to make photos look like paintings? I have been hunting and can't seem to find any, but I know there are some (free, hopefully!). Thanks.
Here is a link for a free program called PhotoFiltre. This has several filters for making pictures look like many different types of paintings. It also has excellent help and some good tutorials.
Good graphics program
Are you wanting something like FM Paint Engine? It's free. Scroll down to "Download Tile Tools, Paint Engine here" link.
You can get painted looks with effects that are already in PSP, like this tut shows, or this one.
Thanks so much, Elly and Jill! Those will work great!
