Hi all. I'm looking for some simplified images of scientific equipment for my project poster and powerpoint. Then I found some really good ones from a software call ChemDraw, like this:
However, this software has limited types of equipment and I'm pretty sure that image is made from an actual photo. So I'm thinking whether it is possible for me to use PS to create this sort of hand-drawish, simplified images from actual photos? If so, how? In addition, since I'm a newbie, is PS the right software to do this kinda job? Thank you~
A common approach is to trace the image, which you'd do in a vector app like Illustrator. Draw over the photo, on a layer, then hide the photo layer. Illustrator has some limited autotracing too.
Could you be more specific on the workflow please? Or any link?
This is what I found and I think it's pretty promising for my purpose:
