Tip of The Day 5/22/2007

Home for the Hollidays



Today’s tip is thanks to Dave Cross.

            We are going to turn a photo into a line drawing with Photoshop. By the way, as I get more organized I will be adding more photos and hopefully videos.

            So, here we go. Step 1: of course is open your file. Now keep in mind hat this won’t work with all pictures but when it does it is sweet.  Step2: copy your background layer into a new layer with control or command J. Desaturate that layer by hitting command or controlshift
U. Duplicate that layer with command or control J and invert with command or control I. Change that layer’s blending mode to Color Dodge. Now you should see a white or nearly all white canvas. This is where the fun begins. Go to filter, blur, motion blur and drag back in as much detail as you like.

            There you have it, a pencil sketch from a photo.
