iPad Photoshop Touch Tutorial #3 – Creating A Pencil Sketch From An Image

by Colin Jones

In this latest Photoshop Touch for iPad tutorial, we will take an image and turn it into a cool pencil sketch – This effect will look particularly good on photos of landscapes, flowers and portraits.

Let’s get started:

Step 1) As always choose to Begin A Project from the main menu and select an image from one of the sources.
Step 2) Once you have selected your image, tap on the + icon and choose to add a Duplicate Layer
Step 3) Tap on the fx icon at the top right-hand side of the interface – Now select Artistic, then Pencil.
Step 4) Set the threshold to anywhere between 50% and 70% – For this tutorial we have set it at 50%.
Step 5) Now tap the Layer Properties icon (it looks like 2 pieces of paper) which is next to the + icon. From the Blend Mode drop-down menu, choose Overlay and tap on the image to dismiss the dialogue box. Job done!
There you have it, we have taken an image and turned it into a funky Pencil Sketch.
