Scanning your own artwork can often result in a grey mush in the white areas of your illustration, making it look a bit lacklustre and lifeless. How to brighten it up and remove the grey edges?
Kathleen Crawford contacted me and asked: Do you scan your own images into photoshop? I’d love to see a video on scanning & more photoshop edits. Do you find that you need to erase the background of the watercolour paper (is it textured or off white) behind the characters?
Here is a video for her and for you. The secret of scanning lies in the quality of your scanner, the quality of your scanning software and the levels tab in your image program, like photoshop or Affinity photo etc.
All image programs will have a levels window to adjust blacks, whites and the colours in between. Get to know it. It is your friend
