    Neil,

    Not certain what the artist did, but some ideas would be to convert to RGB so you have access to all filters and plug-ins. Try solarization from the enhance menu, and some of the filters, maybe under stylize might lead you in this direction.

    This is just off the top of my head. I don't really have time right now to experiment. Maybe someone else has some more specific ideas.

    Neil, I suspect the image you posted is purely the work of a talented artist and did not come from an actual B & W photograph...imo, however, you can certainly try and mimic this 'look' with some of the tools in Elements. Start with removing some saturation and contrast so that it has more of a 'dull' look. Keep in mind that the 'hue/saturation' and 'brightness contrast' adjustment layers can be manipulated in different ways by experimenting with the 'blend' modes on the palette. You can afterwards try the ' paint daubs ' filter in a subtle way. You found a good project to test Photoshop elements with. You may not get exactly the look you want but it's a good way to learn about this program...one i cannot get away from ;)

    Neil, you might possibly get a similar effect by first converting your B/W
    image to RGB, then desaturating it to give the B/W appearance. Finally,
    solarize the image and finally use the Gaussian Blur to soften it.slightly.
