Using Photoshop CC.
How do I create a brush stroke effect without adding color?
I am painting already existing art.
The art already has color.
I want to create a brush stroke effect in the existing art, but I do not want to paint any color - just add a brush stroke effect.
How do I do this?
(I have searched but have found no answer)
You can either use the mixer brush or paint on a separate layer and use luminosity, or spotlight as a blend mode.
I guess to some extent even the Smudge Tool and the Art History Brush Tool could be used to simulate »painting strokes« on a photographs.
What do you mean by »brush stroke effect«?
Please post an example and an image you want to edit thusly.
Blend in a layer that has a brush stroke texture that is netural gray then adjust the imag's overall color.
