If I recall correctly, you took one slide at, for instance f2.8 and then another at f16 and then sandwiched the two but I'm sure there are those who can be bothered to google it.

Google's proved to me useless.
The method you suggest sounds interesting, I'll give that a go.

It seems to me that the name 'Orton Process' arrives at differing effects. Take yer pick...

Brain racked.

One at f16+, sharp and over exposed 2 stops

one at f2.8/f4 and totally out of focus and over by 1 stop.

put the two slides together and voila.




I think.

I see, that makes sense because the Orton effect does tend to have that blurred yet clear effect

That would explain what I'm seeing...

Interesting.

If I remember correctly, make two copies of your background image. Change the blend mode of the top image to screen and right click on the layer pallete and select merge down. Make a copy of the now top of the two layers, select filter, blur, gaussian blur and move the slider up until the image is nearly unrecognisable with faint outlines visible (some trial and error is need here, dependant upon results desired and image content), select ok and change the blend mode of the top layer to multiply. This should provide an Orton Effect image. Don't flatten the image until you are happy with the effect. Use the backgound image, or make another copy of it, to adjust colour saturation, lighting etc after you have used the Orton process.

If you need images of the effect, I believe Flickr has its own section for it.

As with all "effects", please use sparingly and on the correct image - some family portrait shots look particularly nice done like this.

An orton effect can be achieved by duplicating the background layer and naming that Sharp. Make any adjustments to that Sharp layer, then duplicate again and name Sharp Copy, then go to blending mode and choose screen, then merge down. Make another duplicate image and name that Out Of Focus, go to filter, blur and gaussian blur, adjust so that detail is largely non visible but outline is, then go to blending mode and choose Multiply. You can also adjust the opacity of this layer to get what you want. When you are happy with the result then flatten the image.
This will probably explain it better http://potd.chrisempey.com/tips/archives/2006/10/the_orton_effec.php
