- use invert effect on one half of a photo/element.
Inverting the image is one of the steps when creating a sketch effect, the left side of the photo is inverted, color dodge blend mode applied and gaussian blurr added (all of this layered on top of the original photo). I then duplicated the original photo and placed it on top, leaving just the right side visible (transparency tool was used to smooth the transition between the inverted and non-inverted halves).
In the original photo the building on the left is dark and gloomy - not ideal, lol - so this technique brightened up the photo significantly. See the unedited photo here
