Converting an Image into Oil Painting Using Actions in Photoshop🖌️🖌️

Introduction

 
The process of converting the normal image to an oil painting is one of the major works done by the multimedia designers. This process involves a lot of steps and takes up a lot of time. To convert a normal image to oil paint, you have to make many changes to the properties of the image, sharpness of the image and the colour correction of the image. It's not so easy to remember all the steps and adjustment values. However, you only need to use a single action in photoshop to perform these processes. In this article, we will discuss converting a normal image into an oil painting in Photoshop.
 

About Photoshop

 
Adobe Photoshop is a proprietary software by Adobe used to edit the images and make the front end for software. Adobe provides regular updates to this software to improve the productivity and security of their software. It is used by both the designers and the developers. Designers use it to create some magnificent designs, and the developers use it to make their software’s front end the most attractive one. Here, I am using Adobe Photoshop CC 2020, which is the latest version of Photoshop. But the steps and procedures are the same for all versions of Adobe Photoshop. You can download Photoshop by clicking here. Adobe  will detect your system configuration and the version supported for your system begins to download automatically.
 

Actions in Photoshop

 
Actions in Photoshop are a set of processes that are written previously for the purpose of doing a process automatically. You need to load the image you need to edit, then load the action file and click the run button. The action file starts to execute, and the image starts to edit. After that, you will get the rendered image as output, which is edited based on your action.
