Turn a regular picture into a fun, colorful sketch.
Open whichever picture you want to work on. Here is mine:
Right click the layer, and hit Duplicate Layer.
Click on your new layer, go to Image > Adjustments > Desaturate.
Now, right click your background copy layer, and duplicate this layer.
Change the mode to Color Dodge.
You will probably not see much on your picture, or it might actually just be blank.
On the same layer, go to Filter > Blur > Gaussian Blur.
These are the settings I used:
Next, click back on your background copy layer.
We are going to reduce the opacity to give it some color. I reduced mine to 35%.
Next we will add a border. Go to Layer > Flatten Image. Then, Layer > Duplicate Layer.
Then, click on Layer again. Then Layer Style > Stroke.
Here is what I used:
And the final picture:
See, easy right!
