Make an Image Look Like a Chalk-and-Charcoal Drawing
1. If you want to make your photo gain an abstract look (as though the lines are rendered in charcoal pencil and the colors with chalk), choose EffectsOChalk and Charcoal. The Chalk and Charcoal dialog box displays, shown in Figure 9-1.
In Adobe Photoshop Elements, choose FilterOSketchoChalk and Charcoal to achieve this effect.
2. Adjust the three sliders and click the Preview button. Review the results in the After window until you're satisfied with the changes to your photo. The three sliders are:
Charcoal Area: Adjust the amount of charcoal effect (similar to the chalk effect, but darker) in the drawing.
Chalk Area: Decrease and increase the amount of the chalk effect (a light drawing effect) in the image.
Stroke: Imagine that you created your image with chalk and charcoal pencils. This setting changes the size of the chalk and pencil surface used in the rendering.
?The Preview window shows the small area of the photo within the square on-screen, as shown in Figure 9-1. You can preview other parts of your image by dragging the small box within the larger image.
3. After you select the attributes, click the Apply button to make the changes to your image, as shown in Figure 9-2.
