    Ok what we are going to do is take this image and cartoon it!:


    Step one: Open the image in photoshop

    Step 2: Go to filter >> Blur >> Guassian Blur and Set the radius 3.0 or higher depending on the effect your looking for.

    Step 3: Go to edit >> Fade Gaussian Blur. I window will pop up, select mode to darken

    Step 4: Duplicate the layer or copy and paste it on top

    Step 5: Go to filter >> Other >> high pass >> set to 1.5 >> change the blending option of the copied layer to multiply. (You set this in the area just above the layers pallete.)

    Step 6: Go to image >> Adjustments >> Threshold >> Move dial to give best effect.

    Result should look something like this:

    i think it's a pretty good tutorial, like it's good for quickness. You could probably make it look more cartoony if you played round with the levels etc. I had a little go last night.

    I like it too. You know, it kind of makes the picture have a "Pop-Art" feel to it. Kind of like Andy Warhol style maybe?


    Or possibly sort of a comic book illustration feel to it. True what Ally says though, the user could probably tweak the settings and play around with the overall look.

    Did you have a play with the guassian blur? It can give different effects for different photos. Maybe I didnt use it enougth on this one.

    But anyways...opinion accepted blud. Can I cartoonize you just to see what it looks like?
