Turning an image into a stencil with Photoshop
With the image already sized, you’ll need to flip it horizontally to print to the Brother Stencil Printer. (Edit ->Transform ->Flip Horizontal)
After it’s flipped, just add the Photoshop filter… Filter ->Filter Gallery - Within the “Sketch” folder there’s a filter called “Photocopy”
Adjust the Details and Darkness to your liking.
Once it’s complete, I usually make a copy of the same layer. (Layer ->Duplicate Layer) then change the blending mode to “Multiply” as to deepen the blacks.
