Here is how to make a photo look like its out of a video game in Photoshop CS3
STEP 1: Get a picture, and open it in photoshop.
Any picture will work probably, heres the one i sarted with:
STEP 2: Go to Filter>>Noise>>Reduce Noise. Use the settings I have, or experiment with your own
STEP 3: go to Filter>>Blur>>Smart Blur and use my settings, or experiment
STEP 4: (OPTIONAL) Go to Layer>>New Adjustment Layer. click OK on the "create layer" box. then, play around with the Shadow, Midtones and Highlight colors. I was going for a GTA IV look (sorry no screenshot :sad3:, so here is my finished picture
that picture sucked a lot more than the pic of times square that i did
GTA 4 EDIT
