mode to multiply. You can also change the opacity of each layer to fine tune the effect even more. Then (ctl+e) to merge those two layers if you wish. This way you don't have to worry about moving the blurred image into the other image.

    Once again, thanks for the link.

    I didn't change the layer blend back to Multiply, though. I left it on Screen, because when I changed it to Multiply, the photo went really dark Maybe that's just because I use Paint Shop Pro, though ... anyway, I was happy with the results just leaving it on Screen

    Thanks, Gintaras, no it is not straight from the camera. The first one is pretty close, I just raised the exposure and cropped it. The second one uses the Orton method that D Thompson explained in his post.

    Nice picture Tori. The orton effect works great there.

    Here's another picture of Scotland, it's Bruce's Stone in the Galloway Forest. Here Robert the Bruce defeated an English army, as you can read on the stone.
    This one is a HDR too.

    This link deals with Paint Shop Pro. I didn't really read it though. In Photoshop, blending with multiply gives the image a wonderful little bump in saturation that adds to the magical effect. It doesn't turn out too dark because you are first lightening it by the Apply Image>Screen command. I remember actually doing this the old school way with slide film years ago and am delighted to have a simple, quick way to accomplish the effect now. It's almost too easy and almost feels like cheating.
