Hi peeps,
Right i've been trying to do this all day & still can't work it out.:mad:

How do I convert a flash into outline using the computer??

What software do i need to do this? All the more better if it's free to.lol

I've tried to do it on the photoshop on here but can't be done, unless i'm missing something??? Tell me if i am please.:icon_mrgreen:

Thanks in advance for ANY help/advice given.

Much appreciated

Si

P.s by the way Mr Spoon, great tip about the thermal Fax, got one sunday:thumbsup:

hi,you need to use coral paint ( i use coral paint 6 )
load your coloured flash into the program by clicking on the folder option ( top left of screen,2nd icon from left ) " OPEN FOLDER " select your flash from disc or the folder you have it saved in.Once flash is displayed do the following:
click on the 4th dropdown menu from the top left of screen which is "IMAGE" then go down & select "SPLIT CHANNEL" then "SPLIT TO CMYK",this will create 4 windows.The last one being a black page with grey outlines. Now click on "EDIT" (2nd from left at top of page),then click "REPEAT SPLIT to CMYK" this will create more windows,the last one being your "LINE DRAWING".....Whilst this window is selected,you can save it to disk,and there you have it............hope this helps :icon_mrgreen:

In Gimp: Filters/ Edge-Detect/ Laplace this gives a black screen with white outlines
Colours / invert this will give white background and black lines.

Sometimes if you start with Filters/ Artistic / cartoon this will give a thicker outline for the laplace to pick up.

Gimp is free http://www.gimp.org/

Enjoy

Edit: just came across this today its real easy to use and again its free http://www.fotosketcher.com/
