Great hack! A lot of applications have a 'stencil' built-in filter that will do this as well.

It was really excellent post! Thanks a lot for sharing..

That's a GREAT idea. I'm going to do that this weekend.

quite amazing what photoshop can do! thanks for sharing.
I hope you can also check out our site at http://www.aheadinteractivetutorial.com. thanks!

Just FYI...the photocopy filter relies on the foreground color so make sure your foreground color is black (or something dark). If it happens to be set to white you will not see anything but a blank white page.
