Etch a Sketch

I must confess that I got interested in Photoshop as way to make my paintings easier and better. I figured that if I could turn photos into sketches, half of my work would be done. I've tried almost every recipe for turning photos into sketches and this one is my favorite.


FILTER>ADJUSTMENT>INVERT to invert top layer.
Change blending mode on top layer to color dodge. The picture should be plain white.
FILTER>BLUR>GAUSSIAN BLUR. Adjust blur radius till you have the amount of sketchiness you desire.
LAYER>FLATTEN IMAGE.
LEVELS to darken the lines.
It isn't as easy to make a sketch out of non-geometric objects such as people. Photoshop finds edges all over the place. After using the same techniques, paint white to cover the "freckles".

Oh my goodness, I can think of all kinds of photos I would use this with! I have iPhoto, but this makes me think changing to Photoshop might be a good idea. Thank you for posting this.

Great idea for painting! FYI for those folks that can't afford the fabulous Photoshop, they can download GIMP for free and do the same thing. I have directions on my "Thread Sketching" post @ http://joysjotsshots.blogspot.com/2012/01/thread-sketching.html
