One of my clients were talking to me earlier on today about getting a few arty shots done, and in one of those, she was talking about getting a charcol print.

Now i have seen those booths out there, that do take your pic, and print it out in charchol. I know you can do it with photoshop, but you never get the detail in it (well the way i do it, you never get the detail in it)

The link above is an example of the detail i'd require.

Is there any software out there, that i could buy that would aquire that look in a jpeg?

Corel Painter X will give you flexibility to have the charcoal look applied automatically, or permit the user to paint the effect.

I'm not sure but a texture overlay might create something close to that image.
Using layer masks to reveal what you want.

Look at the 4th post on this thread. Is something like that what you want?

https://photography-on-the.net …t=372922&highli​ght=invert

open picture-> dupe it
set that layer to "color dodge"
invert it (ctrl-i)
filter->other-> minimum (set at 2 to 6)
layer->new adjustment layer->levels (move sliders in/out till you get look you want)
set this layer as "multiply"
image->adjustment->hue/saturation click the "colorize"box.

I have modified this slightly, and instead of the final step(hue/saturation), I add adjustment layer-chanel mixer - mono, and adjust sliders to suit.

Yes what iof said, it seems its pencil sketch , some burning, and to me it looks like overlay with layer masks.
