Join Nigel French for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating a line drawing with the Fragment filter, part of Photoshop for Designers: Filters (2015).
Here I'm going to use the Fragment filter to achieve this line drawing effect that …we see on the right-hand side. Let's take a look at the finished version. …All we need to do is apply fragment, and the key here is that we apply the …Fragment filter with the Divide Blend mode. …So, to the beginning file. This version is a little bit murky looking. …So before I get to apply fragment, I want to brighten things up a bit. …I'm going to convert my layer to a Smart Object, and then apply a Shadows …Highlight adjustment. Now, Shadows Highlight is not strictly a filter.…
But when you apply it to a Smart Object, that's how it behaves. …I'm going to open up the shadows by 50%. And you can see there we have Shadows …Highlight now listed as a Smart filter, and I can revisit that. …I can just as I can with any filter, I can change the blending mode of that, etc. …I'm now going to duplicated that layer, Cmd+J, and I will delete the Shadows …Highlight from the top most copy, and then go and apply the Fragment filter.…
