Convert your photos into cartoons of staggering quality, using a host of creative tools!


The ”Cartoons & Pop Art” Photoshop actions will convert your photos into cartoons. Making use of a clever combination of filters & advanced features, they produce awesome results!

After you use the core action to convert the photo into a cartoon, you may use the extras actions to further enhance it: you may add two types of halftone pattern, make selective color adjustments, add a dramatic contrast effect, create grayscale versions, etc.

The actions work also on photos with transparency, without flattening them:
• you can then add any the available (10) pop-art backgrounds.
• another feature you'll love is the creation of pop-art collages that you can print and frame: cartoonize a photo with transparent background, and then use the pop-art collage actions to create Warhol-kind of collages, displaying 4 and 9 versions of your picture.

The actions create 16 different speech balloons. Designed in Illustrator, these balloons offer the power of scalable vector graphics. In addition, the actions combine two layers of halftone pattern to simulate the cartoon dots.
