Photoshop Tutorial

Sketching in Photoshop

Many times we would like to draw an ink sketch of a view or an object. However, not all of us are talented enough to do that. Photoshop can do it for us, …and in a second.

Let' go to work:

  1. Open the photo in PS
  2. Duplicate the background layer and call it "Sketch".
  3. Image >Adjustament>Desaturate the "Sketch" layer
  4. Filter>Blur>Smart Blur (with a Quality "High" and  a Mode "Edge Only" setting)
  5. Image >Adjustament>Invert (chose the Radius and Threshold to suit your taste)
  6. Save your picture as a JPG.

 

Another Method would be to do the sketch with the Akvis' Sketch plug in.

You can go to the Sketching Gallery and see some samples of both methods applied to a color picture.

…and if you are not sure how to do it…just email me your color picture and I will do it for you, of course free of any charge.

Photoshop Tutorial

Watercolor from Photo

In this tutorial we are using a simple method to convert a color photo to a watercolor drawing using Photoshop.

After opening your photo in Photoshop do the following:

 

  1. Make a "Layer from Background".
  2. Make the colors of your picture more vivid by applying Image>Adjustment>Hue/Saturation with Saturation = 50.
  3. Apply Filter>Artistic>Dry Brush with a setting of Brush Size =2,
    Brush Detail =8, Texture =1.
  4. Apply Filter>Blur>Smart Blur Quality = High, Mode =Normal
  5. Save your picture as a JPG.

You can also use the "Palette Knife" filter in step 3 instead of the "Dry Brush".

Samples of pictures using the above method are shown in the Watercolor Gallery.
