Default Tutorial 5: TV Scanlines

This is a really simple very cool tutorial that allows you to take a photograph and turn it into a TV Screen capture shot.

Step 1: Open a new document 1 pixel by 2 pixels with a transparent background.

Step 2: Zoom in to the maximum amount so that you can see what you are doing. Select the pencil tool (4th tool down on the right side of the tool's window, second option).

Step 3: Make black your selected color and make a dot in the top pixel (2 pixels tall, one wide remember) so that your 1x2 image is a black pixel above a transparent pixel.

Step 4: Go Menu: Edit-->Define Pattern. Name it "Scanlines"

Step 5: Open whatever image you want to do this on. Create a new blank layer. Go to Menu: Edit-->Fill... Under Contents use "Pattern" then where it reads "Custom Pattern" click the arrow next to it and choose the pattern you made. Press OK.

All done.

Oh, yes, the world of scanlines, grids and perspective grids...

Grids and Scanlines are one of those things you can put into almost any design...

Hmm, I am having trouble "defining pattern" Does the "scanlines" canvas need to be flattened? Selected? I can not get to where I can name the defined pattern. I click on "Define Pattern" and nothing happens. A little help here.

5.5 I believe, it's an older version, as the screen shots you have posted are slightly different than what shows up on my program.

Why would you add scanlines? That's usually the stuff I'm trying to get rid of.

Do you have a lesson on getting rid of scanlines?

Why add them? I think there are several signatures on this board that utilize scan lines very well in their signatures.

As for getting rid of them, its a very tenuous process and I know of no easy way to do it.

Yep, that's what I thought. Bummer. The business I'm in demands clean images for most applications, unfortunately most people bring me crap JPEG's, or worse digital prints with horrible scan lines.

Thanks anyway Alec...
