[Tutorial] Photoshop Image Vectoring
« on: December 04, 2010, 02:02:54 pm »
Well at the Graphic Design school I'm attending this was one of the first things we learned, Image Vectoring, well a "lazy" mans vector.

Enjoy.

Okay so in this tutorial I'll be showing you how to Vector a real life image into looking like a Animated / Sketched Image.

This can be done with any Photoshop CS but in this tutorial I'll be using CS5.

Tutorial Difficulty: 2/10 (Must have the knowledge of reading) (:

Step 1: Open up your image. Can be any image type, but for the best effect, use a real life image. Then Duplicate that image.
Example:


Step 2: Go to Image > Adjustments > Threshold (You can use any number, 128 normally turns out better for real life photos)
Example:


Step 3: Go to Filter > Stylize > Diffuse (Make sure it's on Anisotropic)
Example:


Step 4: Then change the Opacity on the layer to whatever suits your needs, I normally use around 50%.


Your done. Hopefully if you followed the tutorial right your final piece should look somewhere like this.
