I was hoping you'd respond to this.
I was going to add that you might want to use Photoshop Sketch (mobile) to complete your design.
- Use a photo as a background layer, then continue to add brush strokes on top to mimic the hand drawn design.
- When you're done adding your stroke detail, go back to the photo layer and turn down the opacity or remove the photo completely.
- Share it with anyone via a number of options!
tthanks for your reply Ko, but it's not exactly what im looking for. Im a write having to contend with reorientating my website to something more author-centric. I'm employing macaque.io to do the build but I didn't want to have to contend with learning an additional ability on top of an already saturated schedule. That's why I'm steering toward an automatic solution.
Unfortunately there's no web-deployed rendering automation in Photoshop CC that I know of, but you can certainly create an "Action" to run or batch script that applies a predetermined set of filters/rules to all of the images in a folder (or individually if you prefer).
You'll still have to shepherd the images through Photoshop, but after you set it up, it can be repeated with one click.
The Action will/can:
1. Open file
2. Apply Filter
3. Save file
Process a batch of Photoshop files (or incoming raster images)
thanks Ko for taking the trouble to reply (I don't even know if im pronouncing your name right ).
