    I am still kind of new to photo shop. I've been learning really well but i am trying to do something for a flyer for my shop and need a particular graphic.

    I want to take a picture like the one below and get just the outline of it. Look almost like just a drawing or outline of the actual pic.

    Here are a pic i'd like to do it with...

    Any help is appreciated.

    you use the pen tool to outline your image then you can clip it out and paste onto a new image or make a new layer with it...there might be an easier way but I've always used the pen tool :dunno:

    use the magic wand to select all the white in the background area. right click>select inverse> cut/copy> paste at will.

    easiest way.


    if the supercharger, or whatever that thing is, didn't have a solid colored background... then the vector path/pen tool woudl be your friend.

    You're better off using Illustrator to outline it and get a vector version. The tools are more robust than PS offers and, IMO, easier to use in this sort of application.

    Couple of circles, some well placed squares and you're done. 20min tops if you're familiar w/the program.

    An outline? You mean like this?

    [​IMG]

    Magic wand -> select blank area
    Selection -> Inverse
    Edit -> Stroke, center, black, 2 px
    Done

    I'm sure there's some way to antialias that but I didn't bother to look.

    I think he means a clean line-art version (like clip-art). Not just the silhouette.

    Needs some cleanup, but this was a couple minutes work. I used Fireworks instead of PS, but the process should be the same: Find Edges, then Invert. Clean up any 'gray' areas with a brush ... done.

    :werd: You can also use Levels at the end to get rid of the random dots and noise.
