RECREATING POSTAL HISTORY

Tutorial - the Cancel / Strike (2)

Go to Filter/Sketch, Photocopy. The default settings worked fine for this picture but you may have to make adjustments for your picture.

We have gone to Filter/Stylize, Find Edges, then gone back in and erased what's left of the grey areas leaving us with a line drawing of our subject. The erasure tool is used to clean up the image, we want a black & white line drawing of the subject.

A 3 px. hard brush is used to draw in a few details that were lost. We then drew a 3px circle around the image.

The wreath is added and re-sized to taste.
