This sort of processing doesn’t work on many images. You really need to find something that already has an exaggerated amount of texture. Old farm houses, shearing sheds, old cars are all great things to look out for, as they work well with this sort of editing.
In this video we use Lightroom 5, Topaz Adjust 5, Photoshop CS6, and Onone Perfect Photosuite 7.5 to create the final image. As you can see it doesn’t actually take that long once you get the hang of it.
