Rubber Stamp Effect

May 9, 2012 3:14 PM

Hey guys,

 

I am trying to create a rubber stamp effect over a jpg by using the following steps:

When I Live Trace the below image "A" it doesn't look like the original and changes into image "B".

Also, I cannot seem to extract the white from the picture after I have Live Traced it?

 

Can anyone help?

 

 

Image A:

Image B:

    erm... adjust your Live Trace settings. You may also want to add more contrast to the image in a raster app (like Photoshop) before trying to trace it.

    Is an Opacity Mask or a simple transparent TIF or PNG out of the question

     

    Do you have to vectorize the texture before you can use it? I do it either way, depending on what I'm after.

    Use Grayscale as the method rather than black and white.

    Here it is as a grayscale trace in CS 6's image trace feature

     

    75 levels of gray

    Oh I looked at the tutorial and you might notice that you use his screenshot to do the live trace and the the poster used a high resolution image file that is the difference.

     

    You need to do as the op probably dis is shoot something that will be useful as a mask and use that but it has to be of sufficien resolution.
