Default Cartoon Effect

Is there a way in Lightroom or PSE to create a cartoon effect similar to those seen on the AG Edwards comercials on TV? If Lightroom or PSE can't do it, can you identify a product that does?

Thanks,
Jim

In Photoshop (I would assume they have this tool in elements but am not sure) you can play around with levels and posterize. I cant think of an easy way to do this in Lightroom.

The best way is probably to do it in Illustrator and convert the image to vector fields, but that would require more software. That would give you the most control over the final result.

I would agree with Matt here that the posterization filters are what you'd be looking for. I also like to turn portraits into line drawings that resemble coloring book images. I actually had two custom T-shirts made of this shot I took of a friend.

I've downloaded Topaz for the trial. The simplify module is pretty cool. Plus it works as a plug-in inside of Lightroom. It might fit the bill.

Thanks,
Jim
