The core 'Cartoonizer' action

The "Cartoonizer" is the primary action, generating three unique cartoon styles:

The first is rich in detail and bursting with vibrant colors, the second boasts a flatter color palette, and the third offers a less intense sketch with emphasized edges and more vectorized look:

Quality In, Quality Out:

Selecting the right photos is very important, for creating outstanding cartoons. Well‑lit, high resolution photos, with sharp details, are essential:

light quality

Consider the lighting quality:
Avoid using photos taken in unfavorable lighting conditions or under harsh, direct sunlight.

image sharpness

Ensure image sharpness::
Opt for photos that exhibit clear, well-defined details and crisp edges, avoiding any instances of blurriness.

The actions in the 'Spice it up' group:

Once your photo has been transformed into a cartoon, you can further elevate your artistry using the actions in the 'Spice it up' group.

The first action allows you to make selective color adjustments and change the color of selective areas or correct facial tones, etc:

Add balloons:

Looking to add speech balloons to your cartoon creations? Our Photoshop and Photoshop Elements actions provide you with 16 customizable balloons in a range of colors, meticulously designed in Illustrator. Plus, you can resize them without any loss of quality.


Pop-art backgrounds:

The actions within the "Pop-art Magic" group work their magic by crafting an array of sunburst and halftone pop-art backgrounds entirely from scratch. You can seamlessly incorporate them into any Photoshop document, and they prove especially valuable when applied to images with transparent backgrounds.

Here, it's worth emphasizing a crucial point: If your image possesses a transparent background, our actions allow you to convert it into a cartoon while retaining that transparency.

Pop-art collages:

Turn your transparent-background cartoon into a stunning Andy Warhol-style pop-art collage effortlessly. Our product offers the ability to create two distinct pop-art collages, featuring 4 and 9 tiles, each enlarged to 4 times and 9 times the original photo size. These captivating collages can then be printed using a large-format printer, allowing you to craft impressive pop-art posters for your friends or clients.
