Old 20’s Style Action
Create high detailed charcoal drawing from your photos the easy way. So what does this action do?
- Automatically creates a detailed papper background
- Uses advanced selection and masking techniques to create a unique visual style for your photos
- Allows you to re-color any aspect of the design
- Keeps everything layered and structured well so you can experiment in all sorts of ways
- Allows you to easily export your design on a transparent background
TIP: For really crisp thin line work, scale your photo into the range of 2500 – 5000px. The line work will appear much finer on high resolution photos. For example, if you open your photo and its size is 1500×2500px – then scale it up to 2500×3500px or higher. The action has been tested and working on Photoshop CS3,CS4,CS5,CS6,CC+

Each action is thoroughly tested across between 50 – 150 different photos to ensure there are no errors. In the case where you do experience an error, contact me via email, profile or Facebook if you are still having troubles.
The Best Results
For the best results, it is recommended to use high resolution photos in the range of 1500px – 3500px. The optimal range is from 2300px – 4500px. The detail and clarity in the effects generated by the actions reduce the smaller your photo is.
After each action has finished playing, it creates a well organised layer structure. Each layer and folder are named appropriately and color coded to create a neat working environment for you. Here is my YouTube channel.
