Cartoons and Pop Art

Convert your photos into cartoons with our the most popular PanosFX Photoshop actions!
State of the art photo cartoonizer with pop-art making functions: 3 Cartoon styles; 16 balloons; 2 pop-art collages; 8 pop-art backgrounds.

I've purchased other cartoon actions before, but these actions bring it to another level.
When you run this action, you get 3 different renditions of your image. I take many of my favorite images and use this action, as it brings a completely different dynamic to the photo!

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 backgrounds:

Does your image have a transparent background? Fantastic! Not only you can convert it to a cartoon and preserve the transparency; you can add 8 different pop-up backgrounds that can be switched on / off:

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:

16 balloons:

Do you want to spice up the cartoon with speech balloons? The Photoshop and Photoshop Elements actions produce 16 different balloons of customizable color! They are designed in Illustrator and you can resize them freely as many times as you wish, without losing quality:
