Convert photo to pencil drawing in photoshop

Friday, January 4th, 2008 | In How To |

Most of the time I use snag it software, image ready to edit my photos before upload to my weblog here. Never know that Photoshop has the feature to convert your photo to a pencil drawing photo in just a few simple steps. For example, the tutorial website at miraztutorials.

1. Open an image at Photoshop.
2. Press CTRL+J to make a duplicate layer, then press CTRL+U and lower the saturation to reduce the complexity of the image.
3. Press CTRL+J again then make the image a negative by press CTRL+I.
4. Then make the blending mode of the new layer to color dodge.
5. You would not be able to see anything, so to view the lines or strokes apply a Gaussian Blur at the top layer as according to your needs. Done.
