    Default do Somebody know how to stylize picture?

    Do Somebody know how to stylize a photo like a portrait on dollar paper, like Franklin or Lincoln?

    Is it possible to make with standard Photoshop's tools? And how difficult it is?

    For quick and easy way. Firstly turn if your work is coloured into a Grayscale. The go to Filter menu down to Filter Gallery --> Sketch --> Graphic Pen. You will need to mess about with the settings to get it right so try changing the Stroke Length ---> Stroke Direction--->Light/Dark Balance.

    Thank, Albacore for your reply. But unfortunately, Sketch filter is too far from desirable quality of portraits on dollars. It is quick solution, of course, but is not acceptable for me. Earlier I sew some art-works made with help of Andromeda filter. But as I head this company is out of market and also it was complicated in usage. I was happy if somebody could advise some way hot to draw high-quality engraving in Photoshop. I met a couple tutorials which tell how to obtain similar effect with using a stripped lines over source picture in combination with different blending modes. Even I met a set of actions scripts which can do it. But quality of this approach is poor and it is not enough flexible to make a really beautiful art similar like Lincoln engraving portrait.

    first off - the engraving on a dollar [afaik] is not from a photo - I would imagine it is done from scratch

    photo's often have far too much detail to do this well, but you can usually do it more easily from line art see here:

    Very interested tutorial, handrawn. But it is almost hand-made design and it requires many hours of work and strong drawing skill. I interested in some technique what lets to work exactly with photos (maybe pre-processed before) and what can authentic results with minimum spent time.

    Good find Handrawn. I thought that I would have a go at this as it seemed a well thought out tutorial. Ok most of the instructions are there although I am not finished it yet but one simple line in the tut took nearly 2 hrs to do and I am still not finished. If I get the time to finish will post cartoon in this thread.

    you put in the work you get the result

    you don't want to to do this... well sorry, pay someone to do it for you, because photoshop is not a magic wand

    If you have a vector drawing program (I used Xara Designer Pro) it can be done in a few minutes. Possibly it can be adapted for Photoshop.
    Why not download the free trial and have a go. See attached mini tutorial.

    interesting though that is Bob, it's not an engraving effect, its a wave effect...
