View Full Version : Photoshop scan.
October 13th, 2009, 08:58 PM
I was wondering if there is a way so when I scan in my sketchbook stuff into the computer I will not have to draw it all over. When I draw it in another layer I can put it in front of the color layer. I can paint on the color layer w/o messing up the sketch. When I use the scan I cannot do this. I can just color on that layer and then I can mess it up. Is there a way in Photoshop cs2 i can bring just the drawing in as a layer and not the white paper?
escuse me if it is simple I'm stumbling on my own.

One of the simplest ways to do this is to set the scanned layer to 'multiply' - that way all the white will be transparent.
you cool with how to set a layer to multiply?

Just in case here's a simple walkthrough:
When you open you scan it will probably be locked - right-click and make layer from background
Now your scan layer is no longer locked you can select multiply here
