Change a colored picture to a black single layered stencil
Stencil Revolution has a tutorial on "Converting a colour photo to a single layered stencil with Photoshop".
- Simply open the colour photo or image you will be using in photoshop (That’s easy right).
- Now, once you have your photo opened we need to convert it into a greyscale image by using the 'desaturate' feature.
- Once you have your image desaturated we need to adjust its 'brightness and contrast' to make the job a little easier and to increase the contrast between the black and white areas of the image.
Note: All these steps have pictures associated with them to make learning fun and more productive.
