How to apply sketch effect in Photoshop

Here, I will show you how to very easily turn any picture into a sketch in Adobe Photoshop.

I somehow happened to spare myself some time from Trickvilla. Aimlessly surfing on Facebook,  I noticed that I had not updated my profile picture for quite a long time now.

Wondering what to upload next, I opened up my Adobe Photoshop CS5 and gave my current profile pic a new look by “sketching” it, virtually.

Have a look on how to do it:

  1. Open up an image in Photoshop

  2. Press Ctrl+Shift+U to de-saturate it.

  3. Press Ctrl+J to duplicate your original layer.
    Duplicate layer 
  4. Select your duplicate layer & press Ctrl+I to invert colors of your image.

  5. Change the color mode of you duplicate layer to color dodge
    Color Dodge 
  6. Go to Filter>Blur>Gaussian Blur. Keep trying different values for  radius to obtain a better sketch.
    My preferred radius:7.0
    Gaussian Blur
  7. Save your new sketch version of the image. 😉

Search Google from your camera

Gone are the days when you used to type in the Google’s search box to find almost anything. With the new feature by Google called Google Goggles, you can search the web using your mobile’s camera!

All you have to do is open the app, snap a picture, and you get your search results.

Download Google Goggles for Androids & iPhones

Google Goggles works better with certain types of queries. Try taking pictures of

  • Books & DVDs
  • Landmarks
  • Barcodes & QR codes
  • Logos
  • Contact info
  • Artwork
  • Businesses
  • Products
  • Text

It can recognize up to three items at a time.

Currently, it’s not so good when taking pictures of animals, plants, cars, furniture, or apparel.

Note: Google Goggles is currently available for Android 1.6 and above, iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4 devices.

To see which version of Android you’re running, go to Settings > About phone > Firmware version.
