I am trying to make a multi-layer stencil effect in PS CS6.
How I got here: 1. Made several copies of original image 2. Image> Adjustments> Threshold, for each one at different levels. 3. Select > Colour Range > Highlights + delete. Gets rid of the white, leaving just the blackness of the threshold effect. 4. Make adjustment layer for to change the Hue/Saturation. Giving me different grays.
However, Ideally I would like to be able to change threshold levels, as a live effect, so I can see how the layers stack. Cannot quite figure out whether this is possible or not.
Once I remove the white, there's no turning back.
Any ideas how I could use the threshold effect with on a transparent background?
I appreciate your time!
TL;DR: How could I use the threshold function as black/transparent not black/white.
