A number of people have been asking variations of this question in my graphics communities lately.
This is a trick I use that can help with making colorizations or when removing backgrounds in Photoshop.
It's good when there are little details (like wisps of hair) that you want to keep.

I use PS CS at the moment, but I've been using this trick since PS5,
so most versions should be able to do it. I don't know anything about PSP,
so I can't say if it will transfer.

This is one for colour correcting.

this is how I make the sketch effect

I am far from completely satisfied, but it does get some results I love. Please let me know if you find any good tricks to improve on the process

this one was done by a much quicker process - I am hoping to find a way to combine themCollapse )
