Why are my photos black when using the sketch filter in Elements 10?
If i choose "photocopy" for example the photo is black - moving sliders has no effect. This is the same for most of the sketch filters.
Other filters seem ok. Tried uninstalling and re-installing.
Any ideas ???
The Sketch family of filters (with the exception of Water Paper) use a split tone effect. Basically they convert your image to two colors. The two colors that will be used are your current Foreground and Background colors.
I only see the behavior you describe when I have both my Foreground and Background colors set to black. Otherwise, this is working fine for me.
