Find Edges in Photoshop CS6
Edited by Freya, Alexander Avdeev, Eng
You're watching VisiHow. In this video, we are going to show you how you can find edges in Photoshop CS6 in Windows 7.
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.
We make sure that we've selected the layer with which we will be working if we have more than one layer.
We click "Filter" at the top.
We move the cursor to "Stylize".
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.
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.
We can press "Ctrl" and "Z" to step backwards as well if we decide that we don't want the effect after all.
This is a VisiHow video. We've just shown you how you can find edges in Photoshop CS6 in Windows 7. If you have any questions or comments, feel free to add them to the section below. We'll do our best to get back to you.
