The final week of the Oct One Four Challenge when we bring out the big guns.
As I am currently working my way through 700+ wedding photos, to be honest, I wasn’t up for anything particularly challenging.
So I pulled out the Lines action and fiddled with that. The original action gives you the lines but as there are around 50+ layers once the action is run there is a lot of opportunity for tweaking and adjusting.

What I Did:
– bought back the original photo in a mask
– bought back the original photo colour tones
– took away the really big squiggles
– added a Jai J background
– masked away some of the grass colour around the duckling
The Lines action is quite complicated, I need to watch the video that came with it to figure out what I can tweak where. In this image I appear to lost his tail feathers somewhere along the way (they were there originally) but couldn’t figure out how to get them back.
This effect is not to everyone’s taste. I like that it is different and quite flexible to edit beyond the initial laying down of the scribbles.
Do you like it or think it is too much? All thoughts and feedback welcome!
