Selecting the right photos:

To produce great cartoons, you need to select the right photos. For best results, follow these rules:

portrait distance

Portrait photos:
To cartoonize a portrait, prefer a photo that has been taken from a short distance.

light quality

Light quality:
Avoid photos shot under poor lighting conditions or photos taken under 'hard' light.

image sharpness

Avoid using blurred photos. Use photos of objects with sharp details and clear edges.

Color adjustments:

The software lets you make selective color adjustments to the final cartoon image. By altering certain color tones, you can give your cartoons an impressive, abstract look:

Pop-art collages:

You can turn a cartoon with transparent background into a pop-art collage inspired by Andy Warhol's style. The product creates two different pop-art collages with 4 and 9 tiles. The size of these collages is 4 times and 9 times the original photo size, respectively: you can print the collage in a large format printer and impress your friendscustomers with your pop-art posters:
