Hi all,

Take a look at these

So a kind of stencil/wash out look where only the main features of a face can be seen, the rest being blown out.

I've tried fooling around with Levels and whatnot but it is not the same. So I am wondering if one of you has a better recipe.

Thanks

Effect>Stylize>Threshold will get you at least half-way there. Tweak the results with some pre-blur. If required, apply Effect>Channel>Invert to invert the BW result.

Red Giant Toon can be used to achieve this kind of look.

Apply Threshold Effect and then Find Edges Effect(you can find both under Stylize).

Select your layer.

In top LAYER menu, select AUTO-TRACE
Make sure PREVIEW is checked.
Make sure APPLY TO NEW LAYER is checked.
Adjust settings 'til strokes are where you want them.
Click OK.
When done, turn off original (lower) layer.
Put a new light colored solid under the top layer.
Select top layer again.
Add a EFFECT>GENERATE>SCRIBBLE to that layer
Set it to SCRIBBLE>ALL MASKS
Change it to a dark color.
Reduce parameters until you get the stroke look you want.

Thanks Fellas!

Kim : Do you know how to reset the values in the Auto-trace window?

I kinda blindly fooled around with them and now I can't get back to the default values for comparison.

Thanks

Weirdly - I don't think there is a default (other than lifetime first use values.) Anyone who's never used AUTO-TRACE want to tell us what they are?
