Fillmore-esque Poster Filter


New Member
Hello all,

I'm trying to replicate a design that can be seen here: for a website template.

Warping the text isn't a problem. But does anyone know what filters have been placed over the people in the image?

Since I'm no longer a designer, I don't have Photoshop or Illustrator at my disposal anymore. At the moment I'm using the Aviary Suite, and have had some success. It's just the people I can't seem to get to look right.

If anyone wouldn't mind sharing their thoughts about this, I'd appreciate it.

Looks like the image has just had it's levels/threshold adjusted, with maybe a little custom brush work in places to add the lines you see around the male's neck.
