Treated with the "Shanghai" technique by Cricket, as described in this message on the Retouching Forum at Make sure to check out her image...In case the message disappears, here's how she described her technique: "I created a line drawing, then used filter>sketch>stamp on it and set the blend mode to Linear burn. On the background layer I increased the saturation, ran filter>noise>median. I then flattened and saved. "

Here's my interpretation of Cricket's directions:
1. Make a duplicate layer of your image
2. Hold down the Control Key and press the letter "I"
to invert the image
3. Set the blend mode to linear dodge. Image will
turn white
4. Use the Gaussian blur filter slide to bring forth
some outlines from the white.
5. Make a blank new layer (just click on the new
layer icon at the bottom of the layer palette.
6. Hold down the Alt key and Click on the Layers menu
and scroll down to merge visible.
7. Go to Image/Adjust/Desaturate (In Elements, Enhance/Adjust Color/Remove
8. Go to image/adjust brightness/contrast and up the
contrast to make the outline blacker. (Enhance/Brightness/Contrast)
9. Change blend mode to linear burn.
10. (I had to figure this part out for the whole
thing to work)...Delete the background copy layer (the
one just above the original.
