PSE11 - How to thicken lines?
Jul 6, 2013

Hello,

I'm trying to thicken lines in PSE11 - in order to create a Patrick Caufield style picture.

http://www.tate.org.uk/art/artworks/caulfield-after-lunch-t02033

I've used the Comic filter to reduce a picture to lines, then erased the sections where I want the original to come through.

However the lines are not thick and smooth like in a Caufield. How could I do this without manually painting each line?

I tried using several layers with a 'multiply' blend mode, but this did not have the effect I'm after.

I wondered about copying a layer to a new photo, resizing it by a tiny amount, then combining the two, but that just looks like motion blur.

I'd be grateful for any suggestions
