Why Do Witches Burn?

Wondering if anyone knows of an app or maybe a technique in Photoshop that can convert a picture of something to simple outlines, like what you get in a coloring book.

I'd like to make a coloring book of some of my pictures and send it to my nieces.

Anyone know how to do that?

I can imagine ending up with something resembling this image:

Check out Prisma. Iíve used it as a jumping off point for stained glass patterns, so I expect you would be able to do coloring book-type things too.

Thank you, I'll look into that.

Photoshop CS3 (old version, for Mac) has a menu called "Filter".

There's stuff to play with in there.

Under the sub-menu, "Stylize" and then (sub-sub menu) "Trace Contour..." is one that comes close but it's not half as clean as your example.

Also try the filter: Filter --> Sketch --> Photocopy
(set Detail to a very low number; set Darkness to a high number)
(Photocopy might be better than Trace Contour)

I used to use Illustrator for just this. It has an outline feature.
