"important" parts of a .pic.. I think I need a less general term as importance is in the eye of the beholder..

like asking photoshop to delete the ugly part of this picture hehe..

Maybe you can do something with:
Image -> Adjust -> Hue/Saturation.
the question is not really clear to me.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

I know what he's referring to... i had a filter called (amazingly enough) trace which would make an almsot pencil-like drawing of a picture.  I used it to make coloring books and etc for the little kiddies.  It worked like a charm.

Maybe do a seek on infoseek.com for 'photoshop trace plugin' or 'trace filter' or something to that effect...

Jambyte,

I found a site with some enhancing filters for PS3.  Have a look through the 'Previews' and see if any of them are any good for your purpose.

There's always Adobe Streamline. There's a lot of flexibility to it. Using the find edges filter in Photoshop can produce some pretty convoluted images with an almost wormy quality. Streamline converts the image to an Illustrator format, but you can probably import it right into PS.



hope that helps
