Colorful Poster/Comic Effect Tutorial

This Adobe Photoshop tutorial will show you how to turn your photos into an colorful posterdesign. This technique works well with images containing people of a size where they are not too close, but far enough away to make out general features. Also city, street, and market scenes seem to work well. I'll also show you how to make it a photoshop action so that you can run the action on other images easily. More examples of images created using this method are posted on our Poster Samples Page.
