Line Drawing in a Photograph using Photoshop Clipping Masks

jackIn this video I answer a reader question that was asked of me through our Facebook Page.

”How”, they wondered, “can you make it look like a drawing’s being held up in front of a photograph?”

Its actually very straight forward, and would be easier if you took a couple of photos at the same time.

Me, I head over to Fotolia and get some images to help me out!

If you recognise the tip on making the line drawing part of this tutorial it may be that you saw it when it was my entry to The Next Photoshop Evangelist competition.

    Neat work (and project) Eric. I’ve used a similar “line drawing” technique in the past. But you can now make these schemes – which rely on a blur overlaying the original – a lot more tunable in Photoshop CC – just add the new ACR Filter to the bottommost Layer in the stack.

  2. Amazing! I’ve seen this done but have been trying to figure it out for a while, Thanks for sharing!
