  • how to: line effects from vintage 80th pc-screens?

    hi

    i would like to realistically reproduce the typical cathode-ray line-raster-effects, old 70ies and 80ies computer screens used to have. formerly i had the free plugin "retroscan", which was kind of authentic, but it wont work anymore with CS3 (its from 1996)

    http://members.aol.com/deepdevice/

    any idea?

    thanks

    Not sure about 3rd party plug-ins. In Photoshop, you might try Filters > Sketch > Halftone Pattern > Lines. Run it on a duped layer and blend in softlight. Not exact but it seems to be the closest thing in the PS filter set.

      Don't know if these are CS3 compatible, but here's 2 freeware plugs.

            You can also create a document 1 px wide, and 2 tall. With the 1 px pencil tool, color the top pixel black.
            Select all, Save as a pattern. Then fill a new layer with your new pattern and set to overlay or multiply. Adjust opacity to suit.

                by dlowrey
                How do I add 3rd party filters to PSE6?

                I have tried adding them to c:\Program Files\Adobe\Photoshop Elements 6.0\Plug-Ins\Filters

                I also tried making my own Plug-Ins directory and pointing PSE6 to it via: Edit--->Preferences--->Plug_Ins...

                Greetings everyone,
                With this being my first foray into this forum I'm almost embarassed to post something that I hope is so rudimentary. I am working on a file on a Mac based photoshop CS3 platform and I want to run the spherize filter. The problem is that the spherize filter is grayed out,...

                I got an e-mail the other day from someone new to this hobby/sport asking why there were so few creations made with just the native filters built into Photoshop, e.g., Colored Pencil, Dry Brush, Watercolor, etc.

                How to make perfect lines look hand drawn
                by Fotodoktorn
                I have a photo as a background layer and I am adding perfect black lines (e.g. using the Photoshop line tool) to a transparent layer.

                How can I change the perfect lines on the transparent layer to make them look hand drawn?

                I would appreciate any suggestion.
