How to Cartoonize a Photo
Cartoonizing a photo is a great way to give your images a fun, cartoon-like look. This technique can be used to create a variety of cartoon styles, from comic book-style cartoons to anime-style cartoons. Here’s how to cartoonize a photo using Adobe Photoshop.
Step 1: Add Your Image
The first step is to add your image to Photoshop. Choose the image you want to cartoonize and open it in Photoshop.
Step 2: Convert Your Image into a Smart Object
Once your image is open in Photoshop, you’ll need to convert it into a Smart Object so you can make nondestructive edits. To do this, go to the Filter menu and click Convert for Smart Filters.
Step 3: Apply the Poster Edges Effect
Next, you’ll need to apply the Poster Edges effect to your image. To do this, go to the Filter menu and select Stylize > Poster Edges. This will give your image a cartoon-like look.
Step 4: Adjust the Poster Edges Settings
Once you’ve applied the Poster Edges effect, you can adjust the settings to get the look you want. You can adjust the Edge Thickness, Edge Intensity, and Posterization settings to get the desired effect.
Step 5: Save Your Cartoonized Photo
Once you’re happy with the look of your cartoonized photo, you can save it. Go to the File menu and select Save As. Choose a file format and save your cartoonized photo.
And that’s it! You’ve successfully cartoonized a photo using Adobe Photoshop.
