    Classic Line Art Removal CS2

    Alrighty, so I know this is a noob question, and I'm sorry because this is probably the 1 millionth thread on this, but all the threads I've ever seen for how to remove the white part of a scan and just leave behind line art has been inscrutable to me. That, or for CS3, which I unfortunately cannot afford yet. So anyways, yeah, can anyone give me an easy to follow step formula for lifting my line art cleanly off of scans? Again, sorry if this is a dead horse, I've just been getting really frustrated trying to do this. Isn't it something with inverting the picture and selecting and deleting/reinverting? Gah, so annoying, thank you very much for any help!

    Reaching over what we need to get what we don't.

    There's also another way that you can do this. Its similar, but slightly simpler.

    After you clean up your work, double click the background lineart layer and change its name so its no longer locked.

    Go to channels, click "load channel as selection" the icon looks like a little dotted circle. Then press delete, and deselect.

    Go back to your layers and lock transparency on that layer (the first icon that looks like a little checkered box.) Then get a huge solid brush and color over the whole thing.

    Thats the easiest way Ive found. Thought I might suggest it, good luck

    Duplicate your lineart layer. Set the upper layer to "multiply". Activate the lower layer and paint into it.
