Steps

  1. 1
    To begin, we should either create a new document or open an existing one
    .
    This has been done in the video. The document is in the tab at the top and on the left. The layers are on the right.

  2. 2
    We make sure that we've selected the layer with which we will be working if we have more than one layer
    .

    .

  5. 5
    We click "Find Edges"
    .
    The layer will change quite dramatically. This probably wasn't the best example photo to use. If we have an image that we want to break down into a line drawing, then "Find Edges" is a quick way of doing that if we already made the contrast quite high.

  6. 6
    We zoom in
    .
    The layer has lost a lot of detail. Though, if we are using the filter, we probably want just the outline anyway. It is a good step if we are trying to take a photograph to use as an illustration. Possibly, in Adobe Illustrator.

  7. 7
    We can press "Ctrl" and "Z" to step backwards as well if we decide that we don't want the effect after all
    .
