Step 1: Open your image in Photoshop, Choose Image->Adjustment->Desaturate (or Ctrl+Shift+U by default) to make the photo to black-and-white.

Step 2: Click Layer-> Duplicate Layer, duplicate the background as background copy.
Image

Step 3: Use Image->Adjustment->Invert (or Ctrl+I by default), then the image will look like a negative.
Image

Step 4: From the layer palette, set the blending options as Color Bodge.
Image

Step 5: Choose Filter->Blur->Guassian Blur, set the radius 4 pixels.

Step 6: Don’t forget to merge the layer at last. So, everything is done!

I like that. I always thought it was done with a couple of filter effects. No wonder I couldn't ever get it right.....lol

Adobe Elements or Photoshop is the way to go. But if you just need to do it once in a while, it maybe worthwhile to go to any comp shop and shop around there are some simple software that can do the same tricks. However, download Picasa Photo Software first and see what you can do with it before you spends hundreds. Picasa is a great photo organizer for the thousands of digital images that you sure to have and it does simple editing too. Download it free @ http://www.geocities.com/lcming/Digitalp...

I somehow never used to get it right. I often would try to convert my images into pencil sketches but couldn't get the desired effect. I ll definitely try this out and see if it works this time....
