I made a video tutorial recently..you can see it here: fav.me/d65mg70 I do my conversions using Photoshop...you can download it for free now, and the serial number is provided by Adobe. Give it a try..and if I can be of any help, feel free to ask me, I'd be happy to do what I can to help you out.
oh thank you! men seriously, I saw this effect in many photographs and i always liked how great they look with a perfect balance of colors and blur, so i always wondered how they did it, now i just need to find a new photoshop because i have the 'adobe photoshop elements 10' and I can see that the 'photoshop cc' it's more complete with so many tools, thank you very much again for the support, see you soon showing some results
I use Photoshop CS2, and that is now a FREE program from the Adobe website...they also provide the necessary serial number to activate it. You could also use Gimp, which is also free, but the process is a bit different with that one, I believe.
