Trace to line art. Possible?


Recommended Posts

Ah! I didn't realize there were two images in that post.

 

Yes, to convert a photograph to a line drawing, you will get the best results by tracing.

 

But, if you're lazy, try the built-in Effects > Artistic > Ink Sketch (moving the coloring slider all the way to the left):

You'll have to clean it up, but that should get you most of the way there.

thank you not  much of a steady hand but can give a try. I guess nothing is that easy. Thanks again

Make sure that you view both tutorials!
When you use ShapeMaker you can save the project as an XML document by saving the Project in Dwarf Horde Project file DHP format. When you do this you can come back and rework your image as a vector file.
While using the ShapeMaker plugin you can access its User's Manual in PDF file format for additional info.

My hope is that at some point you can save the ShapeMaker Project file as SVG , EPS, and Ai formats so that they can be worked on further in other image editing apps.
