Talking how to achieve clean post edges effect

I am trying to find out how to make the image below in photoshop.
I can't get clean effect just by using cut out or poster edges filter.
If anyone knows any techniques about making the image, please show me how.
Thank you.

If I understand what you are asking; One of our members has an action on his site for edge effects: http://www.thelightsright.com/TLREdgeEffects.htm

Also wacom has a tutorial: http://www.wacom.com/tips/tip.cfm?ID...egory=Photoshp

There are also a nuber of programs and plugin that will do it for you as Photographic edges.

Lastly you can create a mask on the original image's layer. Add a new layer under the original, and fill with white or other light color. Then on your mask use a grundgy brush ( you may have to play with the brush presets to get just the effect you want) and paint around the edges of the mask with black... this way if you don't like it, you can fill the mask with white and try again.

Hope this helps.

You can try making a separate layer and using find edges.

Run levels until you get the type of lines you want.

Go to Hue Saturation Lightness and move the saturation down to zero.

Go to Select Color Range, Select white and delete it

Make a selection of your layer and fill it in black.

You can slighlty blur it to get rid of the jagged edges

Then run Cut out on the original layer.

Voila!

Here's a quick application of the technique. I used Glowing Edges instead of Find Edges but the principle is the same.
