    Joy,

    Yes, experiment with all the filters. Particularly look under the Sketch offerings. Most are self explanatory as to what effect they create.

    Joy,

    Try this:

    On a flattened copy of an image...

    Filter>Blur>Smart Blur
    * radius 20
    * threshold=25
    * quality=high
    * mode=edge only

    OK this. Then go to
    Image (or it might be Edit) > Adjustments > Invert

    And there it is! You can select different parameters of course and play with the many other filters in the program, combining several if desired.

    Yes you can do this directly. Convert the image to grayscale and then
    choose filter>stylize>find edges. The effect is very dramatic. This
    procedure works particularly well where the image contains strong lines, as
    in architectural photos.

    Another way, depending on image:-
    open image;
    layer>duplicate layer;
    desaturate (ctrl+shift+U);
    layer>duplicate layer;
    invert (ctrl+I);
    change blending mode to colour dodge.
    Should now have an all white screen/image.

    Normal next is gaussian blur, varying the slider to get the best effect, but a lot of other filters can be used, have a play.

    Another to do this :

    Open your image, make a duplicate layer (in case something goes wrong)
    Filter / Blur / Smart Blur, for the Mode, select Edges Only. Adjust the settings to your needs
    Image / Adjust / Invert

    Voilà!

    This works well for me:
    auto tone,
    auto contrast,
    adjustment shadow/highlight (35% shadow)
    filter sharpen and filter sharpen edges,
    filter, artistic poster edges (edge thickness, intensity and posterization all 2)
    mode grayscale,
    adjustments brightness contrast - brightness 150 contrast 100 (or to your taste)
