Cartoons and Pop Art

Convert your photos into cartoons of staggering quality!

Convert your photos into cartoons of staggering quality!


The ”Cartoons & Pop Art” Photoshop actions will transform your photos into beautiful cartoons. The remarkable conversion quality is a result of a clever combination of many Photoshop filters & other advanced techniques.

There's more:
• You can add 16 different 'speech balloons' and 2 dot patterns.
• You can perform various color adjustments.
• You can create 2 different Warhol-inspired pop-art collages and 8 pop-art backgrounds!

To begin, simply load a photo and run the 'Cartoonizer' action. Having created the cartoon, you can spice it up using the other actions: you can add a halftone pattern, you can make selective color adjustments to enhance your cartoons and more.

The actions work also on photos with transparency, without flattening them:
• you can then add any the available 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.
