In this post, I am going to tell you how to convert any photo to line art in just few steps.

Below is the original image that I used for the tutorial -

Below is the result image -

Here's how to do it -
1. Make two duplicate layers of original image.

2. Select the topmost layer and then go to Image > Adjustments > Invert.
3. Now set its blending mode to Color Dodge.

4. Go to
Filter > Other > Minimum. Then change the radius value according to the image. In this case I put 2 as shown below.
5. Now right-click on topmost layer and Click on Merge Down. There will only be two layers left. Select the top layer and change its blending mode to Luminosity. You're done.
It produces the image below.
I hope you like the tutorial. If you have any doubts, please leave it in the comments section.

Where exactly do you, " right-click on topmost layer and Click on Merge Down." I realize I'm not the sharpest tool in the shed, but for the life of me I cannot find how to bring up that command given your instructions.
Photoshop is such a P.I.T.A. for me.

Please advise on how specifically and VERY exactly how to proceed with step 5.

I'm using CS2, perhaps that's the issue?
