Project Description

Give your images a sophisticated graphic look by applying line engraving effect.

445436b1

Build the smart effect using the provided source image, and then apply it to any other suitable images (with a tonal range) adjusting the settings where necessary. Experiment and see where it takes you!

You can go for an oversized mesh effect, where you’ll be able to clearly see individual lines, or you can start off with a very large image and fill it in with a lot of lines which will create an overall image, but won’t really be recognisable unless you look really close like in a case of a real-life engraving. With this approach you’ll deliberately need to start off oversized, at least twice as big as your intended outcome, and downscale your work afterwards as a separate flattened image.


Complete your class project by uploading the following:

  • original images;
  • close-up of the images with the applied effect and visible line texture;
  • final images;
  • a few words about your process and what you have learnt.
