Linocut: Transform Photos Into a Black and White Image

Linocut Effect

Linocut is a printmaking method which uses linoleum, in a technique similar to woodcut. You cut a design into the linoleum surface and print it on a paper.

In a classical engraving the image is created by black strokes on a white background. Linocut's characteristic expressiveness, strong contrast between black and white, and its rich and exuberant strokes are made using a soft material. Some famous artists like Picasso and Matisse worked with this technique.

Under the Painting tab in the Settings Panel you can adjust parameters to convert a photograph into a linocut painting.
